This Book Has Pictures! | Aama: The Smell of Warm Dust


Robbed of his memories, Verloc Nim is handed a journal. Inside the journal, in his own words, is the story of how Verloc ended up on a strange planet and what happened to his memories. Thus begins Frederik Peeters’ Aama: The Smell of Warm Dust. Looking through the pages, Verloc discovers the misery of his former life and that impossible things have been happening on this planet far from Earth.

“Effortlessly, Peeters’ creates a fully formed world. The art is beautiful, the background are packed with details of this strange world, and the panels are full of real, fully-formed, characters. Peeters balances themes of exploration, loss, regret and the belief that we can somehow wipe away our past sins.” -Drew

Frederik Peeters is a Swiss graphic novelist. He received his bachelor of arts degree in visual communication from the École Supérieure d’Arts Appliqués in 1995. In 2013, Aama was awarded for Best Series from the Angoulême International Comics Festival.
