VERTIGO QUARTERLY: CMYK #1 (Collectif)

Cet été, Vertigo lancera “Vertigo Quarterly: CMYK”, une mini-série anthologique en quatre numéros inspirée par les quatre couleurs basiques de l’imprimerie du comics: le Cyan, le Magenta, le Jaune et le Noir.
Le premier numéro comprendra le travail d’auteurs tels que Jock, Fabio Moon, James Tynion IV, Martin Morazzo, et Tony Akins.

[quote]The four colors that are the basis of comic coloring—CYAN, MAGENTA, YELLOW, BLACK—serve as the inspiration for talent to push the boundaries of short storytelling in the VERTIGO QUARTERLY: CMYK anthology series.

Starting with stunningly simple, bold covers, CMYK will defy all conventions of traditional comic book anthologies. The unifying color may suggest a mood, a plot point, a coloring technique—limited only by the imagination of the incredible talent involved. Starting with CYAN this Spring with stories and art by Jock, Fabio Moon, James Tynion IV, Martin Morazzo, Robert Rodi and Javier Fernandez, Amy Chu, Joe Keatinge, Cris Peter, Shaun Simon and Tony Akins and more! Followed by MAGENTA in summer, YELLOW in fall and BLACK in winter, you’ll see color throughout the year as only Vertigo can deliver.[/quote]

The four colors that are the basis of comics coloring serve as the jumping-off point for creators to push the boundaries of short graphic fiction in the new VERTIGO QUARTERLY: CMYK series. Starting with stunningly simple, bold covers, CMYK will defy all conventions of traditional comics anthologies. The unifying color could suggest a mood, a plot point, a coloring technique – limited only by the imagination of the fantastic creators we’ve lined up. And starting with CYAN, we have tales by some of the best talents in comics – a who’s who of creative minds. Jock, Fabio Moon, James Tynion IV, Robert Rodi, Shaun Simon, Amy Chu, Joe Keatinge, Cris Peter, Tony Akins and more will take on the challenge of telling compelling stories that scream cool “blue.” VERTIGO QUARTERLY: CMYK will continue through 2014 with MAGENTA in summer, YELLOW in fall and finally BLACK in winter. Be prepared to see color as only Vertigo can deliver!

Le scénariste Joe Keatinge (Shutter) a déclaré sur son site que l’histoire qu’il a proposé pour le collectif CMYK (et notamment la conclusion) a été honteusement altérée par les responsables éditoriaux de Vertigo Comics:

[quote=“Joe Keatinge”]Today sees the release of the first of four quarterly Vertigo CMYK anthologies. It has a Cyan cover.
The issue is advertised as featuring a collaboration between Ken Garing and me, with me on story and Ken on art, but there’s an issue with this and I felt the need to make it clear.
The story as published does not entirely reflect what we conceived and I originally wrote.

I’m going to make this as quick possible as there’s a lot going on in the world that actually matters, but I felt like, after the warm reception to SHUTTER and PLANETOID, some people reading this might buy comics with our names on them and thought it was unfair to them to not say something.

The quick gist is I was asked to contribute a story. I brought in Ken as INTERGALACTIC’s going to be a while and this would be a fun, quick way to get something by us out there. Vertigo via Editor Mark Doyle was very accommodating in allowing us to collaborate. Seemed like a good deal.

**The story Ken and I conceived together, which I scripted, ended up coming back in a proof PDF where — despite Ken’s art looking even better than ever — our story and my dialog were drastically altered, specifically our ending. We were told by editorial that it was locked in and set for publication without further explanation as to what happened or why. **
I need to be clear — Ken did an astonishing job with the art and the whole book is worth the price of admission for what he did alone. It’s absolutely beautiful and it’s truly an honor to work with him.
**And the truth is maybe no one would ever notice. Maybe people will like the end result much more than what we wanted to do. Maybe it was the right call, but since it was contracted and solicited as an original work by the two of us I feel uncomfortable taking credit for it, despite how proud I am of everything Ken did and how great working with him is. **
All this said, I think playing the blame game and vilifying people is childish and unnecessary, especially since I’m not even angry about this at this point. I remain only extremely disappointed its not what we set out to do from a story perspective, despite how wonderful the art is. Lesson learned. Moving on.
There a lot of good stuff in there and encourage you to check it out for those reasons, especially Ken’s artwork, but due to all this I’ll not be discussing this story any further at this time.[/quote]

Il a ensuite été interpelé sur sa page twitter par le responsable Will Dennis qui dénonce un mensonge anti-corporation (sans jamais révéler ce qui s’est vraiment passé puisqu’il n’était pas présent lors des discussions):

[size=85]Où: ce qui se passe chez DC Comics quand ils mettent finalement la main sur Vertigo.[/size]

ouch! Règlements de comptes à DC Corral!

Aaaahhhh Vertigo cette terre si propice pour les auteurs, une époque révolue. Je dois dire que c’est une honte. Vertigo n’était-ce pas l’endroit ou DC prenait des risques et les auteurs étaient libre de leurs histoires ?
Je dois dire que je suis bien triste devant cette mauvaise blague que semble devenir Vertigo. Encore plus quand je lis ça. Ce qui rajoute aux propos tenu par Willigham je sais plus trop où. Ou il disait que ça avait iben changé maintenant.

Yep, c’est triste. L’esprit de Vertigo est bel et bien mort. Heureusement qu’Image a repris le flambeau.

vu comme c’est partis je pense que plus personne ne voudra travailler avec DC à l’avenir je ne sais pas ce qui se passe en interne mais ça sent pas bon tout ça que ce soit pour le mainstream ou vertigo

La nature n’aime pas le vide, donc bon, je n’ai pas d’inquiétudes …
