In this sixth volume our two former agents, now idle, create their own adventures by helping their fellow beings, and resume their quest to find Earth.

In books 16 to 18 collected here, we find Valerian and Laureline suddenly rich beyond their wildest dreams, and this new situation brings the differences in their personalities in stark contrast: where Laureline remains true to herself and her love of life, Valerian finds himself idle and disoriented. Fortunately, when the former is kidnapped in Hostages of Ultralum, the son of Galaxity earns back his status as a hero and saviour. In the direct sequel, Orphan of the Stars, the united couple faces adversity and the hardships of parenthood (even temporary) together. Finally, In Uncertain Times brings them back on the trail of the vanished future Earth, paving the way for the last cycle and the saga’s conclusion. With, as always, essays by Stan Barets, here on the alien cast of the series and the authors’ various creations for the year 2000.

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.
