May Books 22) Aldébaran 4: La Groupe, by Leo

I do like this particular sequence; Li, who has been in a relationship with the rather younger Marc, calmly tells him that she always knew it was only a matter of time before he realised his true feelings for Kim; in the last frame, Kim's expression is brilliant (as is Marc's) while Li is already on the lookout for her next lover.

In this penultimate album of the five that make up the Aldébaran sequence, it all comes together: Marc and Kim finally realise their attraction for one another, and together with most of the mysterious people they have encountered in the previous three volumes, they find themselves on a vast airship heading for the mystery at the core of their world - pursued by agents of the clericalist oppressive government which appears to be determined to stop them. I do hope that the last volume rounds this narrative off properly - the buildup so far has been very good.
