About the Author
The publication and success of Blue Pills established Frederik Peeters as one of the world's most important graphic novelists. Since then, he has received five nominations in the 'Best Book' category at Angouleme International Comics Festival; in 2013 he won the 'Best Series' prize at the same event for the first two volumes of AAMA. Peeters is known for creating hugely imaginative fiction that tackles difficult topics with sensitivity. He lives with his wife and daughter in Geneva.

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.Read more ›
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.
