Présentation de l'éditeur

ENIGMA is a thought-provoking post-modern tale of self-discovery and sexual identity told against the backdrop of improbable super-heroes and villains. Michael Smith lives a meaningless life of routine and boredom. But when Enigma, his favorite childhood comic book hero, inexplicably comes to life, Smith finds himself on an obsessive crusade to uncover the secret behind his improbable existence. Teaming with Enigma's comic creator, Smith encounters an insanity-inducing psychopath, a brain-eating serial killer, and a suicide-inciting clown posse as his quest uncovers hidden truths about both his idol and himself. This new edition of the Vertigo classic is written by Peter Milligan (JUSTICE LEAGUE DARK, RED LANTERNS) with kinetic art by Duncan Fegredo (SHADE THE CHANGING MAN).

Collects ENIGMA #1-8.

Format: Broché
Ce tome contient une histoire complète et indépendante de toute autre. Il comprend les 8 épisodes de la minisérie, initialement parus en 1993, écrits par Peter Milligan, dessinés et encrés par Duncan Fegredo, et mis en couleurs par Sherilyn van Valkenburgh. La présente édition comprend une introduction de Grant Morrison (écrite en 1995) louant le caractère novateur du récit.

La scène introductive de 2 pages évoque et montre un meurtre vieux de 25 ans, une femme tuant son mari aux bords d'une ferme, dans un coin de l'Arizona typique où les enfants ont des relations sexuelles avec leurs parents, et finissent par tuer quelqu'un (dixit le narrateur). De nos jours, Michael Smith est un réparateur téléphonique et intervient dans la demeure de Victor Lamont, une vedette de la télé.

Le soir dans une ruelle, des policiers retrouvent un cadavre d'une personne dont le cerveau a été mangé par le Brain Eater, il y a un lézard mort et conservé à proximité. C'est mardi, Michael passe une soirée avec ses copains, puis rentre chez lui pour une partie de jambes en l'air avec sa copine (comme tous les mardis). Non loin de là, le superhéros Enigma est la proie de l'ennui. Michael Smith va finir par se retrouver nez à nez avec un supercriminel (The Head), puis avec Enigma, puis avec le créateur du comics d'Enigma datant des années 1970.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A Twisted Tale with a Perfect Ending 29 avril 2008
Par KMW - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
I never knew quite where Engima was going to take me until I was finished with it. At times I was confused -- hell, most of the time I was confused. I worried that it would become too preachy or philosophical to be enjoyable; I worried it would fall into randomness and end without making sense; I worried it would fall victim to awkward stereotypes. It did none of these things.

Enigma is a fantastic story, dark and twisted. The art reflects this well; it may not be the prettiest thing to look at, but it's fitting enough that it shouldn't be a problem for almost anyone once they get into the story.

The characters begin simply, and through the events of the story grow three-dimensional so that you can't help but care for them. The villains are twisted and fantastic: Envelope Girl especially is a favorite of mine, though she overall isn't entirely important as a character.

Michael is a twenty-something nobody whose life continues every week in such a repetitive way that it could only be called obsessive compulsive; he wears his underwear according to the days of the week and only has sex on Tuesdays. His world is shaken when the first villain appears, and soon he realizes that they're from a three-issue comic he loved as a child. Titus is the creator of the comic, an older, gay man who was too stoned while writing it to make sense of it himself, though he's praised as a prophet by a group of youths called the Enigmatics. And there's the Enigma himself, alternately loved and hated by the populace of the city he more or less protects, and properly enigmatic himself. And the narrator -- an omnipresent voice with an all-encompassing knowledge of the story, full of scorn and contempt for those he tells the story and for the characters within, withholding knowledge and becoming, as he does so, a well-developed character himself.

And the ending -- the ending is perfect. You may be unsure of the story all the way until then, but the ending wraps it all together, fits every piece into place without a space between. Fantastic.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 One of my Top Ten Favorite Comic Book Stories 4 janvier 2015

Grant Morrison said about Milligan's Enigma, "I believe his Enigma book is far superior to Watchmen in every significant way." and he is right.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Mind Twisting 19 juin 2001
Par Blahblahblah - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
It is impossible to really review this book's plot very well without giving away surprises, but the surface plot is about a man encountering characters straight out of the pages of his favourite, although shortlived, comic book series he read in the early 1970s while growing up called "Enigma". The comic book itself was the very surreal creation of a comic artist who was clearly the product of the late 1960s counter-culture. The first villian to appear is called "The Truth", and his power consists of driving people insane by telling them some hidden truth (geared towards each individual). Other villians include a group of men dressed up as clowns who break into peoples' homes and drive people into committing suicide through some sort of reverse feng-shui (they rearrange their victim's furniture in such a manner to create a suicidal mind-state). The hero of the series teams up with the comic book's creator, who has an unwanted cult following (literally) now that his creations are coming to life, and the two of them also track down the Enigma to learn his secret.
The whole series deals with such concepts as "reality" and responsibility and other issues I can't really give away without ruining part of the plot. As one reviewer's title notes, it could be described as post-modern existentialism. This is a brilliantly written, beautifully drawn mind-expanding piece of work.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A postmodern comic. 6 février 2003
Par Caleb - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
This mini-series defines postmodernism. Milligan plays with the convention of comics through editor comments and satire toward older styles. The main theme throughout the whole book, although one may not realize until partially through it, is that trying to find the meaning of life is absurd. The question "What's next?" permeates the mystery. And the answer? Nothing. Life is like that.
But that doesn't make the story less interesting. The characters are fascinating, and the art perfect for a postmodern comic. There is just enough detail and shadow for you to figure out what the lines are supposed to represent. Of course, these drawings aren't the real thing. So why try to recreate the thing on paper, if the artist can't help but fail. At best, all you get is a pretty picture.
This is definitely not a comic for younger readers. Postmodernism is very difficult to understand, and I'm still struggling. The point to this story is simply that there is no point. Who is the Enigma? What is the truth? What's next? Do the answers really matter? Postmodernism would say, that the Enigma is a construction of several different things. He is a man that spent most of his young life in a well, he eats lizards, he possesses great mind powers, he loves the lead character (Michael Smith), he based his image on an old comic book character. Have I defined him? Is that who the Enigma is? No! He has so many more definitions, but he is nothing really.
Five stars! Because this is the first time I have read a comic book and actually felt like my mind was challenged. I will offer it to all of my friends who enjoy intellectual reading. I shall read it again and again. I'll never figure out the point completely, but it sure is fun to try!
