To coincide with Luc Besson’s 2017 film, here’s the complete collection of Valerian and Laureline’s adventures in English at last - including one unpublished volume, a longer cut of another, and a lot of details on the collaboration between the director and the authors!

This first volume of the collection contains books 1 and 2 of the series: The City of Shifting Waters - in its original two-part, nine pages longer format - and The Empire of a Thousand Planets. It also includes book 0, Bad Dreams, translated into English for the first time: the very first adventures of our two heroes, published after City and retroactively numbered. Finally, linking the volumes of this collection together, a long, exclusive interview with the authors and director Luc Besson is illustrated with new art as well as numerous sketches, studies and photographs from the latter’s bigscreen adaptation.

'Sly, subtle, brilliantly mind-boggling and moodily mysterious, this sharp saga is a trans-time tale of subtle power, dripping with devilish wit, but no matter how trenchant, barbed, culturally aware or ethically crusading, Valerian and Laureline yarns never allow message to overshadow excitement or entertainment.' - Win Wiacek [Now Read This!]

Key Points:
  • A series emblematic of French science fiction
  • A strong influence on science-fiction films - among others, The Fifth Element and Star Wars
  • Now a major motion picture in its own right directed by Luc Besson
  • An imaginative and colourful series, with lovable and complex characters - Valerian, an action anti-hero, and Laureline, an early incarnation of the strong, take-charge female.
