WILLIAM GIBSON'S ALIEN 3 #1-2 (William Gibson, Johnnie Christmas)


(Le Doc) #1

Dark Horse publiera à partir de novembre la mini-série William Gibson’s Alien 3, l’adaptation en bande dessinée du scénario original du troisième volet de la saga Alien par l’un des leaders du mouvement cyberpunk.

Le développement de ce qui allait devenir Alien 3 fut long et chaotique et plusieurs scénaristes s’y sont cassés les dents. William Gibson fut le premier : son scénario, centré sur les personnages de Hicks et Bishop (car Sigourney Weaver n’était pas encore sûre de vouloir reprendre le rôle de Ripley), n’a pas convaincu le studio et Gibson quitta alors le projet suite aux demandes de réécritures.

La vision de Wililam Gibson pour Alien 3 sera transposée en bande dessinée par Johnnie Christmas (Sheltered, Angel Catbird…).

Le numéro 1 sortira le 7 novembre.

After the deadly events of the film Aliens, the spaceship Sulaco carrying the sleeping bodies of Ripley, Hicks, Newt, and Bishop is intercepted by the Union of Progressive Peoples. What the UPP forces don’t expect is another deadly passenger that is about to unleash chaos between two governmental titans intent on developing the ultimate Cold War weapon of mass destruction.

Ah je savais pas que Gibson s’était frotté à l’exercice. Étonnant.

With the Sulaco containing more than meets the eye, the U.P.P. team looks to find out what happened to Ripley, Bishop, and company. At the same time, the group on the Rodina have discovered that one of their own-Kurtz-may be infected on Anchorpoint, and uses the captured Bishop as a ransoming piece for Kurtz’s return, who the Rodina crew view as a potential weapon.
