A beautifully produced Artist's Edition-style book loaded with extra features!
From the publisher:
Brooklyn Station Terminus Cosmos is the 10th installment of the Valerian Saga. Pre published in the monthly magazine Pilote in 1981, we're following Valérian and Laureline in their journey, right where we left them off in Metro Châtelet Direction Cassiopeia. This 2nd book is the end of an earth-centered diptych where the quality of the scenario by Pierre Christin is at its finest. Our two heroes being separated has allowed the writer to reveal more of their own personalities. Mezières and his graphic prowesses, on the other hand, managed to introduce a kind of mystery to this chapter split between outer space and 1980's Paris with its perfectly reproduced Centre Pompidou.
