Between 2013 and 2014, the Adrastée diptych was created, set in mythic Greece with a post-apocalyptic atmosphere. In 2016, the author published the highly successful one-shot Shangri-La, a work of science fiction. In 2017, Shangri-La was nominated for a "Fauve d'Or", or Best Album, at Angoulême. At the end of 2018, Bablet announced that he was working on a new one-shot entitled Carbone et Silicium, an anticipatory story addressing themes such as transhumanism and ecological and migratory crises. The graphic novel was released in bookstores in August 2020. In 2021 it was one of the five finalists for the Critics' Grand Prix at Angoulême International Comics Festival. Bablet was also awarded the Prix de la BD Fnac France Inter 2021.
