Award-winning Swiss graphic novelist Frederik Peeters (Blue Pills) soars to new heights with an existential interplanetary epic that never strays far from the human heart. Lupus Lablennorre is a man on the run. Like a cosmic Odysseus, he wanders from planet to planet, haunted by his past and orbiting around a woman. He meets Sanaa, a beautiful runaway, but when tragedy strikes, they're forced to flee to new worlds. Each offers many ways to disappear. But Lupus will find that the tendrils of friendship, love, and family are not so easily severed. Occasional nudity.

"Armed with astonishingly expressive brushwork and a dreamy, intimate narrative, Frederik Peeters drifts on the solar winds to a new understanding of memory, guilt, isolation, and connection."

Peeters lives in Switzerland. His autobiographical graphic novel Blue Pills received the Polish Jury Prize at the Angoulême International Comics Festival, where it was also nominated for Best Book. Blue Pills also won the Premios La Cárcel de Papel in Spain for Best Foreign Comic. This was his first work to be translated into English.

Other graphic novels include Pachyderme (nominated for the Grand Prix at the Angoulême International Comics Festival 2010), RG, and Koma. He worked with documentary film-maker Pierre Oscar Lévy on an adaptation of Blue Pills for that medium. In 2010 the two collaborated on an unsettling science fiction graphic novel, available in English in 2011 as Sandcastle.

He is also the author and illustrator of Aâma, a science-fiction series released in four parts between March, 2014, and September, 2015.
