      I loved this series as a teen and I still like it a lot Of course one can not treat this story as a serious sci fi it s of adventure fiction for kids teens disguised as space opera than anything else It s light and humorous although not HAHA funny with gorgeous graphics It s a really fast read and if you re into comic books you simply have to read it Know your classics P.S So can t wait for this movie But I hate the idea that they made Laureline blonde

      Mislio sam, zbog naziva, da je ovo glavna prica koja je inspirisala film ali sem velikog bazara drugih slicnosti nema.Sdruge strane stip kao strip je odlican Fina prica sa puno ideja, lepi crtezi sa par odlicnih dizajniranih panela, narocito kostima i pejzaza Tempo je brz posto na zalost nemaju previse strana na raspolaganju cija je ideja da ogranici evropske crtace na 50 strana tako da mnogo detalja same price bude zaobidjeno Ali ope vrlo zabavno i jedan od stripova koji cu ponovo citati.

      Despite the title, this book is like planetary romance than space opera Time travel capability on protagonist s ship is just a gimmick I still don t understand the limitation of the time travel ships of Space Time Agency, and if the limitation has been explained, maybe I missed them maybe it is explained in another book of the series The one strong point of this book is the planetary romance theme through the adventure plot Oh boy, how I spent hours of my life just watching the art of the exoti [...]

      Comics have had a huge influence in my life I learnt to read from them with my grandad and they literally peopled my childhood, with statues and wall paintings of famous comics all around Brussels I kid you not There is even a museum dedicated to them, housed in a Horta building famous art nouveau architect , where you are welcomed by Tintin s red and white rocket Valerian was in my radar but never one of my favourites, although I enjoyed the few I did read Queue a few years, or two decades, and [...]

    5. Jenan says:

      There s too many walls of text, lots of cliches, and the characters are pretty bland Honestly, if I didn t need a book becoming a movie in 2017 for my reading challenge, I would have probably passed it over Some of the background art was pretty good though.

    6. Andre says:

      I wanted to read this because of the title similarities with Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets, which is based on this series However, when you see the trailer and compare it with this, I doubt there is much in common with that In fact they look totally different Which I hope means the movie is different from this.Sure this started to feel pretty different from volume 0 and 1, but over time considering how fast rain comes and turns into ice rain that produces giant ice crystals and how [...]

    7. Gretchen says:

      A short space adventure There is little depth of characters or plot There are some interesting parallels to Star Wars that makes you think perhaps George Lucas was a fan I read this to hopefully have some background for the new movie coming out I plan to read this to my daughter age 5 as Star Wars is one of her favorite films I think she ll love Laureline eventhough she doesn t actually do much in the adventure.

    8. Derek Royal says:

      In many ways a ambitious narrative than the previous volume.

    9. William Fuentes says:

      Better than the first one Pretty entertaining and cool artwork for something from 1971 Can definitely see the influence it had on Star Wars.

      Luc Bessonin ohjaamana elokuvana valkokankaalle l hiaikoina ilmestyv Tuhannen planeetan valtakunta Otava, 1975 on j rjestyksess n toinen Valerian albumi Visuaalisesti ja sarjakuvakerronnallisesti albumi on melkoisen hieno, mutta tarina itsess n ei ollut minusta kovin kummoinen Nostalgiapisteit k n ei heru, kun en n ist lapsena my sk n kamalasti perustanut.

      I like this adventure better than the first and I like the color palette better than the first while reading this comic, I was looking at the illustrations so much Especially since at the back of the book there is a page that compares images from the comic to stills from Star Wars, it was sort of odd reading this knowing it was an inspiration for it During merchant scenes, I was particularly thinking of Star Wars Overall, this series is fun It s not great in terms of plot, at least so far, but h [...]

      Las primeras p ginas con su descripci n de la capital del Imperio son memorables los paisajes, los mercadillos, la arquitectura, los cascos de los Entendidosy adoro a Laurie A Partir de la mitad de la historia el gui n flojea bastante, y los di logos ocupan demasiado espacio pero aquella imaginaci n desbordante del principio no se me borra de la retina.

      Ceci est la premi re BD de Val rian que j ai lu a fait des ann es que je m attend a en lire un et j aurai du commencer plus t t Ce n tait simplement pas une s rie que je retrouvait dans mon enfance Quand je me suis rende compte que l artiste, Jean Claude M zi res, a travailler sur le film 5th Element j ai eu un int r t dans cette BD mais je n ai j avais fait le travail de le retrouver Avec la sortie de l adaptation de Val rian de Luc Besson ce fut un peu plus facile a retrouver ce livre.Il y a q [...]

      Gorgeous, detailed art and all the most bizarre little touches like a hail storm that turns into flower petals and, oh, a planet of stone colossuses that cry fat tears which can grant immortality It s a world that takes diversity of experience as its starting point and never loses that.Now, there are clunky things lots of expository dialog, that often doesn t expose that much Laureline, despite occasionally getting to spunkily say here press this button Ha I am competent doesn t do much besides [...]

      This book can be read as a stand alone And I m in love Every comic graphic novel I have read so far I haven t read many always ends with a cliff hanger or with a sort of an ending not really to be continued type of conclusion Sure this one can be said to also have an open ending since there is a next volume, but you can totally be satisfied by its we return to earth and mission accomplished happy ending.The story is fun and light even when the characters get apprehended They seem to always find [...]

      The I dive back in the Ravian Valerian universe, the I get curious about Besson s take Can t wait to see the finished movie.But re reading these comics, makes me also wonder if I shouldn t buy them in their original French version The Dutch translation feels sluggish using a language that is way too formalised and misses dynamism and fun.What I really love about this series is how it doesn t restrict itself and allows for the most fantastic of scenes and crazy species, habits, etc this is Spac [...]

      Valerian dan Lorelain kali ini mendapat tugas untuk mencari info mengenai sebuah kekaisaran berperadaban tua namun masih belum mampu melakukan perjalanan lintas ruang dan waktu apakah kekaisaran itu merupakan ancaman bagi Galaxity Ternyata kekaisaran tersebut didominasi oleh kaum enlightened yang menjadi kaum berkasta tinggi, mendekati kasta kaum ningrat Kaum tersebut melakukan pembatasan penguasaan pengetahuan bagi rakyat Syrte, dan menggantikan kedudukan ilmu pengetahuan dengan agama.Dalam pen [...]

      Keeping in mind that this comic book series is from the early seventies it has been up to now quite entertaining The adventures are fun although not in the least complicated I think it s something I would have very much enjoyed in my pre teen years I m looking forward to seeing where the comics lead If they perhaps get any darker or complicated as they mature Which is not a must, I m just used to graphic novels specifically written for adults and it does feel like the target group for these s [...]

    21. RhC says:

      Okay, so this is the second installment as well as the second issue I ve read Again, I m not into comic books graphic novels, whatev any HOWEVER, back in the day these would have definately been in my wheelhouse even the time period it was written would have been closer, thus they would have generated even greater interest.That being said, although obviously dated, the prescience of the subject matter in this as well as the first issue is actually quite remarkable And the clothing and the langua [...]

    22. Ahdom says:

      This is a badass comic for 1967 Tgis graphic novel inspired Star Wars as well as some other properties claimed to use the novel for inspiration as well In fact, the story in this one reminded me of some of the elements in Beneath the Planet of the Apes It made me wonder if this inspired that film Then I started thinking that the atmosphere of these comics have alot of elements found in the Boulle novel Planet of the Apes I have not seen the Valerian film adaptation, but I hope it keeps the spiri [...]

    23. Tess says:

      This is my first comic of the series I read it because of the upcoming movie The art is wonderful and the depicted world is colourful and fantastic However, I thought the story was a bit clumsy and overly simple And I m not sure if it s just me, but Valerian often seemed to look down on Laureline for being annoying or trying to mansplain stuff to her, but yeah I m not sure It s a solid read, though, and I m interested to read some of the series.

    24. Jon Shanks says:

      Better flow than the first volume, but still a little stilted and very much of its time, but it is readable enough and there are some beautifully rendered pages, especially the full page splashes and cityscapes Overall, a decent read but nothing earth shattering or groundbreaking about it There tends yo be lots of exposition which can fill panels with too much text to the detriment of the art, but that is made up for on other pages Enjoyable, but not enough to draw me in to reading .

    25. Warren says:

      Great concept and poetic to ideas we struggle with today in society This was what I was hoping the movie was going to be about but I suppose it touched too close to home for some peopleor they neglected the source material, not sure which is worse Solid read for sci fi fans and anyone looking for a heartbreaking tragedy in the result of pride.

    26. Andy says:

      Aiming to read through the series before the movie comes out, and enjoyed this.Excellent artwork by M zi res that goes hand in hand with a quick but entertaining story by Christin I liked the banter between Valerian and Laureline, and hope that s replicated in the upcoming movie too.A good Sci Fi read Looking forward to reading the next book in the series.

    27. Evelyne says:

      Al heel wat beter dan de vorige twee albums nrs 0 1 , maar nog steeds veel te veel expositie m.a.w tekst, tekst, tekst die evengoed door wat extra tekeningen zou kunnen uitgelegd worden.Al bij al het beste album dat ik tot nu toe las in deze reeks, hoewel je de ontknoping al van ver ziet aankomen

    28. Cecilia Rodriguez says:

      I bought the book because of the movie that will openthis July.Originally published in 1969, as a French comic strip, the storyand illustrations are a little dated On the back cover it states that the illustrator Jean Claude Mezieres designed the sets for the movie The Fifth Element I think the average movie audience will be fine if the do not read the graphic novel first.

    29. William Pereira says:

      A HQ que inspirou Star Wars toma rumos mais criativos, aventureiros e maiores nessa aventura que foi a escolhida para a adapta o de cinema um passatempo divertido e criativo Agora resta esperar pelos pr ximos dois livros com o resto das hist rias que seram lan ados at o fim do ano.
