Le petit éditeur First Second publiera le nouveau comics “
The Wrenchies” de l’artiste Farel Dalrymple ( Delusional, Prophet). L’histoire, qui se déroule dans le même univers que le web-comics “ It Will All Hurt”, raconte la guerre que mène un petite groupe de délinquants contre les zombies, démons et autres hommes de l’ombre pour la survie de leur planète désolée.
The Wrenchies” sortira cet automne.
Because I choose to work in comics I think most of the time there is this automatic assumption that you should expect children to enjoy it. I understand that, but there is some stuff in there that just isn’t appropriate for really young readers. If you object to a lot of swearing and violence and drug use in your stories then you probably won’t like it. I mean, I haven’t showed it to my mom yet. Most of my work until “The Wrenchies” has been weird but still kid-friendly and all-ages. With this book I was deliberately trying to make it more intense and horrific. I didn’t want anything exploitative or sexy in there, but I wanted the world to feel edgy and scary like a lot of real-life, grown-up situations feel to me. In the previously mentioned movie “Over the Edge,” I love the way the kids talk to each other and drink and do drugs. The same goes for the amazing 1983 graffiti documentary, “Style Wars.” The children in those movies, which aren’t kid’s movies, seem like adults and are just dealing with life. In a different way but sort of like in Charles Schulz’s “Peanuts,” there aren’t any adults around, just these kids dealing with life on their own, negotiating philosophical points.
