A mute child. A harrowing journey. A race for answers.

Aama Vol. 3

Frederik Peeters

On the fantastical, rapidly evolving world of Ona(ji), Verloc Nim and his companions are heading to the release point of the biotech experiment Aama, a project that now appears to be frighteningly out of control. Faced with an increasingly desperate fight for survival in an ever-changing landscape, the expedition teeters on the brink of collapse. The Desert of Mirrors, the third volume of Frederik Peeters’ award-winning series, draws us deeper into a complex and unsettling future where creation and loss go hand in hand. As moments of self-reflection and revelation bleed into a vivid reality bordering on madness, the search for Aama continues to raise questions – about the new life around them, about the Muy-Tang Corporation… and about Verloc’s own family.

A prodigious talent. A passionate visionary. Pablo Picasso.

Pablo

Julie Birmant

An award-winning graphic biography of one of the world’s best-loved artists, Pablo follows Picasso’s artistic career from his origins in penury to the advent of modern art. Taking in the artist’s early life among the bohemians of Montmartre, with all of its scandal and frustration, and his turbulent relationship with his model and lover Fernande, Julie Birmant and Clément Oubrerie show how Picasso’s style developed in response to his friendships and rivalries. An entertaining and beautifully drawn account, this authoritative graphic novel explores the themes and obsessions - among them, sex, death and his great nemesis, Henri Matisse - that drove Picasso to express himself.
