"Rangel Jr. Is my kind of guy, with a narrative style that would sit snuggly in between heavy metal and any film Kurt Russell was the star of in the 80s. It’s over-the-top, with cheesy dialogue and the unshakable feeling that this was a kid that really knew how to play with his toys. G.I. Joe definitely met the Transformers in this guy’s head, if you know what I’m saying?"

I posted a Valerian & Laureline story a while ago. Here's another sample from one of the later adventures, On the Frontiers. This particular bit was one of the main inspirations for The Fifth Element. (Oh, and be warned that there's a non-explicit depiction of a sexual assault in here.)

If you liked this excerpt, you can find the book at a reasonable price second-hand on Amazon.

This classic French BD, which inspired Star Wars and The Fifth Element, has never become very popular in the US, though quite a lot of it has been published here at one time or another. This one, though, is my own scanlation of a story that was never released in English (15 pp., ~8 MB; dial-uppers beware!).
