This volume is the first in a series that grew organically out of a promotional album Moebius made for the French car manufacturer Citroën, called "The Star", in 1983. In the initial story, Moebius introduces two genderless protagonists, Stel and Atan, who crash on a bald planet and must traverse it in an old Citroën.
They eventually stumble on a camp of interstellar refugees surrounding a mysterious pyramid, and are transported to an unknown world, described as a 'Garden of Eden somewhere in another galaxy.' The open ending of the Citroën story inspired Moebius to think what would happen after, and he conceived the idea for a sequel.
Finding that the material, however, was too much to fit into one album, Moebius plotted out three to four books' worth of stories, and the series was born. It was additionally intended to provide the basis of a coherent Moebius universe, one which crossed over with other major works like The Airtight garage.
