The cycles of The Worlds of Aldebaran undoubtedly make up one of the most captivating science fiction series of recent years.

The author tells of humanity's first attempts to colonise distant planets. Kim - who faces many adventures and challenges - begins her trek on the Aldebaran planet. Along the way to Betelgeuse and Antares, she encounters strange creatures, confronts dangers from unknown worlds, and witnesses the damage caused by mankind's insanity.

In Survivors ... Mark and Kim are sent to Betelgeuse to look for survivors of the spacecraft crash that killed 3,000 people seven years earlier. They do find survivors, among them Tazio Menegaz and Colonel Logan, who tell them the colonisers had been divided over whether the Lums (indigenous creatures) are as intelligent as humans. If they are, the humans would have been forced to abandon their colonising enterprise according to UN laws. Kim decides to investigate for herself.

In The Expedition ... Kim and her team have gone off into Betelgeuse's deepest canyons to investigate Logan and Menegaz's claims. They discover that danger can come from the most unexpected sources.

Second cycle: Betelgeuse
In 2184, a few years after interstellar flights resumed, mankind launched a second colonisation attempt, this time of a planet around the Betelgeuse star. The first ship, with over 3,000 people onboard, arrived without incident and remained in orbit while a team of technicians went down to the surface to prepare for the colonists’ arrival. Soon afterwards, all communication with Earth mysteriously ceased. It took six years for Earth finally to send a rescue mission to Betelgeuse in order to find out what had happened a small mission, with a reduced crew of only three: two astronauts and young Kim, now 24, who had just finished her biology studies on Earth. Once more, she would be swept into a series of events, often tragic and extraordinary, that would eventually change her life forever. After the six months she would spend on Betelgeuse, world of green canyons, she would never be the same person again.

Leo has illustrated an album about the life of Gandhi, published by Editions Centurion, and collaborated with scriptwriter Rodolphe on the Trent series published by Dargaud in France. He launched Aldebaran - which he writes and draws - in 1993
