Valérian, le plus grand space-opéra publié par des auteurs français, nous entraîne dans un monde et un futur lointains. Le duo est... constitué d'agents spatio-temporels : Valérian et Laureline. C'est à bord d'un vaisseau affrété par Galaxity, capitale de l'Empire Terrien, qu'ils se déplacent pour vivre des aventures hautes en couleur.
