UNCANNY #1-6 (Andy Diggle / Aaron Campbell)

L’éditeur Dynamite accueille à partir de fin juin la nouvelle série Uncanny du scénariste Andy Diggle et du dessinateur Aaron Campbell.

Weaver est unique. Ou c’est ce qu’il croit. Il a la capacité de voler les compétences de ses semblables pendant une durée de temps limitée, ce qui lui permet de vivre sa petite vie d’escroc sans attirer l’attention. Jusqu’au jour où Weaver se retrouve au centre d’un complot international où ses adversaires pourraient bien avoir les mêmes capacités que lui.

SIX BILLION SKILL SETS. ONE LAST CHANCE.
Weaver is unique, or so he thinks. Born with an uncanny ability, he can steal other people’s skills – their memories, abilities, and expertise – for a limited time. A man with a power like that could change the world; but as a professional gambler, con-man, and thief-for-hire, Weaver prefers to look out for number one. That is, until he finds himself drawn into a dangerous game of international intrigue where the rules keep changing, the players are hidden… and the first thing he stands to lose is his life. And maybe, just maybe, he isn’t so unique after all…[/quote]

Weaver’s uncanny ability makes him uniquely adapted for a life of crime… but also makes him a target. Now, after one grift too many, he finds his list of friends as depleted as his credit rating. Hunted through the mean streets of Singapore, he finds an unexpected ally in the mysterious Maggie, the ticket to a new life… or a one-way trip to the morgue![/quote]

Professional thief-for-hire Weaver is introduced to the mysterious arms dealer Deacon Styles, who has a proposition for him. All he has to do is steal a briefcase.

J’ai connu Aaron Campbell plus inspiré, plus clair-obscur et plus dynamique. Ça reste très chouette à regarder, mais c’est un peu mou, un peu… euh… franco-belge, je dirais ? Mais ça reste à surveiller, mazette !

A well-laid plan goes all to hell when Weaver smells a rat… but only too late does he realize that he’s the bait in the trap. He’s about to learn why “specials” always work alone, though sticking together might be their only chance to get out alive…[/quote]

J’ai lu cette première saison hier soir, et c’est franchement pas mal.
L’ensemble commence comme un thriller avec un escroc au centre (classique), puis suit une mécanique bien efficace (deux épisodes deux “recrutement”, deux épisodes de mission ratée, deux épisodes de début de réponse).
Aaron Campbell est un peu coincé par son style photographique au début, mais il parvient à s’en émanciper au fil du récit, graissant un peu son encre afin de rendre plus vivantes les scènes.
L’ensemble m’a fait penser à la série de James Hudnall, ESPers (les jeunes ne vont pas connaître) avec son côté “X-Men pour les nuls”. C’est plutôt bien joué, très prometteur, avec des intrigues à tiroir, des révélations, faciles parfois mais toujours efficace.
Ça donne bien envie de lire la suite.
