THE TWILIGHT ZONE #1-12 (J.M. Straczynski / Collectif)

J. M. Straczynski adaptera The Twilight Zone (La Quatrième Dimension) en comics pour le compte de l’éditeur Dynamite. C’est un terrain connu pour le scénariste qui a fait ses débuts en tant que Story Editor sur la troisième et dernière saison de la série dans les années 80. Le comics consistera en trois arcs de quatre numéros dont les dessinateurs n’ont pas encore été annoncés.

Si je comprends bien, ce sera trois histoires ?
Donc la chute arrivera au bout de quatre numéros ?
Je trouve ça un peu contre-indiqué pour une série dont le principe est de travailler sur des récits courts. J’aurais plutôt vu une série d’one-shots !

J.M. Straczynski en parle dans l’interview du dessus. C’est le choix du responsable éditorial Nick Barucci en réponse au format des comics actuels. Un choix auquel a adhéré le scénariste.

[quote=“Straczynski”]The difficult part of doing a comic based on “The Twilight Zone” is…well, how do you do it? The architecture and marketing of comics leans more toward ongoing stories than done-in-ones. But the anthology format is just that: you tell your story in one shot and get the hell out. The question became how to reconcile those two?

When Nick said they were going to do four issue arcs, I thought that was a smart approach, and thought, why not take it a step further? So I came up with three interlocking stories that could stand on their own (anthology format) but which in the long run would begin to intersect with each other, creating a larger narrative (comic format).

He has a new life, a new name, a new face and a new past. No one can ever come looking for him. It’s everything he could possibly have asked for. Until he discovers that someone else has moved into the life he abandoned and thought would simply fade away. Someone who lives in his house, his life, with his name, his lover, and worse still, his own face. A total stranger has stolen everything he is, was, and hoped to be…and he’s not about to let that theft go unanswered, no matter what it may cost him.

It comes down to a simple question: run and save her life, or fight for the lives of others.[/quote]

Ben Chambers is a private investigator at the end of his career, an arc best viewed through the bottom of a whiskey bottle. He has investigated missing persons, adulterous lovers, embezzling partners…and none of it has ever meant anything. None of it has ever changed anything. So Ben looks at his life now and wonders, what was it all for, really? He resignedly takes on one last case, investigating the unsolved murder of corporate CEO Jason Black’s son, an Iraq veteran killed shortly after an anti-war rally. Ben expected that his investigation would take him into the past through photos and research and interviews. What he never expected was that the trip into earlier years would be literal…as he time travels back to the night of the murder, and discovers that he finally has his chance to make a difference, courtesy of The Twilight Zone.[/quote]

When Private Investigator Ben Chambers was hired to investigate a murder that took place several years earlier, he never anticipated that his inquiry would lead to the seemingly impossible: to penetrate the veil of time and see the murder happen right before his eyes. Now that he knows who committed the crime, a larger question makes itself apparent: can he stop it from happening? Can he save the life of a young man who didn’t deserve to die? Or does the timestream prevent such things from ever happening? The answer to those questions of the past will forever alter Ben Chambers’ future.[/quote]
