    Written by Pierre Christin. Art and cover by Jean-Claude Mezieres.

    The second collection of Valerian and Laureline's adventures in English, with three stories and the second part of the interview with Luc Besson and the authors. In this book you will find volumes 3 to 5: The Land Without Stars, Welcome to Alflolol and Birds of the Master - three stories that introduce the societal criticism aspect of the series. Battle of the sexes, totalitarianism and extreme productivism are lambasted, but never at the expense of fantasy or of the action. And as they travel from world to distant world, Laureline becomes a truly equal partner, far from the stereotypical female sidekick roles of the time. Finally, the second part of the exclusive interview with the authors and director Luc Besson is followed by an in-depth portrait of Pierre Christin, the writer.

    This third book of the collected edition contains volumes 6 to 8: Ambassador of the Shadows (the story that directly inspired Luc Besson's film), On the False Earths and Heroes of the Equinox. Over the course of these titles, among the finest in the series, Laureline takes her rightful place as the brains of the outfit, while Valerian fully embraces his role as anti-hero: always brave, but often a bit out of his depth. This volume features the final part of the interview with the authors and Luc Besson, and an in-depth portrait of Jean-Claude Mézières, the artist.

    Volume 4 - 1st printing.

    Written by Pierre Christin. Art and cover by Jean-Claude Mezieres.

    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.

    Hardcover, 9-in., X 12-in., 216 pages, full color.

    Volume 5 - 1st printing.

    Written by Pierre Christin. Art and cover by Jean-Claude Mezieres.

    In this volume of the Collection you will find books 13 to 15, and 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 civilzsations; along with the ambiguity of the titular character, saved from a fall from grace by his ever irreproachable partner.

    Volume 6 - 1st printing.

    Written by Pierre Christin. Art and cover by Jean-Claude Mezieres.

    Our two former agents, now idle, create their own adventures by helping their fellow beings, and resume their quest to find Earth. With volumes 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, the son of Galaxity earns back his status as a hero and savior. Then, the united couple faces adversity and the hardships of parenthood (even temporary) together. Finally, they're back on the trail of the vanished future Earth, paving the way for the last cycle and the saga's conclusion.

    Volume 7 - 1st printing.

    Written by Pierre Christin. Art and cover by Jean-Claude Mezieres.

    The last volume of this magnificent collection, which includes the final three books of the main saga, bringing to a close the adventures of Valerian, Laureline and the vanished Earth in style. Mézières and Christin have done something that almost no one had done before: after 43 years at the helm, they decided of their own accord to conclude the adventures of their heroes. The three titles in this volume (At the Edge of the Great Void, The Order of the Stones, and The Time Opener) bring things full circle and establish the definitive end of the story. As the extras explain, the very nature of their universe, full of time travel and the occasional paradox, leaves the door wide open to new possibilities: anthologies of flashbacks, one-shots by other creators, and adaptations in different media, such as ... cinema!

    Hardcover, 9-in., X 12-in., 176 pages, full color.
