From web page 6 (By Jean-Marc & Randy Lofficier):
The street to Aedena
"The Gardens of Aedena, a sequel to Upon A Star, our first quantity, marks a transition in Moebius’ career.
The tale is itself an instance of a transition. It exhibits a innovative and sleek evolution from the just a little blameless, “clear line” sort of Upon a Star within the first twenty to thirty pages, to a extra distinctive glance, greater tailored to its darker ending.
Then, as Moebius explains in his afterword, The Gardens of Aedena is additionally the departure element from which a chain of inter-related tales will spring, linking up with past works, reminiscent of The hermetic Garage, to shape the foundation of a constant Moebius universe. This saga is deliberate to surround numerous multi-book cycles, and hundreds of thousands of years within the historical past of the Moebius multiverse. And all of it starts off here...
And what greater image for this conceptual transition, than the not-so-obvious go back of significant Grubert because the enigmatic grasp Burg! Continuity buffs also will benefit from the portray at the wall of web page forty, which portrays the hermetic storage itself or relatively its ancestor, the asteroid Flower, because it seemed in The attractive Goof.
The Gardens of Aedena is a bridge among Moebius’ previous and Moebius’ destiny in additional methods than one. Hit Man, for example, an past tale, very diverse either widespread and content material, seems to have greater than a passing reference to the topics of The Aedena Cycle. And so does The untrue Body, a newer, fun marvelous voyage. evidently, the topics that Moebius is now constructing have been seminally found in his paintings years ago.
Last, and maybe now not least, this can be the 1st time that one in all Moebius’ stones is released first in English. certainly, The Gardens of Aedena has now not but seemed in France, lower than any shape. when you reflect on that the tale used to be drawn partly in Japan, it can rather well be Moebius’ first, really overseas piece of work.
A milestone at the highway to Aedena."
