Aama UK

The first volume of Frederik Peeters’ SF epic Aama is now officially available in English, if only the UK (at the moment). This far-future space epic in five volumes, reminiscent of the work of Stanislaw Lem, won the best series award at Angoulême festival this year.

The first volume, The Smell of Warm Dust, finds Verloc Nim waking in an unfamiliar crater with total amnesia. He learns about his unhappy past from his old diaries and his brother’s robot ape, Churchill. His life had been in freefall: he’d lost everything because he refused to be technologically upgraded. But now he’s on a mission to another planet to retrieve a biorobotic experiment called Aama.

Peeters has been nominated at Angoulême in the best book category five times. He lives with his wife and daughter in Geneva. Publisher SelfMadeHero is fully invested in this star of contemporary French comics, having earlier brought out his works Sandcastle and Pachyderme. The current US release date for Aama Book I is March 2014.

Where am I?
