I sometimes use the phrase Bande Designee to separate the French/Belgian etc graphic novels from English and US comics. There is definitely a difference between the two and this epitimies this, I first really realised this when I first visited Paris and there was a shop on the corner and I got to see the variety there.

This is a science fiction story with time travel and a lot of crazyness, it's interesting and it's both Valerian and Laureline are quite strong people and while there's romance it isn't introusive into the story.

It starts with Valerian and Laureline meeting in the past and travels through the 80s and into the future where they meet several enemies and try to ensure that their present happens. Features the stories Bad Dreams; City of Shifting Waters and The Empire of a Thousand Planets.

I want to read more of these. ( )
