April Books 9) Aldébaran #5: La Créature, by Leo

Final volume in the first sequence of bande dessinées by Leo, in which Marc and Kim encounter both the mysterious creature, the gigantic mantrisse. which has been lurking behind their adventures so far, and have a showdown with the authoritarian government which has been dogging their footsteps since Book 3; also contact with Earth is resumed after a gap of centuries. Perhaps because I'd left it longer than planned to read, it didn't have quite the punch I expected - though there are some really mindblowing scenes when they walk into the belly of the beast - but I will now look for and start on the second series, Betelgeuse. I am also glad to say that I'm not having much problem with the French; it's pitched just about right for my reading level.
