Icaro is a strange boy and this is his story. We begin just before his birth where his mother is dreaming of flying while in labor. In her dream she plummets, awakes and Icaro is born. But Icaro is not like other babies. Icaro defies gravity. Icaro also seems to be the result of some genetic tampering. Icaro is then placed into study.
Twenty years later, Icaro is kept in a converted mining facility. There he has grown up and never seen the sky. Although twenty years have passed, the controlling characters seem not to have aged a single day.
But Icaro is not the only odd character. The city is being attacked by rebels that can explode at will. There is some hinting to their origins.
But the real story is that of Icaro as a young man. Although he knows no other life, there is a growing need in him. He seeks freedom, the sky, love and possibly lust. His flying abilities allow him a great freedom of movement should he escape his cage (a large domes atrium).
This first volume ends with Icaro attempting freedom. I look forward to the next volume of this intriguing story.

As a fan of Moebius I found this very disappointing. Moebius is known for his Sci-Fi/fantasy and westerns. The artwork in the SF work is amazing and the stories are usually pretty good too. The westerns rely mostly on the story and the art work is OK. Icaro has a story that moves glacially slow and the all black and white art work is pedestrian at best. Did Moebius really have a hand in this?? Yes, it's pretty clear from the images that he did, but the effort is Way below Airtight Garage, Incal, Arzach, Lt. Blueberry, etc. Two thumbs down.
