A strange accident at an offshore platform in the Caribbean draws Yoko, Vic and Pol into a new encounter with the Vineans – aliens who have lived underground for thousands of years without the world’s knowledge. But Vinean politics are changing; some factions now believe it would be best to return to the surface, share it with the humans… while others are bent on taking it over by force. The young Japanese will have to fight to protect peace.

Do you know, I opened up this book and thought "The art looks different"  but it isn't. I really must be getting old!

Oddly, hidden underground civilisations used to pop up in old British Golden Age comics a lot. Seems it must be quite crowded down there!

Again, Leloup delivers action and adventure and though the age group the books are aimed at are 8 years and up, I think these can be fully enjoyed by an adult reader.  If not ...does it mean I have a mental age of an 8 year old?? Oy.
