Product Description

" En relisant l'œuvre maintenant, il est clair que Black Orchid (tout comme le Daredevil et Darrk Knight de Frank Miller ou le Miracleman, Swamp Thing et Watchmen d'Alan Moore) est un de ces livres qui a contribué à scinder l'histoire de la bande dessinée moderne en deux, et à manifester, au sein de son univers, l'essor d'une bravoure et d'une ambition nouvelle. Dans une certaine mesure, Black Orchid tente d'aller plus loin dans cette percée collégiale en faisant constater que, si hardies, brillantes et branchées que soient les nouvelles bandes dessinées, la plupart d'entre elles finissent encore par recourir aux mêmes coutumes narratives et moralistes tant rebattues, selon lesquelles des hommes violents sauvent le monde par des options radicales et un courage brutal. Or, dans ce livre, il se produit quelque chose de différent. Ce qui fait de Black Orchid un roman graphique à part. C'est un acte d'imagination et d'espoir qui veut porter, une forme littéraire par trop sous-évaluée, jusque dans des sphères où elle ne s'est jamais jusqu'ici aventurée. " Extrait de la préface par Mikal Gilmore.
