Cinebook The 9th Art - Newsletter 107 - November 2016

Dear Reader,
This month has a bit of a Grim Reaper flavour to it. In Yakari, our young Sioux goes out to meet the lords of the plains, the mighty buffalo – the very animals his people depend on for food, furs and leather. Can there be friendship between hunter and prey?
In Damocles, Ellie is caught between love and death. Love between partners, love between mother and child ... and death, always threatening her client. Can she protect Ava against her unknown enemies – and at what cost?
Wayne Shelton is an old hand at the adventuring business. He´s cheated death many times. The first time it happened was in Vietnam, during the war. And now that distant past is coming back to haunt him, with a name he´d long thought buried...
Finally there´s Valerian and Laureline, and the two former agents of Galaxity are forced to take any old job these days. Everyone´s got to make a living, but ... is any work acceptable? Could this contract drive a wedge between our two heroes?
November with Cinebook: don´t catch your death – stay in with a good book!
Have we mentioned lately that Luc Besson is adapting Valerian and Laureline for the big screen? Yes? Oh. Well, allow us to reiterate, because, colour us excited, Luc Besson is making a Valerian movie! And the first trailer is out, and full of promise!
Chances are you´ve been exposed to it already, but in case you missed it, here´s a link to your 2.06 minutes of early Spatio-Temporal goodness:
Roll on July 2017!
