Soon to be a major motion picture in its own right directed by Luc Besson. Scheduled for July 2017!!

Readers will love, Valerian, who is an attractive action anti-hero and Laureline, an early incarnation of the strong, take-charge female!

Collecting volumes 3 to 5: The Land Without Stars, Welcome to Alflolol and Birds of the Master, three stories that introduce the societal criticism aspect of the series; battle of the sexes, totalitarianism and extreme productivism are lambasted, but never at the expense of fantasy or of the action. As the two characters travel from world to distant world, Laureline becomes a truly equal partner, far from the stereotypical female sidekick roles of the time. Finally, the second part of the exclusive interview with the authors and director Luc Besson is followed by an in-depth portrait of Pierre Christin, the writer.
