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.

Edge of the Great Void: Somewhere at the edge of known space is the Great Void. That inscrutable, shapeless, ever-changing place is where the expanding universe springs forth, where new planets and new life forms are created. It’s also, according to the gods of Hypsis, the place where Galaxity’s Earth was sent and is being kept prisoner. Valerian and Laureline begin a discreet investigation, but it doesn’t take long before they start finding obstacles in their path, placed by the rulers of Rubanis – and their mysterious master...

Order of the Stones: The expedition into the heart of the Great Void is launched, and Valerian and Laureline are on it. But in no time they’re facing the mysterious force that threatens the entire galaxy: the Wolochs, gigantic sentient monoliths dead set on destroying any civilization that might stand in the way of their domination. Our two human agents can’t hope to stop the Order of the Stones by themselves, but fortunately, they still have allies... Wonderful juxtaposition of fully painted pages interspersed with more typical comic art work.

Time Opener: The evil hordes of the Wolochs are rampaging through space, and everywhere death and destruction follow. But despite the despair of some and the betrayal of others, Valerian, Laureline and a few other brave souls are resisting. They're hoping to use a mysterious artifact, the Time Opener, to banish the giant stones and bring back Earth. But what price must they pay to do so? And what sort of Earth will they get back if they succeed? Final concluding volume in the series. Cool mix of painted pages with regular comics work.

No need for sadness, though. 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!

In fact, besides the fine Luc Besson film, we now have a new graphic novel by new creators, Valerian and Laurline Shingouzlooz Inc. by Wilfrid Lupano, with art by Mathieu Lauffray.
