WEIRDWORLD #1-5 (Jason Aaron / Mike Del Mundo)

La liste des tie-in de Secret Wars continue de s’allonger avec le retour de Weirdworld (une série de fantasy publiée par Marvel dans les années 70).

Cette fois-ci c’est le guerrier Arkon (vu à plusieurs reprises dans les annual X-Men des années 80) qui sera le protagoniste principal de la série située dans le domaine de Battleworld qui est infesté de monstres.

Pour cette histoire, Aaron évoque l’influence des séries de Fantasy des 70’s (Conan, Kull, Elfquest, Warlord).

Nom de Zeus…je vais finir par perdre le fil des mini-séries Battleworld, mais il y en a pas mal d’intéressantes…et les références évoquées par Aaron rendent ce nouveau projet plutôt alléchant…

Vu comment il se démerde comme un chef dans un registre voisin sur “Thor : God of Thunder”, c’est clair que ça met l’eau à la bouche.
Perso, je suis par contre déjà complètement perdu dans cette avalanche d’annonces…

Ouuuuhhhh Arkon, ça faisait un moment, ça me branche bien cet histoire;

ca permet de reediter le weirdworld original en TP vo (y a eu de la VF chez aredit même si tout n est pas sorti)

Une autre couverture de Del Mundo :

Le sang vert ça me rappelle toujours Evil Dead 2.

Marvel ratisse tellement large qu’il y aura forcément des trucs fun. Mais peut-être pas là où on s’y attendrait…

Au tour de Steve Epting (à la revoyure je préfère son style 90’s) :

Moi j’aime bien.

This June, the most dangerous corner of Battleworld is born in WEIRDWORLD #1 – a brand new entry in the Secret Wars! Today, Marvel is pleased to present your new look at the exciting first issue from blockbuster writer Jason Aaron (“Star Wars,” “Thor”) and critically acclaimed artist Mike Del Mundo (“All-New X-Men,” “Elektra”). Venture deep into the strangest domain of them all as a lone warrior embarks on a savage quest. It is a world of swords, sorcery and all things bizarre. A land of gods and monster. Where perverted science and arcane magic run rampant. It is Weirdworld, the land where lost things go. Among its twisted and crazed landscapes walks Arkon, the barbarian king. With a sword in one hand and a battle bolt in the other, he ventures through Weirdworld in a desperate attempt to get back home. Yet each bend in the road brings new horrors, new monsters, new awful ways to meet your end. If Arkon is to find his way back to his homeland, he must first survive the Secret Wars! But can he? A lost man in a lost world, Arkon’s quest begins this June in WEIRDWORLD #1![/quote]

[quote]When we first meet Arkon he’s lost and he’s been through hell in his travels across Weirdworld and finally starts to get an idea of the colossal task he’s facing by trying to traverse this world.

Maps will be a big part of that. Any great fantasy story has to have a map at some point. One of the things I always hate about those kinds of stories, though, about hidden mysterious lands is when they do maps that fill in every corner of it. I don’t want to do that. I don’t want to ruin the mystery and the unknown of “Weirdworld.” So you’ll see multiple maps over the course of the story, but none of them will ever be comprehensive as far as I’m concerned. I don’t think there should ever be a comprehensive map of “Weirdworld.” I always want to leave things open for something even weirder and more insane that we haven’t seen before and could be just around the corner.[/quote]
