Set in 2150, Soon portrays an Earth devastated by climate change. Humanity’s only hope is to colonise other planets, but the distances involved make such journeys a one-way trip. 50-year-old astronaut Simone has signed up to go on a mission but it means leaving her son, Youri, forever. In this first volume, they go on a trip around the world, to experience together the planet Simone’s leaving behind.
Written by Thomas Cadène and Benjamin Adam, with art also by Benjamin Adam, Soon is a monochromatic sci-fi story of a parent’s desire to move on. Available now in two volumes from Europe Comics. Check out the trailer for the book, below:
