J’ai eu la surprise de retrouvé ce n° dans ma pile de news, je n’ai pas souvenir de l’avoir pré-commandé. Mais je l’ai gardé… À suivre après lecture.

[quote=“Kieron Gillen”]The thing about Uber is it’s not a book about superhumans in any way, specifically not about the genre, and for me that was part of the point, as well.

It’s a book that does not shy away from the question of monstrosity — it’s very much a theme. At what point does it become divorced from the intrinsic humanity? ‘Superhuman’ is just another way of saying not 'human.[/quote]

Uber Vol 1 debuts in monstrously huge fashion, with a collection that goes far beyond the story. This epic tome contains Uber #0-5, the first story arc, for the first 176 pages. But then we Enhance that with 160 pages of additional material! From behind-the-scenes interviews, scores of pages of the original pencil art, notes from the writer on development of the story, to an epic cover gallery, this is not to be missed. But all that extra material is only available right here, this edition of 5000 copies, and the Remarqued edition of 350 copies offered this month, are the only editions Previews will offer. Then it’s gone. This Enhanced HC will not be reprinted. Uber Vol 1 collection in paperback will be released in 2014, with the full 176 pages of story. But none of the special back matter offered only here. This is also a Direct Market Exclusive, the Uber Vol 1 Enhanced Hardcover edition will not be available in book stores or on Amazon!
1945. Germany is in ruins. The war in the west can only be days away from ending. Threats of “wunderwaffen” to be unleashed by the dying Reich have become laughable. There are no miracle weapons here. It’s over. It has to be over. It’s not. There’ve been stories which have mixed enhanced humans and World War II before. There’s never been one like this. See super beings in a whole new light as Gillen presents an epic original series that not only rewrites history, it redefines the genre! Limited to 5000 copies.
