Get All Caught Up On “Valerian” Before Luc Besson’s Film Blows Your Mind This July

 

This first volume of the collection contains books 1 and 2 of the series: The City of Shifting valerianWaters – in its original two parts, 9 pages longer format – and The Empire of a Thousand Planets. It also includes book 0, Bad Dreams, translated into English for the first time: the very first adventures of our two heroes, published after City and retroactively numbered. Finally, linking the volumes of this collection together, a long, exclusive interview with the authors and director Luc Besson is illustrated with new art as well as numerous sketches, studies and photographs from the latter’s upcoming big-screen adaptation.

 

In this book you will find 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. And as they 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.

Valerian-2

This third book of the collected edition contains volumes 6 to 8: Ambassador of the Shadows – the story that directly inspired Luc Besson’s film – On the False Earths and Heroes of the Equinox. Over the course of these titles, among the finest in the series, Screen Shot 2017-04-07 at 8.26.25 PMLaureline takes her rightful place as the brains of the outfit, while Valerian fully embraces his role as anti-hero: always brave, but often a bit out of his depth. You will also find the end of the interview with Luc Besson and the authors, and an in-depth portrait of Jean-Claude Mézières, the artist.

All three of these books can be ordered HERE.  This should tie you over just fine until Luc Besson’s version hits the big screen on July 21st.

Dark Hall Mansion/ Jeff Granito’s New Print, “Happiness Is Snoopy” Put A Smile On Our Face

Since making his first appearance on October 4, 1950, Snoopy has been engaging fans all over the globe.  His timeless appeal resonates fondly with me as he always brings back fond memories of my youth.  Today, Dark Hall Mansion and Southern California artist, Jeff Granito have unveiled a new print that pays tribute to everyone’s favorite beagle titled, “Happiness Is Snoopy.”  Here is the official announcement.

Dark Hall Mansion has so been looking forward to finally debuting artist Jeff Granito’s amazing “HAPPINESS IS SNOOPY” official Peanuts limited edition print release available Tuesday, April 11th, at 12:30 PM-PST!

Snoopy-regular
“HAPPINESS IS SNOOPY”

This very special edition is being deliberately released immediately after our Dave Perillo “PEANUTS: THROUGH THE YEARS” sale so Perillo buyers might be able to purchase and add Jeff’s “HAPPINESS IS SNOOPY” prints and so combine for only one shipping fee. This offer is of course applicable to any buyer newly purchasing Jeff’s edition and wishing to also add Dave Perillo’s print.

As all Jeff Granito fans know, particularly from his extensive work with Disney, Jeff’s bold linework and intense use of color are hallmarks of his style and aesthetic approach yet even we weren’t ready for the lush, rich composition he turned in! Everyone rather halted, mouths open with a collective “WOW” on seeing his final piece. We absolutely loved it!! The tight composition, the classic yet contemporary rendering, the charm of Snoopy’s arcing storyline touching on varied classic moments that so inform and define Snoopy’s singular personality, and of course, Jeff’s echoing of the classic Charles M. Schulz book that’s now 50+ years old and still bringing joy to new generations.

Snoopy-variant-pink

Observant Peanuts fans will also recognize Jeff’s inclusion of Snoopy elements within the print’s corners referencing classic Snoopy moments from both the Peanuts films and Schulz strips as well. The typewriter that so famously clacks out Snoopy’s “It Was a Dark and Stormy Night,” ice skates from his flawless pond cruising, gear from his ease with all sports, and of course, his Joe Cool glasses. Which brings us to Jeff’s beautiful and stunning Variant Joe Cool blue and pink editions which include a special alternate rendition of Jeff’s main artwork to showcase the coolest beagle to ever rock a pair of shades, Snoopy and his feathered friend, Woodstock, are pure laid back attitude. In a gorgeous deep jazz blue or hot pink, you decide which version you most like because we couldn’t!

Remember, DHM will combine shipping for Dave Perillo’s Snoopy prints, which we featured HERE, and ship them WITH your Jeff Granito Snoopy prints to help save on shipping!  Simply follow the directions highlighted above in red.

“HAPPINESS IS SNOOPY” limited edition Jeff Granito prints go on sale Tuesday, April 11th, on DHM’s OFFICIAL STORE PAGE
at 12:30 PM-PST!
