Finally got to the story that inspired the beautiful Luc Beson movie and have to say it was a fairly loose adaption Once again we have a light story that takes a back seat to the imaginative backdrops, alien designs and implied histories of the species It s a shame none of these stories are expanded into multiple issues.Still if you love the detailsthan the overall picture it s still a great read. This volume inspired for good Luc Besson s movie a well done mix of mistery, police investigations, marvelous, romance, a LaurelineandBarbarella like, political manifesto, awesome artworks and an heart felt tribute to diversity.Gettin better and better This volume inspired for good Luc Besson s movie a well done mix of mistery, police investigations, marvelous, romance, a LaurelineandBarbarella like, political manifesto, awesome artworks and an heart felt tribute to diversity.Gettin better and better The film Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets adaptation was definitely made based on this story It manage to carry most of the elements, while still being different and bizarre enough to keep both of them interesting I really enjoyed the different feel of this series and the imaginative constructs of the authors. The universe is vast, and intelligent life has arisen on many worlds Over millennia, these different lifeforms have spread out from their points of origin and met each other Sometimes, these meetings have led to friendly interaction, sometimes they have ended in interspecies war No one remembers precisely when, or who did it, but an artificial habitable environment was created to serve as a meeting place for diplomats Each new species has added on to that space station to create Point Centra The universe is vast, and intelligent life has arisen on many worlds Over millennia, these different lifeforms have spread out from their points of origin and met each other Sometimes, these meetings have led to friendly interaction, sometimes they have ended in interspecies war No one remembers precisely when, or who did it, but an artificial habitable environment was created to serve as a meeting place for diplomats Each new species has added on to that space station to create Point Central, our last, best hope for peace.Now at last it is Earth s turn to preside over the Council in the Hall of Screens, and the new ambassador from that planet has big plans Plans so big, he needs to be guarded by top spatio temporal agents Valerian and Laureline.Valerian and Laureline is a French comic book series originally published from 1967 to 2010, very popular in European comics, and an influence on the look and feel of the movie The Fifth Element A new live action movie version is coming out this summer, so I thought I d check in on the source material.The future Earth civilization, Galaxity, is based on time travel technology, which their space travel utilizes for faster than light speed This technology is dangerous in the wrong hands, thus the need for special time space agents.Valerian is a native of the 28th Century, and initially is quite respectful of authority, and does not question his orders, even when they seem ethically dubious That said, he is a good hearted fellow who does the right thing as he sees it when the chips are down While in Middle Ages France, he recruited Laureline as a guide, and she proved so effective that he brought her home with him as an agent.While Laureline is a fast learner who quickly adjusts to her new surroundings, she has an outsider s view of them A fiery redhead, Laureline is impulsive and suspicious of authority figures, especially when their behavior is fishy She initially was scheduled to be a girl of the week but was so well received by the audience that she became the co star Earth s ambassador initially emphasizes the ass , but that quickly becomes moot, as both he and Valerian are abducted by mysterious parties immediately upon arrival at Point Central Laureline must track them down through the labyrinthine construction and clashing cultures of the diplomatic station Comic relief is provided by a cowardly protocol officer Laureline dragoons into service as her sidekick.The story becomes something of a shaggy dog when things going on in the background make the heroes actions irrelevant in the big picture, but this volume is important to the continuity because it introduces two recurring elements The Grumpy Transmuter from Bluxte is an astonishingly rare animal that can create copies of any item it ingests since it s a tiny animal with a small mouth, it s limited to things like gems and pharmaceuticals Since the galactic community has no common currency, it s like a portable cash machine and becomes Laureline s pet Also, the Shingouz, greedy information brokers who will dispense helpful data in exchange for large payments Laureline becomes one of their favorite customers and they frequently appear in later stories.The art is good, with the setting allowing the artist to go wild with interesting alien designs I m not a fan of the coloring, though, which is often garish and inconsistent In particular, the humans often have bright orange skin.There s some violence, but it s non lethal, and one scene takes place in an alien brothel where we see some scantily clad aliens including Laureline in a disguise Say a PG 13 rating.Recommended to fans of science fiction adventure and or French comics This is the first graphic novel I ve ever read okay, so I m a book snob Didn t quite know what to make of it at first, though I was quickly enchanted by J.C M zi res fantastic illustration His creatures and settings seem endlessly imaginative and exquisitely rendered The English text seems to be a word for word translation from the French original and at times takes a bit of deciphering This is not altogether a bad thing, as it retains a flavor of the original The story is straight adven This is the first graphic novel I ve ever read okay, so I m a book

The English text seems to be a word for word translation from the French original and at times takes a bit of deciphering This is not altogether a bad thing, as it retains a flavor of the original The story is straight adventure,about perseverance and loyalty than theatrical heroics, and without any inane violence I m picking up the anti Gaullist message of the Valarien et Laureline series Plus a bit of second wave feminism I came to this graphic novel via the Luc Besson film He s a brilliant guy, and figured something he s passionate about is worth checking out Internet chatter has it that the upcoming movie Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets may be based on this issue of Val rian and Laureline so I thought I d read it English version before the movie comes out The main characters are amusing and there are numerous alien species Laureline s relationship with the grumpy transmuter from Bluxte is enjoyable I look forward to seeing how the relationship between Val rian

with protecting the new ambassador from Earth, Valerian is kidnapped alongside his charge in a lightning commando attack It s up to Laureline to do all the heavy lifting and slog through the seedy
