This time, it’s an official hero’s job for Valerian!
Every 100 years or so, the infertile people of Simlanne send their champions to the sacred island of Filene, where the best among them, chosen via a series of tests, will find and bring back the next generation. This cycle, though, the local heroes seem to fail repeatedly, and the aging Simlannians have sent for heroes from other worlds. Valerian, chosen to represent Earth, will have to overcome the tests and his competitors in a dangerous odyssey …
‘Kids will love it. Adults will love it. If you’ve never read Valerian, then here’s your chance – and you’ll find out why it is such an international hit! [Terry Hooper, Comic Bits Online]
