d’Adele Blanc-Sec Comic Book Adaptation Will Debut in France

Director Luc Besson opened his adaptation of the steampunk comic book, Les Aventures extraordinaires d’Adele Blanc-Sec (The Extraordinary Adventures of Adele Dry-White), in France last week. The English-subtitled trailer embedded above has comic book fans around the globe excited.

Fantagraphics Books will release the first volume of Jacques Tardi‘s comic book series in English soon, but the film’s U.S. distribution is still uncertain.

The io9 blog has more details: “The story focuses on our heroine Adele Blanc-Sec as she blows the lid on occult schemes, uncovers secret society cover ups, and acts like an all around bad ass around dinosaurs while the menfolk cower behind her. Here are four clips, and an subtitled trailer from her feature film, let the archaeological shenanigans begin!”
