'Cosmonauts of the Future Vol. 1' by Lewis Trondheim with art by Manu Larcenet is a funny and strange graphic novel with art that reminded me of some of my favorite comic strips.
Gildas and Martina meet at school and they immediately dislike each other. One believes everyone is an alien. The other believes everyone is a robot. Soon their shared loved of wacky theories and their overactive imagination sends them on adventures to try and prove that all is not as it seems. Accompanied by Martina's dog and Gildas' little sister, they soon find that the world is even stranger than they believe.
This was a fun story. I loved the crankiness of the characters and their weird imaginations that kept them distant from those around them. I loved Gildas' little sister Gaelle, who just seemed to go along with the craziness. The art is fun and colorful. The charcters have oval shaped heads, and there is a lot going on in the background of the panels.
I received a review copy of this graphic novel from Europe Comics and NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. Thank you for allowing me to review this graphic novel.
