WORLD'S FINEST COMICS #1-2 (Levitz/Fern,Rubinstein,wheeler)

Dernière semaine consacrée à Convergence avec l’annonce de pas moins de 10 nouveaux diptyques dont les premiers numéros paraitront pendant la dernière semaine d’avril.

Le scénariste (et ancien rédacteur en chef) Paul Levitz profite de la Convergence pour assembler quelques artistes hétéroclites - Jim Fern, Joe Rubinstein et Shannon Wheeler - autour du projet “méta” World’s Finest Comics.
Il racontera, en deux temps, le combat entre les Sept Soldats de la Victoire contre les forces de Qward, et la vie du dessinateur de comics Scribbly Jibbet qui raconte leurs aventures.

J’aime l’idée !
À quelques exceptions près, il y a pas mal de choses intéressantes dans ces 40 mini-séries. Et les équipes artistiques ont réservé de chouettes surprises.
Ouais, je lis peu de séries DC actuelles, mais cette Convergence m’intrigue vraiment beaucoup !

La vache ! Scribbly, c’est le personnage inventé et dessiné par Sheldon Mayer dans les années 1940, non ? Vache de retour, en l’occurrence ?

Jim

Carrément ! Tu fais bien de le souligner, je ne connaissais pas le perso et je viens de faire une petite recherche (je vois qu’il est de la même famille que Maxine Hunkel). Les scénaristes utilisent vraiment le concept de la Convergence pour explorer l’histoire du DC Universe. Très intéressant, tout ça !

[quote]In a sense, what appealed to me in this story was that it was pretty much a clean slate in the world of “Convergence.” Really, what I did with the story was make it rewarding for me because of who the narrator is. I built this around Scribbly Jibbet, whose name you will probably not remember. I guess he’s the only character in the DC Universe who preceeds DC. Shelly Mayer created Scribbly originally, as a boy. His Scribbly stories – in the view of Art Spiegelman, who is very knowledgeable on such – is arguably the first autobiographical example of a cartoonist writing about a cartoonist in America. Shelly created it at first for Dell, but then he brought it to DC when he became the first editor of “All-American Comics.” He did a run in that comic and then did about 15 issues of Scribbly’s own comic.

They were very much period pieces of a young cartoonist in New York breaking in – stories of his family and all that. It’s the place where the original Red Tornado character comes from. She was a supporting character in that comic. And then Shelly didn’t touch Scribbly for a couple of decades – he had one cameo of the character showing up in an issue of “Sugar & Spike” a generation later. I thought, “If ‘Convergence’ is putting everything together, let’s take the earliest piece we’ve got.” So Scribbly becomes the editorial cartoonist for a Metropolis paper, and you get his view of what’s happening with the Seven Soldiers, what’s happening with all of “Convergence” and kind of what it means to be a hero, or a part of the DC Universe, in his eyes.[/quote]
