Hypnagogic Volume 1 (originally entitled The Awakening Penguin) is a recurring dream about Rèfles, a fictional character.
He’s made of repressed emotions that wander in a single direction in the form of black plasma to be gathered in a liquid mass: his body. He has acquired his consciousness over time and lives in a parallel dimension together with other Archetypes. He can communicate with humans only through dreams and art.
Rèfles is a 17 years old chef who works in a three stars hotel. Fried duck is his best recipe. After several years of routine, he decides to quit his daily job to travel around the Universe with a spaceship owned by his grandfather. He visited three planets before being forced to land on the Coalsack Dark Nebula due to ship damage, starting a new life.
