Donny was feeling pretty settled in his cushy life. Even though his girlfriend was politically active, he never gave social justice or racial issues any time. So, when Dorrie discovers something she shouldn’t have and ends up dead, no one expects Donny to be the guy to carry on her work—but that’s exactly what he does, putting on a mask and taking to the streets. He soon finds himself tangled in family history, political conspiracy, and a plot that goes far deeper than he ever imagined.

Set in the heart of Los Angeles, this new VIGILANTE series raises an old question while making it relevant to our times: when you witness bad things being done, how far would you go to set them right? Written by Gary Phillips, noted writer of the Ivan Monk series of novels, and drawn by Elena Casagrande (Suicide Risk), this hard-hitting tale of revenge and redemption takes the Vigilante into a whole new danger zone.[/quote]

Par curiosité, j’ai feuilleté le numéro uno de cette mini. Décidément, c’est un format que j’apprécie.

Bref, le sujet social a l’air sympathique à suivre. Mais surtout l’aspect polar du book est très rendu par la partie graphique (dessin et couleurs).

Je passerai par la case TPB. :wink:

Donny has lost everything—his girlfriend, his home, and nearly his life—but the men who did this to him have also woken him up. To put it all back together, Donny will need to tear apart the conspiracy that rocked his world. And for that, he’ll need help. Namely, the retired Los Angeles vigilante known as the Eastsider is going to teach Donny a thing or two about putting on a mask and kicking some butt.

Donny has landed in hot water. Both literally and figuratively. The trail of his girlfriend’s killer has led him into a dangerous conspiracy, and the cops now think he’s a murderer himself. The only way out is to take a jump in the Pacific Ocean, but the mysterious assassin Spectros is going to make sure that the Southland Vigilante never comes up for air.

Annulée après trois numéros, la mini-série en question dans cette discussion a finalement paru en recueil, et dans son intégralité. Comme promis par l’éditeur.

J’ai peine à croire qu’elle trouvera le chemin des éditeurs hexagonaux, mais pour ceux qui le peuvent (traduire, qui lisent la langue américaine) Vigilante : Southland est une lecture tout ce qu’il y a de recommandable. Je n’en dis pas plus sur mon blog [Pour en savoir +] !

À condition néanmoins, d’aimer les récits qui sentent le bitume, l’arme de poing et la violence de rue.

J’avais loupé l’info.
En retard, je te dis merci.
