Format: Hardcover
Some point in the future, some place in the universe: Verloc Nim awakes in a smoking crater, on a desolate planet, with no memory of who he is and what he's doing there. Fortunately, after not too long, a robotic talking ape named Churchill ambles up and presents Verloc with a diary that explains, at least in part, what is going on. The diary, it turns out, is Verloc's own - the handwriting confirms as much - and thus he is able to explain to himself exactly what has happened to himself up to this point.

As Verloc and Churchill trudge across the planet, with Verloc reading the diary and Churchill longing for a smoke, two further strands of narratives emerge: in the first, Verloc awakes in a puddle on a Radiant street after a bender brought on by a combination of splitting from his wife, losing access to his daughter and being swindled out of his family business. Fortunately - or so it seemed at the time - Verloc's estranged brother Conrad happened to be passing that exact puddle at that time and so, after getting Verloc cleaned up, tells him about a project run by the Muy-Tang Corporation that is going to involve a journey to the far reaches of the universe. In the second strand of Verloc's story, he and Churchill are hiding out in some kind of fortified laboratory/research station with a group of mentally deteriorating scientists, with Verloc passing his time by writing in his diary.

The Smell of Warm Dust is the first volume in Frederik Peeters' Aama series (the whole series being originally published in French and now being given a staggered English-language release by SelfMadeHero) and proves to be an excellent, captivating beginning. As a hero, Verloc Nim is still hard to get a read on.

This probably my new favorite graphic novel. Weather you are a fan of graphic novel or not, a fan sf or not this tail is wonderful. Great narration, great story, fantastic characters and beautiful drawings. defo worth reading or offering. I would suggest also the volumes 2 and 3 which i am not sure if they have been translated in english yet.

I loved this book, the artwork is brilliant and the storyline makes me look forward to the next installment. All the characters are really well thought out, especially the cigar-smoking, robot, bodyguard gorilla! Fantastic.

Like the comic very much, only thing is can't download the kindle version onto my computer, so I either look at it in B&W on my kindle or in glorious colour on my Samsung phone, where the colour really shines through but it's very, very tiny and hard to read, like really hard to read.
Don't know why they won't let you download onto the kindle on my computer, but if your buying it thought you should know.

Format: Hardcover
A beautifully illustrated and gripping sci-fi graphic novel with a strange mystery at its heart. The confident but natural linework and solid evocative colours bring the world of the book to life. I'll definitely be seeking out the further volumes in the series.
