WONDER WOMAN : EARTH ONE vol. 1 à 3 (Morrison / Paquette)

L’album Wonder Woman: Earth One sortira finalement le 6 avril 2016. Voici la couverture:

[quote]From the masterful minds of Grant Morrison (FINAL CRISIS, THE MULTIVERSITY) and Yanick Paquette (SWAMP THING, BATMAN, INC.) comes the most provocative origin of Wonder Woman you’ve ever seen — a wholly unique retelling that still honors her origins.

For millennia, the Amazons of Paradise Island have created a thriving society away from the blight of man. One resident, however, is not satisfied with this secluded life — Diana, Princess of the Amazons, knows there is more in this world and wants to explore, only to be frustrated by her protective mother, Hippolyta. Diana finds her escape when Air Force pilot Steve Trevor, the first man she has ever seen, crashes onto their shores. With his life hanging in the balance, Diana ventures into the long forbidden world of men. The Amazons chase after her and bring her back to Paradise Island in chains to face trial for breaking their oldest law…staying separated from the world that wronged them.

Thought provoking yet reverent, thoroughly modern but still timeless, the power and courage of Paradise Island’s greatest champion — Wonder Woman — is introduced in this new addition to DC’s New York Times best selling Earth One original graphic novel series.[/quote]

avec le fétiche bondage propre au créateur selon morrison

Une chroniqueuse qui n’a absolument pas appréciée Wonder Woman : Earth One (il faut dire qu’elle n’a pas saisi l’inspiration : “This whole thing looks like a porn rape fantasy. It’s gross! Stop! Stop portraying women being chained up in some skeevy pose. It makes me cringe when I see this sort of thing, and I sincerely doubt I’m the only one. Rape happens, and I’m all for realistically adding it into a story. What I’mnot for, is half naked women weeping prettily while they arch and writhe. If you’re going to show sexual assault, show it like the ugly ASSAULT that it is.”) a diffusée quelques images supplémentaires de l’album :

Et quelle est donc cette inspiration ?

C’est certain que les images montrées sont éloquentes.

La Wonder Woman d’origine, l’héroïne enchainée et “maitresse de l’évasion” mise en scène par le couple de psychologues William Moulton Marston et Elizabeth Holloway Marston ; couple qui semblait d’ailleurs très ouvert sur la question puisqu’il partageait sa couche avec l’étudiante Olive Byrne (nièce de l’activiste Margaret Sanger pour la petite histoire).

[quote]"*Les femmes marchaient enchainées, comme dans un spectacle politique, pour l’expression de cette idée : sans le droit de vote, la femme était l’esclave de l’homme. Le bondage était le motif iconographique central du suffrage, des féministes et du mouvement sur le contrôle des naissances.

En ayant cela à l’esprit, le bondage présenté dans ‘Wonder Woman’ semble bien plus compliqué que ce qu’il parait.*" - Margaret Sanger[/quote]


Oui… Enfin, passée la citation, les auteurs se font visiblement plaisir.
Pas impressionné.

Steve Trevor est le dernier héros en date a céder aux sirènes de la diversité ethnique. Grant Morrison explique :

[quote=“Morrison”]We just wanted more representation in the book generally.

But in terms of Steve, it’s also — again, there are a lot of characters who play opposite Diana, and we wanted Steve to be very physically opposite to her. Originally, Steve Trevor played the kind of feminine role in the Wonder Woman stories. He always seemed kind of boring next to Wonder Woman and all the girls in the stories. And I find it really hard to believe she would have any interest in this man at all beyond the scientific. So I found it much more interesting to have a man who seems potentially much stronger than that original slightly milk-softish Steve Trevor from the original. So I just updated him and made him a much stronger looking dude.

You see him as he’s coming up out of the water, when Diana first sees him, and the parachute silks resemble the shell — we were kind of saying, yeah, this guy’s in the feminine role, but think again. This isn’t the Steve Trevor you’re familiar with.

And he’s a much more ambiguous figure in the book. You know, she’s not a love interest, necessarily. And you don’t even know if his intentions are absolutely honorable in the book. So we wanted to make him much more of a complex character that Diana could play off of, rather than the banal figure I felt Trevor was originally.[/quote]



[quote]Honestly, the original story made it clear these women had been living together on an island for three thousand years. I don’t think when they gave up men, they gave up sex. It was always there. All we’ve done is mention it in the text. I’ve said it in a couple other interviews, I’ve read recently there’s a huge percentage of young people in the west that identify as non-heterosexual. So I don’t think that aspect of a Wonder Woman story is shocking anymore.

As for the bondage, it comes from the original creator of Wonder Woman, William Moulton Marston. He had this idea that Wonder Woman was superior to men. If we all agreed to this philosophy of loving submission, where we would submit to the will of women and be told what to do, it’d make a better world. Again, we took that aspect of the original story, which seems very different from all the other portrayals and made it part of the engine of this story. It’s all about chains, rocks, leashes, truth and lies, and dominance and submission.[/quote]


Les nazis envahissent Paradise Island dans le second volume de Wonder Woman : Earth One, que Grant Morrison a comparé à “L’Empire contre-attaque” (ce qui implique que l’écossais chauve et son dessinateur Yannick Paquette travaillent sur une trilogie).

Voici quelques extraits dévoilés au San Diego Comic Con :

Grant Morrison a également révélé qu’il prépare avec Chris Burnham un Arkham Asylum 2, qui prendra place dans le futur de Batman #666, avec un Damian Wayne adulte.

Volume 2 annoncé pour le 03 octobre dans DC Previews #3 !

The highly anticipated sequel to the #1 New York Times best-selling original graphic novel is here in Wonder Woman: Earth One Vol. 2 , from the acclaimed creative team of Grant Morrison and Yanick Paquette!

For years Diana of Paradise Island yearned to leave behind the only home she knew for adventures that lay beyond its shores. Now, after a fateful meeting with Air Force pilot Steve Trevor, the Amazon Warrior finds herself in Man’s World. And she is ready for anything that it may throw at her. But is the world ready for Wonder Woman? An American government, fraught with dissension and conflicts foreign to Diana, have deemed her a danger to society. How will Wonder Woman carry out her mission of peace and love in a world that can’t get out of its own way? That is, unless there are more insidious forces at play… Continuing the tradition of critically acclaimed Earth One tales that challenge the status quo of the comics industry, Wonder Woman: Earth One Vol. 2 is Grant Morrison’s latest genre-rocking salvo. With illustrations from Yanick Paquette, this original graphic novel is a classic in the making.
