HG Wells adapté en roman graphique


Le site Pr.com relaie l'information suivante : la nouvelle The Chronic Argonauts (Les Argonautes à la Conquête du Temps), écrite en 1888 par H.G. Wells, sera adaptée en un roman graphique éponyme par Jason Quinn, Russ Leach,Tyler Smith et Charles Pritchett, prévu pour fin 2011.

En voici le résumé (en langue anglaise), ainsi que la couverture :

“The Chronic Argonauts” begins with the arrival of the mysterious Dr. Moses Nebogipfel to a small Welsh town. The apprehensions of the simple rural folk eventually cause them to storm the inventor's workshop in an effort to avenge perceived witchery. Nebogipfel escapes with one other person, the sympathetic Reverend Elijah Ulysses Cook, in what is later revealed to be a time machine. After having been missing for three weeks, Reverend Cook returns, aged many years older. In recounting his experience, he states that he traveled with Dr. Nebogipfel to the years 4003 and 17901, but does not give any details beyond that. “The story ends there. I think that Wells intended to tell those tales at a later time, but abandoned Cook and Nebogipfel to write The Time Machine,” stated New Baby Publisher, Eric Mullarky, “Over 120 years later, we are finally filling in the gaps and telling the whole story of Nebogipfel and Cook.”
