YONDU #1 (Zac Thompson, Lonnie Nadler / John McCrea)

Les scénaristes Zac Thompson et Lonnie Nadler (Cable, Age of X-Man…) promettent d’explorer les recoins les plus sordides de l’univers cosmique Marvel avec leur nouvelle série centrée sur les aventures de Yondu le Ravager.

La partie graphique de ce titre dont la publication débutera en novembre a été confiée à John McCrea (Hitman).

Yondu, lone Ravager and all-around scoundrel is about to hit the biggest pay day of his life when he stumbles upon a dangerous new weapon! But when this artefact turns out to be deadlier than he bargained for, will the reward outweigh the risk as Yondu finds himself targeted by a mysterious mercenary? Plus, when an unexpected visitor from the future turns up to stop Yondu, it begs the question: exactly how bad did he screw up?! Find out in this all-new series from ZAC THOMPSON and LONNIE NADLER (AGE OF X-MAN, GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY ANNUAL) and JOHN MCCREA (Dead Eyes)!

Zac Thompson :

Yondu is the opportunity to do something completely different for Lonnie and myself. We’re giving readers a street-level space book within the cosmic Marvel Universe. Yondu is filled with jokes on every page. We’ve had an absolute blast writing the series and have laughed until we’re in tears every time we come up with a new scene. However, we wanted to bring a depth to Yondu that readers will appreciate. There’s a lot in this book that’s completely new. New planets, new reveals, new characters, and new adventures. Yondu is carving out a brand new pocket of Marvel cosmic and he’s leaving a trail of destruction wherever he goes.

John McCrea is a dream collaborator. He’s brought so much insane detail to Yondu’s world that readers will be able to pour over every page for hidden jokes, subtle details, and masterful character work. John’s resume boasts some of the best books in the history of comics but this might just be the best work he’s ever turned out. I can’t wait for people to see what he’s cooking up

Lonnie Nadler :

Zac and I really wanted to stretch the limits of who we are as creators with Yondu, so we’re pushing ourselves to completely new places, which I think will take a lot of readers by surprise. We’re mostly known for writing horror stories, but this book is a full-on comedy crime book with neo Western elements. It’s unlike anything we’ve tackled before.

Working with John McCrea has been completely surreal. We are such big fans of his work on books like Hitman and The Boys, and getting to collaborate with a veteran like John is a pipe dream realized. He’s augmenting our story on every single page.

John McCrea :

Yondu is a space adventure exploring the seedy underbelly of the Marvel cosmic universe. Me, Zac and Lonnie are showing you the space toilets, cosmic sewers and galaxies’ gangsters in a rip-roaring tale across time and space.

Déjà graphiquement c’est chouette.

Mais, si loin après le Vol 2 des Gardiens et si loin avant le Vol 3, ça sort un peu de nulle part.

Oh yes, McCrea !

Marvel signe pas mal McCrea ces temps ci ça fait plaisir
