Terry Moore est un auteur de comics américain qui travaille principalement en tant qu'indépendant (« Abstract Studio » est sa propre maison d'édition) mais qui de temps à autres peut aussi travailler pour Marvel, DC ou autres maisons. Sa création la plus connue est probablement `Strangers In Paradise'. `Echo' appartient à la partie indépendante de son oeuvre et a fait l'objet d'une parution en comics shop aux USA en 30 fascicules entre mars 2008 et juin 2011. Cet ouvrage regroupe l'ensemble de l'histoire, les couvertures et quelques sketches. L'histoire, prenante, mêle science et mythes, super-pouvoirs et espionnage, geeks et bikers, pureté et manipulation, amour et amitié, mort et résurrection etc. L'héroïne principale, Julie, reçoit une pluie de billes métalliques sur le corps alors qu'elle prenait des photographies en pleine nature. Ces billes s'amalgament sur son corps en un plastron inamovible, parmi d'autres propriétés étonnantes. Pas vraiment ce qu'attendait cette jeune femme orpheline, en instance de divorce et qui doit s'occuper de sa soeur qui a perdu la raison. Traques, fuites, courses-poursuites et révélations diverses sont au rendez-vous du reste de l'histoire qui voit Julie et ses alliés tenter d'empêcher la fin du monde. Le story-telling est plutôt solide ainsi que la caractérisation des principaux personnages. En noir et blanc (plus gris tramé), à défaut d'être génial, le dessin réaliste est élégant et efficace. Au total, un bon ouvrage « indé ».

HASH(0x95303864) étoiles sur 5 Worthy successor to Strangers in Paradise 26 septembre 2011
Par Robert Frost - Publié sur Amazon.com

Echo was a 30 issue series, written and drawn by Terry Moore, that started in March 2008. The collected edition was released in August, 2011.

Julie Martin, a photographer with a lot of personal problems, is taking some nature pictures when a large explosion occurs above her. Small drops of a strange substance rain down on her, changing her and her life and dwarfing her initial problems. The pelts form a metallic plate covering portions of her body. She develops powerful abilities. Julie wasn't the only person affected, though. A homeless man also is impacted by the strange debris. He becomes a threat and has a rather bizarre story of his own.

The debris is the result of an experiment conducted by HeNRI (Heitzer Nuclear Research Institute), a private corporation with defense contracts. HeNRI wants their property back and their secrets to remain secrets, so they hire a specialist to hunt Julie down. Julie is on the run. She received aide from a Park Ranger that also witnessed the explosion. A connection between the explosion and the park ranger is revealed, as the story progresses.

Terry Moore is best known for his long running series, Strangers in Paradise. Echo shows that he is no one trick pony. It's a very different style of story, but just as well told. Where SIP was a character driven book with a strong supporting story, Echo is a story driven book with strong characters. It's also a shift in genre. Echo is a science fiction story, carrying the well established theme of fear of mankind producing technology that it isn't ready to handle. Each chapter of the book begins with a quote reflecting that theme, such as Einstein's "Technological progress is like an axe in the hands of a pathological criminal."

As with Strangers in Paradise, it's obvious that Moore doesn't start with a completed and fully defined story planned. The story evolves as he tells it. The result is that the story keeps the reader on their toes. Unexpected twists and new ideas pop up as the story progresses. Although this is clearly a different story that Strangers, there is a connection revealed that will bring a smile to fans.

The art is beautiful, throughout the book. Moore is truly a master of depicting facial expressions and body language with just a few ink lines. Every character looks like a real person. In fact, I'm convinced that Moore based the character of biker Dan Backer off of a man I used to work with (it's possible, they're both in Houston). There's been some controversy on the internet, lately, over concerns with how women are often depicted in comics. Moore is the person to look to to see how to do it right. His female characters are strong, sexy but never exploited, and fully defined emotional beings.

According to Variety, producer Lloyd Levin has purchased the film rights to Echo. Levin was a producer on Watchmen, Hellboy, and United 93. Let's hope it not only gets made, but remains true to the source.

Terry Moore began Echo as an independent comic series in 2008, and over the course of 30 issues and three years, he created what is one of the best sci-fi comics of all time, a truly human, utterly fascinating, action-packed adventure. It's a brilliant look at scientific exploration combined with human ambition (and all the foibles that contains).

It begins with a young scientist named Annie field-testing a highly classified new flying battle suit she has helped create. It would be a powerful weapon for the United States, and a highly profitable piece of machinery as well, but unfortunately, Annie is betrayed by the people she trusted, and both she and the suit are destroyed. In the expansive park below the sky the suit is being tested in are two unsuspecting strangers -- one a homeless man and the other a young woman going through several emotional upheavals. Julie is broke, going through a tumultuous divorce, and trying desperately to help her sister (who has had a mental break with reality after witnessing her husband and children being killed). All of this has taken its toll on Julie, who is merely trying to escape to the desert to take some photographs when remnants from the battle suit begin to rain down on her, and inexplicably attach and adhere themselves to her skin.

From there begins a sprawling epic, one that traverses conspiracies, government cover-ups, a frantic hunt for Julie by military and federal agents and trained assassins, and much, much more. Just as Moore did in the stellar Strangers in Paradise, Moore effortlessly details the wide-ranging field of human emotions while propelling his tale forward at breakneck speed (easily one of the greatest strengths of Echo is the fast pace with which exciting plot twists and new information come flying at the reader).

Obviously, Julie is being hunted by the evil scientists for the highly valuable suit she now possesses, but the homeless man has been transformed into something inexplicable as well, and he wants to kill Julie, too. The only person Julie can turn to for aid is Annie's boyfriend, who wants some answers himself.

These kinds of "protagonists on the run because they stumbled into a gigantic cover-up that they had no idea about" stories can have a huge weakness (notably, that they can be extremely derivative and unoriginal). That's when they are left in the wrong hands, however. Terry Moore is not the wrong hands. His incredibly insightful writing is edgy, crisp, and practically crackles on the page (he especially excels at capturing the humanity of his characters, and he never forgets, no matter how "out there" his story gets, that these are real people he is characterizing here). Moreover, his art is fascinatingly detailed. Its beautiful black-and-white images lure readers in and compel us to linger on each page, despite the urge to turn pages as fast as possible to see what will happen next.

I've barely scraped the surface of Echo's plot here. To describe how far it goes, and how fascinating the science gets, would take hundreds, perhaps thousands, more words. And why waste time? Let's cut to the chase: Get this book. You'll love it.

HASH(0x95303cf0) étoiles sur 5 An absolutely unique experience 4 mars 2012
Par A. Morgan - Publié sur Amazon.com

I have been reading comics for a while. If you look through my review page, I've left reviews on a good many of the collected editions. But this book.....it's just something else. At first I was thrown off by the rather basic drawing style, but within 1 page I was hooked. The story is so gripping, so well told, so absolutely FUN that I just couldn't put it down. It's a 600 page monolith I finished in just 1 sit (which took me about 6 hours), and I have no regrets at all. It filled everything I want in a story - believable characters, realistic setting with a single science fiction wrench thrown in, a constantly evolving story, and a sense of "there is more." What I mean by this last part is that author Terry Moore constantly throws in little extra bits of story, intrigue, etc, that simply are not explained - don't worry, it doesn't drive you insane, these just make you think a bit more.

Overall, just get this collected edition. It was a fantastic read, and I am beyond excited that it is being turned into a (hopefully good) movie.

The other five star reviewers, particularly Robert Frost and GraphicNovelReporter.com, have already covered all the basics, so I have little else to say but "what they said." I just want to reiterate that Terry Moore's excellent art is in black and white, not color. If you thought Strangers in Paradise fluctuated too wildly between zany humor and intense violence, Echo doesn't. If you thought SiP was too long, Echo is shorter. If you haven't read SiP, well, give it it a shot; it's actually pretty good, in spite of what I've said about it here :)

I'm bound to pick up Terry Moore's "Rachel Rising" next.

It's nice when an engaging graphic art story is collected complete all in one place. Fine characterization and engaging plot- and you don't have to run around looking for back issues you may have missed. The whole story is here and it's well worth the read. Recommended.
