After The Extraordinary Journeythe duo Filippi Camboni comes back with Prima Spatia, an original space adventure, imagining a universe in which mysterious stellar creatures hide in the confines of secondary space bubbles. These mysterious beings are then chased by teams of astronauts who seek to capture them, risking their lives, to make a very lucrative business.
Until the day the LaFlèche spaceship picks up a survivor named Alba. The young woman, of high lineage, seems endowed with strange powers, which she does not control herself.
This first album therefore serves as a presentation, installing the protagonists in their costumes, without really letting the full potential of the scenario express itself. The plot remains discreet and is only in its infancy. We bet that the sequel further develops the main plot by following the trajectory of Alba’s character.
The design is signed by Filippi, rich in detail and vibrant colors. A radiant graphic universe full of energy!
A case to follow, then!
Excerpt from the comic:
In search of stellar creatures. In a futuristic universe, Alba, 17, lives cloistered on an asteroid and its luxurious domain. Her parents always kept her away from the world. But the day she is kidnapped, everything changes! Rescued by the Arrow, Alba must adapt to her new life aboard this cosmic ship and find her place within her crew who explores the various bubbles of secondary spaces in search of stellar creatures… These impressive creatures represent the source economic mainstay of the different species that hunt them relentlessly. But chasing them is not without danger. So, when Alba dares to venture into space without a spacesuit to approach them, her gesture causes general amazement! Intrigued, the crew begins to perceive the singularity of its host. Alba feels that a special connection binds her to these incredible beings. But what she still doesn’t know are her true origins. The secrets that surround it could well go so far as to trigger a revolution and challenge the established order as well as the fragile balance uniting the multiple civilizations of this universe. After the success of the Extraordinary Journey saga, the Filippi / Camboni duo returns with a new series of adventures. A fascinating story which, under cover of a plot where the accents of the stories of Melville and Asimov mingle, addresses themes as varied as sociology, bio-ethics, ecology or the preservation of species. An exhilarating, astral and captivating first volume.
