Aâma by Frederik Peeters( Book )

2 editions published in 2011 in French and held by 47 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Cette bande dessinée de science-fiction (space opera) débute de manière énigmatique par des propos échangés entre un personnage amnésique, échoué sur une planète hostile, et un singe-robot raisonneur et amateur de cigares, apparemment chargé de sa protection. Le passé diégétique immédiat se dévoile par analepses successives, ce qui, toutefois, n'épuise pas l'inquiétante étrangeté de la situation ; prénommé Verloc, comme le héros du roman de Joseph Conrad, L'Agent secret, le personnage principal est enrôlé par son frère, agent au service d'une puissante multinationale de biotechnologies, et dont la mission consiste à s'emparer d'une substance appelée "aâma", mise au point par un groupe de scientifiques, que leur employeur a abandonnés cinq ans plus tôt sur une lointaine planète. Le style graphique rappelle celui du "Monde d'Edena", série dessinée par Moebius

Lupus : [l'intégrale] by Frederik Peeters( Book )

19 editions published between 2003 and 2014 in 3 languages and held by 36 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Le récit de science-fiction (space opera) est essentiellement centré sur un personnage médiocre et égocentrique : Lupus, un dilettante qui s'offre, en compagnie d'un ami, des vacances intergalactiques, et dont le loisir favori consiste à pêcher les créatures marines les plus monstrueuses, tout en abusant de substances psychotropes diverses. À partir du moment où s'invite un troisième personnage, une jeune fille fantasque et imprévisible, les relations entre les deux amis se détériorent, en même temps que, coupable d'un meurtre, Lupus condamne leur trio à fuir ; véritable catalyseur, ce personnage féminin contraint le héros à mener une analyse introspective douloureuse qui, de planète en planète, ne lui laissera aucun répit. Alternant les vues sur l'espace, d'un noir profond, animé de formes extravagantes, les paysages peuplés de créatures massives, et les gros plans sur les visages, les planches quasiment muettes invitent progressivement à partager l'intimité d'un personnage, devenu, au fil de la narration, extrêmement émouvant
