• Julie Michelin (France)

The universe as we know it is on the verge of extinction. Poof! In no time, the stars, planets, objects, humans and loved ones will gradually be absorbed into nothingness, carried away by a mysterious phenomenon of dematerialization. To prevent the world from sinking permanently into the abyss, a team of scientists elaborates a plan to create a matter stabilizer. Line and Marlene are sent on a mission light years from home, to an unknown planet. They must find the Arbea Nauticeum and the Obsidonita Kevlar, two of the most stable organic matters in the universe which, together with others, would put an end to these paranormal events.

The two young women hope to return victorious from their journey, but it turns out to be more complicated than expected. The place is inhospitable, to say the least: this jungle planet’s flora and fauna is like nothing they’ve ever seen before…

Eksploracja is a science fiction tale that takes us on a frantic adventure that turns our relationship with time and space upside down. Line and Marlene will go through challenging times, experiencing risky – and sometimes hallucinatory – ordeals.

Julie Michelin’s first comic book deploys masterful watercolour double-page spreads to narrate her characters’ initiation to the mysteries of the supernatural and their encounter with the fabulous extra-terrestrial life.
