Pierre Christin: Time-Space

July 09, 2011  |     |     |   0 Comment


2017 will see a double celebration: fifty years of Valerian et Laureline, the cult comic strip by Pierre Christin, and the release of the film adapted from their adventures by Luc Besson, a huge fan of the two hero space-time agents. Tardi, Bilal, Mezieres, Goetzinger, Juillard… All these great illustrators would not be what they are without Pierre Christin, scriptwriter and indefatigable worker in the shadows. The writer took inspiration from current events, the rubble of Communism, cyber criminality and conflicts of interest to invent frightening or funny, and sometimes visionary, worlds.
