A visual experience not to be missed, in a large format hardcover

Planet Earth, engaged in an intergalactic conflict, owes its salvation to the clone of Leonardo da Vinci and to the rebirth of his genius. Author Stéphane Levallois has created the fantastic universes of many of the big Hollywood blockbusters (Alien, King Kong (Skull Island), Harry Potter and many others). The result of two years of elaboration and work, this space opera exemplifies his talent in two areas that he masters to perfection: the universe of science fiction and art. To build his story and compose his boards, Levallois draws from the painted and drawn work of the Renaissance master, selecting a large number of drawings and paintings by Leonardo to represent the characters, vessels or even the architectures in his story. The grand scale result is stupefying as Leonardo’s everlasting visions are successfully projected into a stunning futuristic setting.


"Comics aficionados will enjoy this experiment purely for the virtuoso quality of Levallois’ art." —Publishers Weekly

"Brilliant melding of space opera and art history spiced up with a clear shout-out to gay pride that has been wonderfully combined in this hardcover novel. A big handsome volume." —Karen Haber, Locus
