VS #1-5 (Ivan Brandon / Esad Ribic)

Pour ceux qui se demandaient ce que l’artiste Esad Ribic ferait après Secret Wars, voici la réponse : il travaille avec le scénariste Ivan Brandon (Drifter) sur la nouvelle série VS à paraitre chez Image Comics l’automne prochain.

VS se situe dans un futur où la guerre est devenue synonyme de divertissement pour le grand public. Satta Flynn est l’un des plus célèbres soldats. Malheureusement pour lui, il va bientôt découvrir ce que ça signifie d’être du coté des perdants…

Writer Ivan Brandon (DRIFTER) and Esad Ribić (Secret Wars) team up with colorist Ive Svorcina, letterer Aditya Bidikar, designer Tom Muller, and editor Sebastian Girner for a futurist drama in, VS.

VS follows the rise and fall of Satta Flynn, a wildly popular soldier in a time when War has been privatized and is a form of entertainment.

Armies financed and equipped by super-corporations. War medics that double as Pit Mechanics. Satta’s every move is LIVE on TV. And for the first time, Satta finds out what it’s like to lose.

VS is set to launch in Fall 2016.[/quote]

Là encore, Esad Ribic propose de magnifiques pages.
Décidément les dernières annonces d’Image sont des réussites en terme artistique (du moins, tout à fait à mon goût).
