Description

I saw this big graphic novel at Angouleme and was immediately impressed. The simple graphic style reminds me of Alexandre Clerisse, but Benjamin Adam combines the graphic look with limited color, usually two-color. The story jumps in time and space, between characters, and Adam uses line weight and color to identify place and time.

From the publisher:

In 2151, the world population was divided by ten due to climate damage. Humanity lives in a precarious balance. Grouped in seven urban areas, it has invented new models of social life. Elsewhere, nature expands freely. Simone, an astronaut, is part of a space exploration mission called "SOON": a journey of no return, a project of unprecedented ambition in the history of humanity.

Before the big departure, she takes her son Youri for a last road trip. In contact with the world, will Youri understand his mother's desire for the absolute, for adventure and for the unknown?

Resume:

Regroupée dans sept zones urbaines, elle a inventé de nouveaux modèles de vie sociale. Ailleurs, la nature s'étend librement. Simone, astronaute, fait partie d'une mission d'exploration spatiale nommée « SOON » : un voyage sans retour, un projet d'une ambition inédite dans l'histoire de l'humanité.

Avant le grand départ, elle emmène son fils Youri pour un dernier road-trip. Au contact du monde, Youri comprendra-t-il le désir d'absolu, d'aventure et d'inconnu de sa mère ?
