THE THING #1-6 (Walter Mosley / Tom Reilly)

Ça va chauffer/It’s clobberin’ time ! Ben Grimm aka la Chose va avoir droit à une mini-série à la fin de l’année (en amont de la sortie d’un omnibus consacré au neveu préféré de la tante Pétunia).

New York, NY — August 19, 2021 — This fall, renowned storyteller Walter Mosley, known for his definitive and bestselling international work in mystery and crime fiction, brings his signature fiction writing style to a sweeping saga of Yancy Street’s favorite son in THE THING. The six-issue series debuts in November 2021.

Written by Mosley and with art by Tom Reilly (X-Men: Marvels Snapshots), the story will range from the urban sprawl of the alleys of Manhattan to the furthest reaches of the cosmos itself. In THE THING, a lonely evening and a chance encounter (or is it?) sends Ben Grimm embarking on a sojourn that will have him confronting—and battling—figures both old and new.

Featuring guest appearances from throughout the Marvel Universe, as well as precision artwork by Reilly, THE NEXT BIG THING will remind audiences why The Thing is one of the most popular and beloved characters in the history of comics!

Don’t miss THE THING when it hits stands this November.

Team chauffer.

Oh non, pas Kindred. :grin:

Le moustachu serait-il l’ex d’Alicia (aperçu dans The Thing de Slott, d’où la jalousie de Ben Grimm) ?

Un début qui me laisse froid, et ne me fera pas continuer.
Déjà, léger souci, pour moi : l’incohérence du propos avec la série actuelle. Les one-shots récents autour des Fantastiques avaient le bon goût de s’immiscer dans la relance par Dan Slott, que ça soit par la situation des personnages, les looks, les costumes. Il n’en est rien ici : Ben et Alicia sont fiancés et ne sont pas mariés, et Reed n’a pas de barbe.
Mais, surtout, c’est assez creux et vain. On a un Ben fâché de n’avoir pas ses copains après son retour de vacances personnelles, qui s’énerve après un bellâtre qui drague Alicia, et cause des problèmes. Reed doit revenir de Moscou pour le sortir de prison, Alicia veut une pause, et une étrange entité suit Ben. Mouaif.
C’est furieusement ennuyeux, et l’ensemble des rebondissements sonne faux. Tom Reilly propose des planches efficaces, dans un style classique réussi, mais le scénario de Walter Mosley me passe à côté.

La suite sera sans moi, et sans regret.
