Luc Besson has directed a flim version of Jacques Tardi’s great comics heroine, Adéle Blanc-Sec, a sort of one woman BPRD of Steampunk. The fim has just been released in France but has no US distribution plans yet (Boooo!) Fantragraphics will release an Adele Blanc-Sec book later this year. More at io9.
PS: here’s the English language website for the film.
