Fifth volume of the collection, and it’s almost a new series that begins, without ever losing any of what makes its strength or its charm

In this volume of the Collection you will discover books 13 to 15 - our heroes’ life has been irretrievably changed with the disappearance of future Earth and Galaxity. Lacking work, they become freelance spies in the 80s in On the Frontiers. Lacking money, they’re reluctant arms dealers in The Living Weapons. Lacking options, they turn investigators slash bait on corrupt Rubanis in The Circles of Power. The apparent descent into hell of the two former agents is the chance for the authors to study the ambiguities of our world, either directly or through the lens of alien civilisations; along with the ambiguity – pragmatism versus heroism – of the titular character, saved from a fall from grace by his ever irreproachable partner.

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.
