Description

Wintersea, page 39.

Une nouvelle ère glacière a frappé la terre. Et c'est dans ce "Mad Max" polaire que Chuck Dixon et Jorge Zaffino nous content les errances de Scully.

Avec un encrage qui le place au rang des Eisner, Kubert, et Breccia, Jorge Zaffino livre ici une planche bercée de solitude. Qu'il s'agisse du visage de la deuxième case, de la masse du corps dans la case centrale ou des empreintes dans la neige de la dernière case, je reste bluffé par les cadrages et les différentes techniques d'encrage utilisées, choisies avec pertinence pour chaque situation.

"Wintersea" est la suite de "Winterworld", par les mêmes auteurs. Publié par Marvel en 2010 et en 2013 par Delcourt qui réunit les deux récits en un seul volume.

About Jorge Zaffino

In the mid-1980s, Zaffino made a trip to the U.S. with Ricardo Villagran, who was working for Comico at the time. On that trip, Zaffino met comics writer Chuck Dixon, and together they produced Winter World, a three part series for Eclipse. They continued to collaborate on comics, producing the seminal Punisher graphic novels Kingdom Gone and Assassin's Guild, and a Savage Sword of Conan story titled The Horned God. During this time, Zaffino worked regularly with comics writer Dan Chichester on various comics, including Critical Mass, and Terror Inc.. He did relatively little work in the U.S. comics industry, where he is mostly known for his art in Punisher, Clive Barker's Hellraiser and The 'Nam for Marvel Comics. Zaffino’s last work in the US was a story written by Dixon for the 1996 Batman Black and White mini series. He continued working for the Argentine comic market, but focused on his work as a painter. A follow up to Winter World called Winter Sea was entirely written and drawn for Marvel Comics, but was never published due to changes of Marvel's policy on creator-owned books at the time. A third chapter of the Winter World saga was also planned, titled Winter War. In January 2010, a hardcover edition containing Winter World and Winter Sea was published through IDW Publishing.

Matthias Zaffino => Great! Inspiration for so many including SGM. I would compare him more with Toppi then with Kubert or Eisner and as he passed away to early his footprint in comic history is limited but what a fantastic artist he was! Always incredible inks and great page composition!
