Second frame of third chapter:
Yajna: "We still have not been accepted as
a permanent member of the UN Security
Council, despite our diplomatic efforts."
I read the first volume in this series a couple of months ago, and enjoyed it; the second keeps up the pace, with a well-realised set of characters stealing a giant nuclear-powered battle robot from its resting place in Bombay and bringing it towards its destiny in the Algerian desert; meanwhile the baby born at the end of the previous volume has a very mysterious mark on its forehead which seems linked with the mysterious intrusion into our reality from another world. This volume is a little middle book-y as we travel from start to conclusion of the trilogy (in a giant killer robot floating westward over the Indian Ocean), but the pace is kept up very well. The third and final volume comes out next month, and I'm looking forward to it.
This was my top unread comic in a language other than English. Next on that list is vol 2 of Retour sur Aldebaran, by Leo. (Though I'll bump that down a step if I get hold of Le Dernier Atlas 3 first.)
