WEREWOLF BY NIGHT #1 (Taboo, Benjamin Jackendoff / Scot Eaton)

Marvel publiera une nouvelle mini-série Werewolf by Night à partir d’avril…mais ce ne sera pas le lycanthrope Jack Russell créé par Roy Thomas, Gerry Conway et Mike Ploog en 1972.

Dans une histoire qui aura pour cadre l’Arizona, le nouveau Loup-Garou sera un jeune indien, prénommé lui aussi Jack, qui devra faire face à une malédiction familiale tout en essayant de protéger son peuple. D’après la présentation officielle, la mini-série tiendra compte du nouveau statu-quo qui suivra le one-shot Outlawed (et ses conséquences pour les personnages adolescents de l’univers Marvel).

Werewolf by night est écrit par Taboo (des Black Eyed Peas) et Benjamin Jackendoff et dessiné par Scot Eaton.

La couverture du #1 par Mike McKone :

« We’re going through a Native lens because of my Native American heritage, » Taboo said. « I always liked storytelling from a native perspective. Although I was born in the city of Los Angeles, recently I’ve been really connected to the Indian country or to native communities to be able to be a service and help native youth, inspire them, especially when it comes to health and wellness, and arts and music. So we built our partnership knowing that when we create, we create through a native lens. »

« I think Werewolf by Night is such an interesting character, a cool character. His mythology is really dope, and it was such an exciting opportunity to be able to revamp a new mythology and tie it into Native American storytelling, » Jackendoff said. « That’s really what got us excited because they were like, ‹ All right, cool. We can take the Werewolf by Night brand and stay true to the genre of it all, the creatures, the monsters, the big stuff, all that, but tie it into Native American storytelling, into a Native American background and palette, but still make it a fun adventure story about a kid. › »
