Written by Pierre Christin
Art by Jean-Claude Mezieres
Collecting volumes 3 to 5: The Land Without Stars, Welcome to Alflolol and Birds of the Master, three stories that introduce the societal criticism aspect of the series; battle of the sexes, totalitarianism and extreme productivism are lambasted, but never at the expense of fantasy or of the action. As the two characters travel from world to distant world, Laureline becomes a truly equal partner, far from the stereotypical female sidekick roles of the time. Finally, the second part of the exclusive interview with the authors and director Luc Besson is followed by an in-depth portrait of Pierre Christin, the writer.
