Fourth volume of the collection: return to Earth, and some great upheavals in the characters’ lives, are on the menu for the best titles of the series.

This volume contains books 9 to 12 – two unmissable two-parters that represent a turning point in the story of our agents, and which are widely considered by critics and readers alike to be the pinnacle of the series. Characterised by a return to 20th century Earth, these two stories are suffused with incredible melancholy and poetic charm, and force Valerian, the action man, to face his limitations. As the real date neared 1986, final year of our world according to the authors, Pierre Christin reconciled fiction and reality with consummate skill and daring, sweeping aside the status quo and sending his heroes down a completely new path. This book is introduced by several articles of the recently departed Stan Barets.

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.

Jean-Claude Mézières and Pierre Christin created Valerian in 1967 after working in the USA together, one as a cowboy, the other a teacher. While Valerian is Mézières’ only comic series, he has worked as an illustrator in many other areas, including designs and sets for The Fifth Element, and he was awarded the Grand Prix du festival d’Angoulême in 1984. Christin also works in collaboration with other artists such as Tardi and Bilal and writes novels and film scripts.
