The World of Valerian and Laureline

I'm a sucker for "universe" books, particularly lavishly illustrated ones. Valerian: The Illustrated Treasury  by Pierre Christin and Jean-Claude Mézières hits all the right notes. It's a guide to the world of the long-lived French comic series.  It's only flaw is that it's a bit thin. Check out these pages:

Oh no. Now I wants it! Love that series, even though I've only read a few of the books. Amazing art, stories and characters.

BTW Trey, just a heads-up, I've deleted my old blogspot blog and have a new one at Wordpress:

I had no idea this existed. I've fallen in love with the comic recently after Nick Kunst gave me some issues. This guide looks lovely.

Boy, that's pretty. Much like Ben I had no idea this book existed. Thanks for the heads up.

Such a great series, it's really a shame the movie was a bit of a flop and we probably won't see another cinematic effort for the setting.
