April Book 7) Aldébaran 3: La Photo, by Leo

The third in Leo's classic bande dessinée series, with a lost human colony on a lush tropical planet where something very odd is happening to the local fauna. Where the first two albums had our heroes Marc and Kim slowly making their way to the city of Anatolia, here we have Marc being sprung from prison three years after being banged up by the local goons by the peculiar Mr Pad, who simply wants to break into the local museum for Marc and Kim to examine some old photos. This doesn't seem much of a plot hook, and our protagonists have fun exploring the city's yoof subculture while staying a step ahead of the authorities; and then on the last page they and we finally see the photograph of the title, and it is delightfully mind-blowing.
