Aama is bizarre and beautiful, wondrous and wounded. In telling the story of a drug-addicted former bookseller in the distant future, Swiss graphic novelist Frederik Peeters draws on '70s European sci-fi (more than little Moebius) and existential philosophy (more than a little Sartre) to create a landscape that's uniquely his own. While the first volume had a lot of exposition, the second is all action, as Verloc Nim and his brother Conrad try to uncover the mystery of the sentient biorobotic substance known as Aama.
