Yann bekijkt DC’s “Zero Month” Solicits

Enkele dagen geleden heeft DC Comics de solicitations voor september 2012 vrijgegeven. Dan krijgen we, zoals we hier al berichtten, 55 (Ja, ik heb ze geteld! Enfin, mijn pc heeft de plaatjes geteld, maar dat komt op hetzelfde neer) Zero Issues, comics met het nummer 0 die wat gaten in het nieuwe DC-universum (DCnU) moeten opvullen. Wij zetten ze even op een rijtje.

Er zitten een paar serieuze miskleunen tussen de Zero Issues, die voor mij de aanleiding waren om de solicits eens volledig door te nemen. Laten we dus maar beginnen met…

Catwoman #0

(Klik om te vergroten)

Written by JUDD WINICK

Cover by GUILLEM MARCH
On sale SEPTEMBER 19 • 32 pg, FC, $2.99 US • RATED T+

  •  The secret origin of Selina Kyle!
  • Major shocks are in store for Catwoman this year – and this is just the beginning!

Wat is dit? Lieve hemel, wat is dit?! Je hebt al wat fantasie nodig om hier nog een anatomisch correcte vrouw te herkennen…

Naar het schijnt is Catwoman geen slechte reeks. Kan zijn. Maar zolang DC met dit soort covers afkomt, zolang deze tekenaar aan de reeks werkt, koop ik ze niet. Het interesseert hen blijkbaar niet om me hier een interessant personage te presenteren. (Selina Kyle is een “sterke vrouw”? Waar moet je dat als lezer uit afleiden?)

Nee, wat ze mij willen verkopen staat front and center: tetten en een kont. Toevallig aanhangsels van een vrouw die in de vreemdste bochten gewrongen is om ze aan mij te kunnen presenteren. Ik ben er ook vrij zeker van dat borsten en billen niet zo werken. Een nul op biologie. Kan iemand ook maar één (1!) superheld van mannelijke kunne noemen die zo geportretteerd zou worden op een cover? Natuurlijk niet. Laten we het dan noemen wat het is: ongegeneerd seksisme.

En kom me alsjeblieft niet af met het excuus dat sexy past bij het personage. Dat schijnt de complete woordenschat te zijn als het over Catwoman gaat: “Sexy, sexy, sexy, sexy… Hadden we al gezegd dat ze sexy is? Want dat is ze. Sexy, dus. Jawel!”

Ik ken het personage. Wat meer is: ik weet wat sexy is (althans, ik weet wat ik sexy vind). Heel wat tekenaars weten wat sexy is. Guillem March? Die heeft er kennelijk geen benul van. Dit is niet sexy. Dit is een seksobject. Een slecht getekend seksobject bovendien. Het helpt niet dat March maar één gezicht kan tekenen. Of hij kan het wel, maar doet hij het gewoon niet omdat hij te druk bezig is met het detailleren van de T&A. Ach, wat maakt het eigenlijk uit: het eindresultaat is hetzelfde. Als we commentaar geven op Liefeld, kunnen we dit ook niet laten passeren.

Oh ja, en het argument “Sex sells”? De verkoopcijfers spreken dat tegen. En als ze mikken op kwijlende pubers om dit te kopen, dan kunnen ze mij missen. DC, hier is een idee, gratis en voor niks: er komt binnenkort een film uit waarin dit personage zal opduiken. Misschien waren jullie het even vergeten. ‘t Is een klein projectje met als titel The Dark Knight Rises. Doet dat een belletje rinkelen? Waarom doen jullie daar niks mee?

Green Lantern #0

On sale SEPTEMBER 5 • 32 pg, FC, $2.99 US • RATED T
Combo pack edition: $3.99 US

  • PROLOGUE TO THE THIRD ARMY!
  • The introduction and origin of a surprising new Green Lantern!
  • Where are Hal Jordan and Sinestro?

Mijn eerste reactie was (en ik citeer): “Ik snap de mop niet.” En toen begon het me te dagen dat dit een echte cover is…

Wat? Nee, kom nu… Wat?

“Black Arab Gangsta Lantern”, is dat wat we daarvan moeten maken? Oh ja, in het kader van de strijd voor meer diversiteit bij DC, zeker?

En dan moet je weten dat het Amerikaanse publiek eigenlijk maar twee Lanterns echt kent: de blanke Hal Jordan (dankzij de film) en de zwarte John Stewart (dankzij de animatieseries Justice League en Justice League Unlimited). Stel je voor dat zo iemand iets van Zero Month gehoord heeft en besluit om eens een comicshop binnen te stappen. En dan krijgt hij of zij dit voor de neus… Wat moet je daar dan van denken?

Ongeacht de inhoud van deze comic, is dit een ongelooflijk dwaze cover.

Wat moet iemand die het krachtigste wapen in het universum aan zijn middelvinger heeft in godsnaam met een pistool?

Earth-2 #0

Cover by IVAN REIS and JOE PRADO

On sale SEPTEMBER 5 • 32 pg, FC, $2.99 US • RATED T

  • It’s the tragic origin of Earth 2’s greatest villain!
  • Don’t miss Superman, Batman and Wonder Woman in action on Earth 2!

Oh, ik zal ‘m wel kopen, maar deze comic illustreert perfect wat er mis is met het hele concept van “#0’s”. Het eerste nummer van Earth-2 bestond uit een boel oorlogsscènes zonder veel context, en kon mij dan ook niet echt boeien. Nochtans had James Robinson verteld dat Batman, Superman en Wonder Woman een grote rol zouden spelen in de reeks, en hadden hun kostuums een nieuw ontwerp gekregen. Dat wordt dan binnenkort, maanden na het begin van de reeks, in een #0 gestopt.

Dit had nummer 1 moeten zijn, zo eenvoudig is dat. Maar goed, over naar de rest van de solicits.

Aanraders?

DC schiet een paar serieuze kemels, maar deze zal ik wel in huis halen:

  • Batgirl #0 – We wisten al een tijdje dat dit er zat aan te komen. De vraag is alweer waarom dit in een #0 moest gegoten worden in plaats van deze gebeurtenissen op een natuurlijke manier te onthullen in de reeks, maar goed… lezen zal ik het toch.
  • Batman #0 – Als je de plek van Batman in het DCnU wil kennen, kan je moeilijk anders. Daarbij Snyder + Capullo = nog altijd een no-brainer.
  • Batman & Robin #0 – De eerste verhaallijn werd sterker en sterker naarmate ze vorderde, dus ik ben benieuwd naar de confrontatie van Damian met Thalia.
  • Batman Incorporated #0 – Batman Inc. is cool. Knight & Squire zijn cool. Meer moet dat niet zijn.
  • Batwing #0 – Ik heb Batwing tot nu toe niet gelezen, want het lijstje werd me wat te lang. Maar misschien kan dit #0 me op andere gedachten brengen. Ik hoop op een brugje met de gebeurtenissen uit het eerste volume van Batman Incorporated.
  • Batwoman #0 – Hadden we al geen #0 gekregen van Batwoman? En hadden we al niet gelezen hoe ze haar lustige leventje achter zich liet in Elegy? Deze klinkt een beetje overbodig. Vooruit dan maar…
  • Birds of Prey #0 – Romano Molenaar! En deze kan ik dan mooi tegelijk met de eerste trade lezen.
  • Nightwing #0 – Omdat ik benieuwd ben naar de origine van Nightwing in het DCnU.
  • Justice League Dark #0 – Jeff Lemire wijdt een nummer aan John Constantine, Hellblazer. Kan niet slecht zijn.
  • Sword of Sorcery #0 – Joshua Middleton kan mij met deze cover wel verleiden… Demon Knights heb ik niet lang volgehouden, maar ik wil graag nog eens een fantasytitel uitproberen.
  • Wonder Woman #0 – En als je nu dacht dat deze ging ontbreken, dan ken je mij nog niet!

Wie zich afvraagt waar Animal Man, Swamp Thing, Action Comics en de obligate Justice League gebleven zijn: die lees ik in trade!

 

Helemaal mee eens? Of juist helemaal niet? We zijn benieuwd naar jouw mening. Laat je commentaar achter onderaan!
