 Look what I found in the attic. This is a collected volume of five issues of Metal Hurlant in its original french language. I can't understand much (if any) but still, it's nice to look at. Ten points to the anonymous commenter who noticed that the Blade Runner cover is actually issue 79, not 78. There must be a misprint here because there is no issue 77 inside the book, we start at 78 and end at 82. The chapter that constitutes issue 79 has a large Blade Runner feature featuring stills, artwork and a nice photo of Ridley Scott with Philip K. Dick (who died six months before the magazine was published). For the curious, the other cover reproductions aren't anything special, issues 80 and 82 for example feature Dragonslayer and Tron promo photos on the covers.
