'Valerian and Laureline: Shingouzlooz Inc.' by Wilfrid Lupano with art by Mathieu Lauffray is my first exposure to this famous series that spawned a blockbuster movie. This isn't the original team that created the series, but I had a good time reading it.
When Valerian and Laureline take on a bounty missing to pick up a robot named Mr. Zi-Pone, it's going to be tricky. It's compounded by Zi-Pone's offer of bribery of a rare and highly sought after fish. When the Shingouzlooz crash land on the planet, things get even messier. With the fate of Earth on the line, can Valerian focus on what he needs to focus on?
At the beginning, there is a brief introduction by the artist. They mention that this was not going to be a mimic of the original series. Having never read the original series, I don't know how close they got to accomplishing that, but this one was a crazy caper of spinning plates that threatened to topple over. The art fits the story very well, and I'm glad I got to read this.
I received a review copy of this graphic novel from Europe Comics and NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. Thank you for allowing me to review this graphic novel.
