Rob Liefeld assume TRÊS títulos da DC; No Inferno, o Diabo gargalha.


A DC anunciou ontem, 13/01/2012 (porra, tinha que ser numa sexta-feira treze mesmo…) que Ele, O Senhor Músculos de Batata, Aquele que Desenha Torto por Linhas Retas, vai assumir não um, não dois, mas TRÊS títulos do rebootão a partir de maio. As revistas a serem vítimadas serão:

  • DEATHSTROKE: Já estava previsto após o cancelamento de HAWK & DOVE que Liefeld iria para esse título assumir o roteiro de Kyle Higgins, mas a novidade é que ele também irá fazer os desenhos com seu traço *peculiar*, substituindo Joe Bennet.
  • THE SAVAGE HAWKMAN: Substituindo o roteitista Tony daniel, e;
  • GRIFTER: No lugar de Nathan Edmonson.

Eis o press release do blog oficial da DC The Source, com partes em destaque pelo Comics Alliance que dizem muito, sem falar nada:

This May, writer/artist Rob Liefeld will take on an expanded role in DC COMICS-THE NEW 52. He will be joining three titles – DEATHSTROKE, GRIFTER and THE SAVAGE HAWKMAN – beginning with their ninth issues.

One of the key artists who helped to the define a generation of comic books, Liefeld is perhaps best known for helping to found Image Comics – along with Jim Lee, Todd McFarlane, Erik Larsen, Whilce Portacio, Jim Valentino and Marc Silvestri. Most recently, he was the writer and artist for HAWK AND DOVE in DC COMICS-THE NEW 52.

"It's great to have Rob contributing to DC COMICS-THE NEW 52 in such a major way," said Eddie Berganza, DC Entertainment Executive Editor. "Rob's always been seen as edgy, both within the comic book industry and by his fans. That's a great vibe to bring to these particular books. We really want to push boundaries, and Rob's the guy to do it."

Liefeld will be writing and illustrating DEATHSTROKE, a perfect pairing of the edgy industry bad boy and the baddest bounty hunter on Earth. Raising the ante on the action for Slade Wilson, Liefeld kicks off his run in issue 9 by pitting Wilson against fan-favorite mercenary Lobo – who will be making his first appearance in DC COMICS-THE NEW 52. But Lobo is just the beginning, and Liefeld shared some of his plans for the series.

"Deathstroke is tasked with the greatest challenge of his life, taking on the most dangerous prey in the galaxy…LOBO!" said Liefeld. "The galactic criminal has escaped from his terrestrial prison where he has been housed for years. He is free and ready to settle the score! And what is the secret of the OMEGAs and what role will they play in the deadly showdown?"

Liefeld will be plotting THE SAVAGE HAWKMAN, catapulting the story into the intergalactic arena and pitting the Thanagarian warrior against alien foes in extreme gladiatorial combat. HAWKMAN fans can look forward to a cosmic mystery with plenty of action. Liefeld shared a hint of what's to come.

"He wields the powerful Nth metal and, as Carter Hall is about to find out, it is a weapon coveted by the deadliest players in a game that plays across the ages," said Liefeld. "New enemies and allies emerge as Carter Hall travels across the globe in pursuit of the answers to his heritage and the Thanagarian connection."

Liefeld will also be plotting GRIFTER. He shared his plans to tighten the screws on Cole Cash, expanding on the cosmic consequences of his battle against the Daemonites. Liefeld even hinted at the possible inclusion of a fan-favorite WildStorm character, newly re-imagined and re-introduced as part of DC COMICS-THE NEW 52.

"Grifter has been targeted for extermination! The time is now for Grifter to embrace his destiny and lead the insurgence against the impending Daemonite threat," said Liefeld. "He has spent his life running from his true destiny, but he must embrace his role in the coming conflict or worlds will fall. Familiar faces emerge warning Grifter that nothing can prepare him for what is coming. His true destiny is revealed and a reluctant hero emerges to lead a strike force of human allies that will deliver the ultimate DEATHBLOW to the impending invasion."

Liefeld will be joining DEATHSTROKE, GRIFTER and THE SAVAGE HAWKMAN with their ninth issues is May, but we've got a first look at the cover to DEATHSTROKE #9 right here on THE SOURCE.

Eu não tenho palavras. Sério.

Pior é que os títulos assumidos JÁ NÃO SÃO LÁ ESSAS COISAS e agora, ainda contratam o mais sinistro dos coveiros para ajudar a enterrar?

Quem aposta quais os próximos títulos a serem cancelados?
