Bételgeuse (Aldébaran Series), volume 1 p15-16-17.

Maï Lan joins Leila Nakad’s research/rebel group after the gruesome discovery of her parent’s suicide and her escape from the soldiers thanks to the iums (the weird panda-things in the header pict).

Bételgeuse is the second cycle in the Aldébaran series, a French bande-dessinées series written and drawn by Léo and published by Dargaud in French and Cinebook in English. I usually describe it as hard-science fiction with a hefty side of on-the-nose interpersonal drama. The whole science fiction side is solid though. Good exploration sci-fi with a side of dystopia. And the art and colours are gorgeous.
