Created by the French cartoonist Jacques Tardi, The Extraordinary Adventures of Adele Blanc-Sec is set in Paris before World War I and follows the heroine, Adele, as she becomes embroiled in a series of mysterious and fantastic adventures--from battling a revived pterodactyl to a demon in the Eiffel Tower. This preview includes pages from the first story, “Pterror Over Paris,” in which the pterodactyl in question comes back to life and reeks havoc in Paris. Fantagraphics will release the first volume of the series in December.
