The appearance and personalities of Valerian and Laureline are also different than you might expect after watching the characters of the same names on-screen.

Pierre Christin, Jean-Claude Mézières (Illustrator). This particular book, "The City of Shifting Waters" is Volume 1 in the Valerian and Laureline collected album series, and marks one of the first complete Valerian stories. Jerome Saincantin (Translator). Valerian is a spatio-temporal agent, so all of the stories range through, well, space and time. We bounce back and forth between the future, the past, and the present, often trailing bad guys who are out to manipulate the past for their own nefarious purposes.

  • I decided to get the first Valerian book, because the trailer for the movie came out yesterday and I was intrigued. It was entertaining and it's a great example of classic crazy science fiction. However, there is little in the way of character development and the novel as a whole is unexpectedly short.
    This was more of a single issue of a comic book than an actual full graphic novel and I hope that the movie focuses more on telling us about the two main characters. I am still going to get the next book though, because I was entertained and the possibilities for stories in this world are unlimited. All in all, I definitely recommend The City of Shifting Waters if you're a fan of science fiction and you have an hour to kill.

  • Interesting storyline, although the translated dialog seems a bit stilted at times.
    Unfortunately, Amazon doesn't seem to have this flagged as a comic so the Comixology tech to jump from panel to panel doesn't kick in; to read this you must constantly scroll and zoom manually (like our ancestors did).

  • The Kindle edition of this struggles a bit.

    It is possible to zoom in on the page, but the whole comicbook format isn't well supported, at least for legacy comics.

    It leaves the reader with having to scroll around the zoomed page to follow the frames in the correct order.

    I'm not sure there IS a solution short of possibly having a setting to rotate the image 90 degrees (which would allow for SOME zoom and then scrolling only along one axis to read it).

    The story itself is a well-rendered translation of the original French that I bought to remind myself that the movie really does blow goats as badly as I thought it did. The original Valerian was a mouth-breathing muscle-head, not a genius wimp. Not sure why the change for the film was necessary as the comic in its original form sold quite well and would play into the current "all men are garbage" mindset.

  • Well I got this for free on kindle. I probably would give a slightly lower rating if I had had to pay for it. The art was excellent, the story less so (it seemed more like an excuse for the the art, rather than an actually interesting story. Normally I would have read it a second time but the Kindle interface for the book was kind of glitchy and hard to use. It kept jumping to wrong box and I hard to put out some effort to get to where I needed to be.

  • Originally written in 1976, "The City of Shifting Waters" shows the far future heroes traveling back in time to experience the effects of a 1986 climate disaster on Earth. This graphic novel is nerdy and also pretty fun as an adventure. The story is almost more dialogue-heavy than you might expect from an Action comic. Keep in mind it's Sci-Fi. We need to know how the worlds and technology in them work to follow along.

    The appearance and personalities of Valerian and Laureline are also different than you might expect after watching the characters of the same names on-screen. Valerian is square-jawed, tall, and friendly. Laureline is a good-hearted redhead. They aren't the calculating soldiers from Luc Besson's movie.

  • Seeing that the movie, "Valarian and the Planet of a Thousand Worlds," is coming out at the end of July, I thought I would check out this Series. Even though this story came out in 1976, it was well paced and kept up my interest. It gives me a good incentive to check the rest of the Five Volume Series. I highly recommend this story.

  • As the uncredited source material for Star Wars, this graphic novel series deserves to be read by high science fiction fans everywhere. The characters and plot are surprisingly deep, with dimensional time travel, political economic evolution, and futuristic technology usually found in the company of Clarke and Asimov.

    If you wonder ever wondered how something as brilliant as the Star Wars trilogy lead to Jar Jar Binks, I submit it is easily explained by Lucas attempting to invent characters from his own imagination instead of cribbing from a better source.

  • Clearly drawn illustrations with a compelling sci-fi setup for future tails. Both Valerian and Laureline have definitive voices and characters which is not always constant with comic book heroines. So far, I would even call it tween friendly.
