Additional Information

This show wasn't made by Heavy Metal, but it is loosely based on the story, "Valerian" by Pierre Christin and Jean-Claude Mézières, which the album, "Ambassador of the Shadows" was published in each issue from January to April 1981 of Heavy Metal. When first released in France, it was directed at a family friendly younger audience. But for some reason, when it released in America, it was given the rating TV-14.
Time Jam: Valerian & Laureline

Description On The Back Cover - The first rule of time travel is to never change anything. Otherwise, the resulting "butterfly effects" can ripple through time and wreak untold havoc on the unwritten future. But on his last test as a Space Time Agent, Valerian messes up. Not only does he save someone who would have been killed, but he'd have died himself if she hadn't rescued him! As a result, nothing in the future is where he left it, including the Earth! Now he and Laureline, his accidental passenger from 10th century France, have to put the universe back in order without writing themselves out of existence! Across a million worlds and an infinite number of possibilities, it's the ultimate adventure in time and space as the multi-verse from the groundbreaking graphic novels by Pierre Christin and THE FIFTH ELEMENT designer Jean-Claude Mézières becomes the stage for TIME JAM: VALERIAN & LAURELINE!
