Fulgur 1

Writer Christophe Bec begins his three-part adaptation of The Fulgur, a scientific romance by Paul de Sémant first serialized in Le Globe Trotteur from March to August 1907. Sémant (1855–1915), whose real name was Paul Cousturier, was an author and illustrator of children’s books, and this novel of adventure and exploration will appeal to fans not only of Verne, but also steampunk and process-oriented, problem-solving SF like Andy Weir’s The Martian. The old-fashioned plotting and flat characterization are completely transcended, however, by what really sells this book: Dejan Nenadov’s art, with glorious colors by Tanja Wenish. Feast your eyes:
