“Wolf est un récit de crime noir horrifique et fantastique se déroulant dans le Los Angeles d’aujourd’hui.”
Le scénariste Ales Kot (Bucky Barnes: The Winter Soldier, Material, The Surface) lancera en juillet la nouvelle série Wolf chez Image Comics avec le dessinateur Matt Taylor. La série suit le détective privée Antoine Wolf; un détective privé très spécial puisqu’il peut converser avec la population occulte qui envahit les rues de la ville le soir venu.
[quote]America is built on crime. Crime’s always been prominent, and the crime genre has been as well, it’s just that for a long time we didn’t call certain stories by that name. What else is the Native American genocide? What else is slavery? I have to reiterate this point: America is built on crime.
The inspiration for ‘Wolf’ was partly a desire for an exploration of the under-explored. America’s rampant racism. The prison-industrial complex, which is at its core. On a state/city inspiration level, California, Los Angeles, and their own strange ways. I could chart my inspirations and they would lead in many different directions: my years spent in Los Angeles, my semi-regular engagement with things we cannot see (after all, we do see only 3% of the electromagnetic spectrum, and there are ways to amp that number a bit), my reading of Clive Barker’s fiction at a tender age of nine or ten, my daily facing of the racial abuse many of our fellow citizens are facing, diving into weird fiction by the likes of Lovecraft and Barron, being lost on the US-Mexican border, encountering ghosts and strange hieroglyphics in a Prague apartment, having visions of things that happened decades ago and only finding out they really happened years later, investigating, paying attention, wanting to have an output for all the weird in me. Hannibal and the first season of True Detective I find particularly inspiring, too – there’s connective tissue there.[/quote]
