EXTRAORDINARY ADVENTURES OF ADELE BLANC-SEC BD
From Shout! Factory!
As the tale opens, Adele, a redheaded , wisecracking, hard-living adventurer-cum-novelist living in pre-WWI France is on a mission in Egypt. She is attempting to retrieve a sarcophagus and tote it back to Western Europe, while fending off complications wrought by her nemesis, archaeologist Dieuleveult. She succeeds on both fronts, but runs headfirst into another issue: a Parisian scientist with the power to heal Adele's comatose sister has accidentally let loose an ancient Pterodactyl above the Parisian skies. While a zany detective and a hunter attempt to eliminate the creature, the villains turn up yet again and try to thwart Adele's long-term plans. Luc Besson (Leon the Professional, The Fifth Element
) directs this effects-laden adaptation of Jacques Tardi's classic graphic novels. Available in Blu-Ray and standard DVD formats.
