A visual experience not to be missed, in a large format hardcover

Planet Earth, engaged in an intergalactic conflict, entrusts its salvation to the clone of Leonardo da Vinci and to the rebirth of his genius. Author Stéphane Levallois has created the fantastic universes of many of the big Hollywood blockbusters (Alien, King Kong (Skull Island), Harry Potter and many others). In this tribute on the occasion of the massive retrospective of Leonardo da Vinci at the Louvre, he builds his story and composes his boards selecting a large number of drawings and paintings by the maestro to represent the characters, vessels or even the architectures in his story. The grand scale result is stupefying as Leonardo's everlasting visions are successfully projected into a stunning futuristic setting. A visual experience not to be missed in an oversized hardcover.


"Comics aficionados will enjoy this experiment purely for the virtuoso quality of Levallois' art." —Publishers Weekly

"Brilliant melding of space opera and art history spiced up with a clear shout-out to gay pride that has been wonderfully combined in this hardcover novel. A big handsome volume." —Karen Haber, Locus
