Luc Besson is bringing the legendary sci-fi comic Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets to the big screen, so we got a first-hand example from the man who brought the series to life on the page.

Artist Jean-Claude Mezieres, who created the iconic look of the Valerian comic that inspired the upcoming film, chatted with us about the look and vibe of the series — and even sketched us out a drawing of main characters Valerian and Laureline in real time. It’s a chance to see a true master of the medium at work, and a bit of insight into what to expect from this franchise before Besson’s film hits next year.
