ENFIN! enfin je peux parler du projet sur lequel j’ai eu la chance de plancher jusqu’en mars dernier.

Il va sans dire que j’étais assez en retard, mais tout de même dans les temps pour la GROSSE ANNONCE qui a été faite au comic con de San Diego. Quel Honneur !!!

C’est un one shot de 30 pages qui s’inscrit dans la collection des “new avengers origins”. Il a été scénarisé par Roberto Aguire Sacasa. Marko Djurdjevic a offert à la collection un habillage extrêmement classe. Il en a fait 5 couvertures sur 6 et mon chéri a fait la dernière (mais ce n’est pas la mienne) !!

Stéphane Perger me côtoie également dans cette collection puisqu’il illustre avec maestria le récit sur “THE VISION”.


Et puisqu’on en est aux effets d’annonces, je ferai partie d’un merveilleux projet appelé “Womanthologie”, dont je parlerai lors  demon prochain post. Un livre sur l’art du comics par des auteurs féminins, débutants ou confirmés, ou entre les deux dans mon propre cas :); lancé indépendamment PAR DES FEMMES ( ce qui change absolument tout ) et qui sera publié par IDW !!

Sur ce, à cours de points d’exclamations, je vous laisse avec des extraits d’ANT MAN. Vous avez de la chance, ils sont de meilleurs qualité que ce qu’ils ont eu au comic con ^^



[Edit]  voici une interview du scénariste pour les anglophones. Si vous allez au bout, vous verrez que j’ai des raisons d’être hyper flattée!!!

CBR News: Roberto, what made you want to explore the past of Hank Pym and Janet Van Dyne and their connection to the Avengers?

Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa: When Lauren Sankovitch called me about doing a one-shot for “Avengers Origins,” the characters I immediately gravitated toward were Hank and Janet because of their tumultuous relationship, which I find to be both dark and compelling — two of my favorite adjectives. In revisiting some of their earliest adventures, I was surprised by how, well, almost light-hearted they were, and optimistic, and I thought it would be cool to revisit their respective origin stories (which are, in fact, very tragic) — with the knowledge, of course, of where their relationship would ultimately lead.


Since the title of the book is “Avengers Origins: Ant-Man & The Wasp,” is it safe to assume that quite a bit of this story takes place in the past? Whose perspective is this story told from?

Aguirre-Sacasa: This is absolutely set in the past, and though we start with Hank, it is definitely a book about both Ant-Man and Wasp, so we get to Janet very quickly, within the first couple of pages, I believe. It was really important to us that we give equal real estate to both characters — as opposed to, say, folding Janet into Hank’s story — so the choice was made, early on, to make their love affair the spine on which to build the story.


In terms of plot and themes, what is this issue about? Lauren hinted that there would be some crazy action coming in the form of Hank Pym vs. Godzilla the Mouse.

Aguirre-Sacasa: Absolutely. This is a love story, like I said, but it’s also a sci-fi story, first and foremost, and a bit of an homage to “The Incredible Shrinking Man,” with Hank Pym’s first experiences at the micro-level not going exactly as planned. We actually run the gamut from mouse-sized threat to — let’s say giant, Lovecraftian monster-sized threat.
Thematically, it’s about drawing out the parallels between Hank’s origin (tied to the death of his wife) and Janet’s origin (tied to the death of her father); it’s about how these two broken people find each other and figure out, even tentatively, a way to help each other. It’s about their needs to avenge and how they sublimate or enact those needs.


You’re working with Stephanie Hans, best known for her sort of ethereal and almost dream-like painted style. Will the story have that kind of feel to it? Or is Stephanie doing something we haven’t seen her do before?

Aguirre-Sacasa: Truthfully, I wasn’t super-familiar with Stephanie’s work before this issue, but I have to say: I am an instant and lifelong fan! It’s just breath-taking stuff, great stor-telling, some nice weight to everything — what I love most about it is how she can land the quieter, more relationship-y moments as well as the big, operatic, there’s-a-giant-monster-on-that-bridge moments. She’s a genius and a delight. ‘Nuff said.


Any final thoughts you would like to share about “Avengers Origins: Ant-Man & the Wasp?”

Aguirre-Sacasa: Just that it’s always an honor to play with these classic characters, even for a little bit, and I’m excited to get it out there for people to see and (hopefully) enjoy.
