“ Two robot-themed tales from Stanislaw Lem ”

Schejbal adapts "Uranium Earpieces": can young inventor, Pyron, find a way to free the people from an evil tyrant? Klimowski tackles "The Sanatorium of Dr. Vliperdius": our hero visits Dr. Vliperdius' institution, but its patients soon turn against him. Can he escape the sanatorium after learning its dark secret?

Schejbal's graphic style... sympathetically highlights both the fairytale and political aspects of Lem's strange tale
