Valerian: The Complete Collection, Volume 1
by Pierre Christin and Jean-Claude Mézières
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
I would definitely have gotten on better with this if I were still a child. As much as I appreciated the adventure, I found I was a bit bored. The story is a little too straight forward, and the text is too dense. Plus, I rarely get excited for sci-fi. The story/ideals feel somewhat modern (which was a nice surprise), and then art reminds you of when it was written. I did hear that the art improves over time. Overall, not a bad title, and it is certainly in the running for Christmas presents to my younger relatives.
