THIS DAMNED BAND #1-6 (Paul Cornell / Tony Parker)

Ils pensaient seulement idolâtrer Satan alors qu’ils idolâtraient vraiment Satan !

Après un run en dents de scie sur Wolverine et en parallèle à son retour sur Doctor Who, le scénariste Paul Cornell lance sa nouvelle série This Damned Band avec l’aide du dessinateur Tony Parker chez Dark Horse à partir d’août.

Décrit par Cornell comme une réflexion sur le Rock’n’Roll et ses dérives, This Damned Band est un “docu-comic” fantastique s’intéressant à The Motherfather, le groupe de rock le plus populaire de 1974 qui trempe abondamment dans le pop-occultisme.

[quote=“Cornell”]That moment in history is the point when rock bands were earning so much money that, for a brief moment, they began to have geopolitical power. Put that together with a bunch of kids who started out playing pubs and the belief systems/poses it was cool to strike back then, and you’ve got some huge concepts that don’t quite fit together – which is what I love to make stories from.

Our fictional band, Motherfather, is the biggest rock band of 1974. They’re plugged into how pop occultism existed back then, from Dennis Wheatley to comic books. It has become clear that, for many real world figures of the time, the flirtation with Satanism had exactly the same depth as some of the more macho stars’ flirtation with pretending to be gay. I love it when pretense hits reality head on, so as we say in the tag line: they thought they were “worshiping Satan,” but they were actually worshiping Satan.[/quote]

The band Motherfather is starting to wonder if maybe the whole "pretending to worship Satan" thing wasn't such a good idea-especially after Satan himself comes around for a visit!

The wickedly funny romp that mixes classic rock with black magic continues from Paul Cornell (Wolverine, Action Comics) and Tony Parker (Mass Effect: Foundation)!

Relationships crumbling, groupies gone missing, owing money to drug dealers, meeting the devil himself—you might say the band Motherfather has problems.
