THE WILD STORM #1-24 (Warren Ellis / Jon Davis-Hunt)

Yep… par contre, j ai un bémol sur le dessin… ca me fait penser a Araujo mai sprofessionnel mais ca manque parfois d expression faciale…

voilà ce que j en dis ailleurs (je dis peu)

[quote]The Wild Storm #1
J aime bien même si pour l’instant on semble dans du pur ellis avec tous ses tics et ses marottes…
Alors ca fait vraiment série qui va avoir une fin tellement ca brasse de personnages… on a pas l impression de lire une série dans un univers partagé (même si là ca sera 4 séries).
Le dessinateur fait penser à Araujo qui saurait dessiner. Comme dit Slobo c est ultra clair et fait pour etre ultra lisible. Mais comme araujo… on distingue mal les emotions.
Un bon début en tout cas pour moi.[/quote]

Pour le dessin, j’ai plus l’impression que ce trait épuré veut avant tout donner un aspect très réaliste à l’ensemble.

Et je trouve cela très réussi. Tout l’inverse de l’époque de Jim Lee voire de Jim Lee lui-même.

Cover by: Jon Davis-Hunt, Afua Richardson, Jim Lee.

Description: All Angela Spica did was save someone’s life. And now hers is over. The rogue engineer lies bleeding in a place she hopes nobody will find - but she’s wrong. The people embedded in the secret power structures of the world are tracking her. Skywatch. Halo. International Operations. A covert operative called Grifter. If only she hadn’t unknowingly foiled an assassination planned by her boss. If only her boss wasn’t the one person more interested in the Engineer’s transhuman implants than in her life. It’s all going very wrong, very quickly. There’s going to be more blood.

[quote]Working with Warren is incredible. Of course, for me, there is a huge fanboy element. I have tried very hard, not to simply write gushing emails telling him how much I enjoyed this, or that etcetera. But mainly, from a creative point of view, it’s been amazing. It’s a huge project to undertake, but Warren’s scripts are a joy to draw from. They include a lot of very specific detail, not just about the design of certain characters, but often, the actual structure and layout of the page. Wherever that occurs in the script, I always try to take the time to run with any ideas, concept and research them as much as possible and amplify them where I can.

It was Warren’s idea to use rigid 9 or 6-panel grids, which I think has also really helped give the book its own ‘feel’ and works with the story we’re telling. The project has been really challenging and incredibly creatively rewarding. I’ve just tried really hard to push myself as much as I can with each scene.[/quote]


Ce deuxième épisode est une nouvelle fois très copieux. J’ai eu un petit doute au début avec cette scène muette de 5-6 planches sur l’Ingénieure. Mais rapidement, Ellis repart dans la préparation de l’univers qui est une vaste conspiration entre les services secrets et les entreprises comme HALO.

Comme il en avait convenu lors du numéro de lancement, il prend du temps pour présenter Cole Cash et sa petite équipe aux services de Marlowe suite aux événements mortels précédents. Le numéro risque d’être savoureux à ce titre.

Même s’il en dit beaucoup, on en demande plus, plus… que ça aille plus vite!

Est-ce que cette impatience va de pair avec la qualité du book? A n’en pas douter…

Vite la suite, bordel !!!

But, unknown to her, she might yet have a chance to survive this terrible day. The Grifter has a plan.

A storm is building. And through it all, a mysterious woman crackles though the electrical devices that inhabit our lives, slipping among the invisible networks of the world.

C’est propre comme l’on dit.

C’est cash, c’est prenant, les trajectoires des personnages s’entrecroisent, bref, c’est du bon.

C’est aussi très accessible et j’ai une tendresse pour le numéro précédent mettant en scène Bendix. Sacré homme-météo. :wink:

Angie Spica is given access to Jacob Marlowe’s secret lab, and discovers a treasure trove of technologies and sciences strange, ancient and alien. In this underground hold, she begins the process of fixing herself-and, perhaps, even evolving herself. In another hidden room, Jackie King and her team at IO begin planning a covert cyberwar attack against Skywatch-something even her own boss doesn’t know she’s doing.

A votre avis, la mise en page, c’est l’auteur ou le dessinateur ?

Là sur ce titre… je penche pour ellis

Benoît pensait aussi que le procédé vient d’Ellis (voir plus haut)…

Ca change du classique quatre cases panoramiques…

Là, je crois que le choix vient du bla-bla énorme écrit par Warren Ellis. Il tasse, il entasse beaucoup d’informations. Là, on vient de rencontrer Jack Hawksmoor par exemple.

Par contre niveau dessin, ce n’est pas glorieux même si l’ambiance réaliste est bien présente. Mais tous les visages de femmes se ressemblent, seule la couleur des cheveux diffère…

Double par contre, car lire une série qui propose une continuité graphique, c’est un grand luxe de nos jours.

The Wild Storm #11

Written by Warren Ellis, art and cover by Jon Davis-Hunt, variant covers by Bryan Hitch and Jim Lee.
The Wild CAT must reinfiltrate the Hightower site in order to prevent their own exposure – and also the roll out of a new global surveillance tool that will cement I.O.'s dominance over the planet. But if you’re a bunch of aliens and an ex-spook who faked his own death, you can probably be forgiven for thinking about your own weird skin first. Jackie King and the I.O. analysis team could take a leaf out of their book, because they’re about to undertake a cyber-attack on Skywatch, the managers of outer space, that could easily get them killed…
