An apparently simple mission – apprehending a speculator-droid – turns into a race against time when the Shingouz drop in uninvited mid-arrest, begging Valerian and Laureline for protection against someone who means to kill them. To the agents' surprise, it's an old friend who soon pops up in hot pursuit, guns blazing. The ensuing shoot-out does little to simplify an alrea ...more

I haven't read the original series or watched the movie (because it looks terrible). However, this was a great first exposure to the series. It's got a fun Hitchhiker's Guide vibe to it, with a lot of goofy curve balls thrown at our characters as they try and complete their mission. I'll probably have to seek out some of the originals after checking this out. And maybe I'll even break down and try out the movie if it's in the same vein.

'Valerian and Laureline: Shingouzlooz Inc.' by Wilfrid Lupano with art by Mathieu Lauffray is my first exposure to this famous series that spawned a blockbuster movie. This isn't the original team that created the series, but I had a good time reading it.

When Valerian and Laureline take on a bounty missing to pick up a robot named Mr. Zi-Pone, it's going to be tricky. It's compounded by Zi-Pone's offer of bribery of a rare and highly sought after fish. When the Shingouzlooz crash lan

The creators of Valerian and Laureline, Mézière and Christin, ended the series in 2013 with the twenty-second volume, Memories from the Futures (see here). Then there was Luc Besson’s disappointing film adaptation. But now we apparently have the pair’s – that’s Valerian and Laureline, of course – further licensed adventures, which makes a point of attempting to be as much like the original as possible. And they pretty much succeed. Except, like the Edgar P Jacobs Studio picked up The Adventures ...more

I have not read the previous incarnations of Valerian comics nor had I seen the movie. So I was going into this fresh and with no expectations. Unfortunately, this wasn't my cup of tea. I'm not a big fan of slapstick comedy, where people do stupid things and expect good results anyway. I think Douglas Adams fans will find a lot to love with Shingaouzlooz but I found it a tedious read.

Valerian and Laureline are on a seemingly easy task to retrieve a piece of stolen tech in a vacation paradise, when next thing they know, their mission has taken a turn for the complicated and ridiculous- only the way it can for these two.

I first discovered Valerian a year or so ago as a movie trailer and I knew I had to know more. Once I discovered they were originally graphic novels in the 1970s, I got my grabby hand on the originals. Well, the stories were fun- full of action and

(Wow, turns out this has been a series since 1967! How have I never heard of it before? This means Han Solo could have been based on him instead of vice versa! And it was made into a film released this year?!!!
But for funsies’ sake, I’m leaving my original thoughts in.)
In a ship reminiscent of the Millennium Falcon, A Han Solo type and a beautiful redhead look for a cybernetic financial wizard. Once they find him, things get crazy.
It’s visually attractive, though not always log

This is a follow-up to the Pierre Christin and Jean-Claude Mezieres VALERIAN and LAURELINE stories, this time created by writer Wilfred Lupano and artist Mathieu Lauffreya. The idea was apparently to carefully pick authors and artists "not to continue the saga as such, but for a freestyle rereading of a universe conductive to any interpretation." This story is a time travel romp, well planned and fun, and pleasantly similar to the originals. From the Quantuna (tuna that migrate through the Quant ...more

Divertissant et dépaysant.

Il y'a de l'action, de l'humour et des surprises.

On ne s'ennuie pas et les dessins sont magnifiques.

Ce deuxième volume de la série “Valérian vu par” est beaucoup plus sérieux que le précédant, L’Armure du Jakolass par Manu Larcenet (que j’ai déjà commenté). L’humour y est plus subtile que l’humour parodique ou collégien de Larcenet, et plus en ligne avec ce que Mézières et Christin faisaient déjà dans Valérian. Le style de dessin de Lauffray est aussi très réaliste (plus réaliste même que le style de Mézières) et se démarque du style caricatural et rondelet de Larcenet.
