- Full Description
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. Characterized 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, the 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. 11 pages of essay and special art, by the recently departed Stan Barets. It also presents a complete bonus story, the 8-page stand-alone story apart from the Valerian series, "Space Grunts." It's drawn by Mezieres and first appeared in Metal Hurlant#7, 1976, then was translated and got the honor of appearing in the very first issue of the U.S. counterpart of Metal Hurlant, Heavy Metal #1.
