ZERO #1-18 (Ales Kot / Collectif)

Pour sa première série régulière Zero publiée par Image Comics, le scénariste Ales Kot imagine un comics d’espionnage dont l’histoire s’étalera sur la longueur tout en étant composée de récits courts. Chaque numéro sera illustré par un dessinateur différent chaque mois. Michael Walsch, Mateus Santolouco, Morgan Jeske, Tradd Moore, Will Tempest et Tonci Zonjic se chargeront des six premiers numéros de la série, tandis que le coloriste Jordie Bellaire s’occupe de l’unité graphique.

La série chronique la vie de l’agent Edward Zero, véritable machine de guerre qui se retrouve piégé en tentant de récupérer un objet à un bio-terroriste amélioré. Une mission qui l’oblige à mettre en perspective sa loyauté envers ses employeurs.

Ci-dessous, la couverture et la couverture variante du premier numéro par Michael Walsch et Chris Burnham:

SAVING THE WORLD. ONE MURDER AT A TIME.
Edward Zero is the perfect execution machine – a spy who breaks the rules to get things done. When a stolen device appears in the center of a long-running conflict, Zero comes to retrieve it. The problem is, the device is inside a living, breathing, bio-modified terrorist and there’s an entire army after it.[/quote]

[quote=“Ales Kot”]I have anxiety issues. I do my best to jump through them and just paddle through and learn about their roots and disassemble them and it works. It’s hard work sometimes but fuck — it’s so worth it. Sometimes this kind of stuff just comes out of nowhere. The task number one is not to project it out, not to let my own beliefs and hopes and ideas be affected by the fears. Because the thing about anxiety is, I can recognize the anxiety if I realize that it’s always focused on the future. Never on the present. When it comes to the present I can simply figure out what to do about a situation, and I even if I conclude that I should do nothing (doing nothing can be underrated), that’s still a solution if that’s what I have to do. But when anxiety comes? Oh it’s always screaming about the future trying to drive a wedge between me and what I want.

I am beginning to think that anxiety is an evolutionary thing. It helps me because living with it is not really living, so I always want to deal with it and understand it and let it go. Face my fear and emerge stronger.[/quote]

[quote] “ZERO” and TV — developments yes, and I am feeling elated about them. Do I want to talk about them more? Not at the present time, but I’ll gladly admit I’m answering this question while in Silver Lake, Los Angeles for a variety of reasons.

The comic and the show — I have no interest in doing the same thing twice. Would there be similarities? Yes. Would there be differences? Yes.

Interest in fungi — my parents used to take me to the woods. We would look for mushrooms, bring them back home, put them into scrambled eggs and such. Nothing quite like fresh mushrooms. Later on I begin learning about mushrooms as complex organisms. Did you know that mushrooms are, according to our current science, closer to animals than to plants? And we don’t know what their biodiversity is like. The estimates are 1-5 million species. And these are just estimates based on our current understanding, which is limited.

Where are mushrooms? Mushrooms are everywhere. Look at the walls around you. Look at the ground. How many different types of fungi does your body currently contain? And speaking of, how do our bodies operate? How many organisms are operating us while we assume that we are operating “ourselves” ?

Mushrooms and fascination come easy. Look at the mushroom death suit. Consider that fungi recycle plants and convert them into soil, and plenty other ways they interact with the environment. What would this Earth look like without them? Consider the ancient practices of using mushrooms as spiritual helpers. Some of the oldest living mushroom colonies are the circles around Stonehenge. Could this have anything to do with what “ZERO” is about, considering “ZERO” is set (mostly) in the United Kingdom?

I mean: how is all of the above applicable for SF? It just is. Everything is SF. We live in a world that is effectively SF. This world is a speculative fiction world — we constantly create and discard fictions. Everything is permitted. Perhaps we’re finally realizing that the membrane between fantasy and reality can be extremely thin and sometimes perhaps non-existent. How is this going to change our lives, our society, our universe? These things are connected. The internal changes the external. The micro changes the macro. You are important. Everyone is.[/quote]
