We pick up a classic sci-fi series by reading “The City of Shifting Waters” by Pierre Christin and Jean-Claude Mezieres, the first volume of Valerian and Laureline. In this time-travel comic, spacio-temporal agents Valerian and Laureline use one gangster from the past to stop a gangster from the future in a destroyed US landscape. We talk about the unexpected lack of sexist, discuss the Luc Besson movie, and try to sort out what about this comic feels “European,” if anything. Plus, we talk about Thor: Ragnarok a bit!
