Mitchell ; foreword by Will Eisner ; introduction by Daniel Riche. -- Montreal : Dargaud Canada, 1981. -- 52 p. : col. ill. ; 29 cm. -- (Valerian Spatiotemporal Agent) -- Serialized in Heavy Metal in 1981. -- Includes biographical sketches of Mézières and Christin. -- Translation of: L'ambassadeur des ombres, the sixth album in the original series. -- Science fiction genre. -- Call no.: PN6748.V3A513 1981

Summary: Laureline and Valerian are given the honor of transporting Earth's ambassador to Central Point, where it is to be Earth's turn to preside over the governing body there. Central Point is a millennia-old meeting place with segments built by every known spacefaring civilization, which is governed by a panel of ambassadors with a rotating chairmanship. Just before they arrive, the ambassador gives them instructions. The ambassador says that since the galaxy is so anarchic, Earth plans to take control and straighten things up. Certain other races are prepared to back Earth's grab for power. Valerian and Laureline are to be his bodyguards and not take initiative. Laureline is given a "grumpy converter" as a source of funds for the undertaking. They have no sooner landed than the ambassador is kidnapped by mercenaries. Valerian manages to grab their ship and get taken along, and Laureline is left with a protocol officer whose buffet has been ruined. Three Shingouz come to visit and to sell information. For 1500 pearls, which the grumpy converter creates from a sample they provide, Laureline gets a map of Central Point and advice to contact some mercenaries called Kamuniks. Laureline goes to find them, and Captain Protocol goes along, though protesting that leaving one's own segment just isn't done. The passageways between the segments are maintained by a race called the Zools, who don't talk or interfere. Luckily the Zools are oxygen breathers, so humans have no trouble moving around. The Kamuniks are centaurs who greet Laureline by using her as a ball in a game like polo. For 100 blood-and-guts tabs fabricated by the grumpy converter, the Kamuniks advise Laureline to seek the Suffuss segment where Bagoulin mercenaries are gathering. The Suffuss run a house of ill repute, but Laureline resists their blandishments. In exchange for a batch of aphrodisiac tablets from the grumpy converter, Laureline is given a disguise as a female Bagoulin so she can overhear that Valerian and the ambassador are in the hands of the Groubos. For a bit of time after making the aphrodisiacs, the converter is no longer grumpy. Another thousand pearls to the Shingouz and she learns that the Groubos must be communicated to through Zuurs Pilots, a kind of symbiotic jellyfish. Laureline goes to the Groubos segment, grabs a jellyfish and puts it over her head, but the information is not specific enough. A homeless man comes along, and for an armload of shellfish created by the grumpy converter he leads Laureline and Colonel Protocol to the Gnarfs-Dreamers. At about this time Valerian and the ambassador come out of stasis and are able to communicate with each other, and the ambassador says that there are ten thousand Earth warships ready to surround Central Point. Valerian and the ambassador find themselves on an ancient planet of people who consider themselves shadows, but who are of the race that originated Central Point. They watch things, but don't interfere unless a single power tries to impose its rule. The ambassador listens to their arguments and has a change of heart. Meanwhile the Zools are massing in the passageways with weapons. The converter fills a container with coins, and the Gnarfs-Dreamers show Laureline and the protocol officer how to get to the planet of the shadows. The four Earth people are reunited, and Valerian calls himself a hero. The ambassador goes to the council to give his speech. The Zools, however, have decided to reestablish a moral code, and have convinced the council to expel the Earth delegation for 100 years. Laureline calls in the warships to help in the evacuation, then shuts down one of the engines of their ship so the grumpy converter can recharge.

   Carlangas find their friend in the carpentry shop, drinking
   liquor. Ernestillo says that if his father can see his wife
   and talk to her when he's drunk, he wants to do it too and
   talk to his mother. When the boys take the bottle from him,
   Ernestillo attacks with a hammer and manages to knock
   himself out. His friends put him in his bed, and return to
   school. The teacher wants to know what they found, and they
   say Ernestillo wasn't home. The teacher doesn't believe
   them, and questions them until he gets the truth. The
   teacher rushes to the carpentry shop, sees Ernestillo
   unconscious, and calls an ambulance. The boys wait at the
   hospital while the teacher looks for Mr. Vargas, the
   missing father of Ernestillo. The news that his son is in
   the Red Cross hospital shocks Mr. Vargas, and hearing that
   Ernestillo was trying to see his mother fills him with
   shame. In the hospital, Ernestillo recovers. The teacher
   brings Mr. Vargas to his son, and he begs his son's
   forgiveness. -- Call no.: PN6790.M44M433no.7

   "The Flight of the Silver Saucers" (Captain Wings) 10 p. in
   Wings Comics, no. 112 (1950). -- Title from cover. --
   Though the art is substantially the same, this story is a
   thorough re-write of the Captain Wings story in Wings
   Comics, no. 53 (Jan. 1945), where it is signed "L. Elias."
   -- Summary: "Madam X" is a grounded bomber upon which
   "whiz-bombs" have been inappropriately mounted. It has been
   damaged and its crew is injured, and the plane is scheduled
   to be dismantled. A Japanese Zero crash-lands near the
   base, and a woman survives, managing to make the men think
   they've captured secret plans. After the squadron has left
   to take advantage of the plans, the woman steals a gun and
   kills the radio operator. The crew of Madam X figures out
   what has happened, and leaves sick bay in a suicide mission
   to spring the ambush the Japanese have set up. On page 7, a
   Japanese radioman says, "Silver disks-- our greatest
   arsenal gone! Shoot down that plane at any cost!" The
   whiz-bomb shown in p. 1 does seem to be disc-shaped, though
   from the title and cover art we would expect flying saucer
   UFOs. -- Call no.: PN6728.1.F5W5no.112

   script ; Jerry Grandenetti, art. 13 p. in All American Men
   of War, no. 90 (Mar./Apr. 1962). -- Summary: Johnny leaves
   his patrol when Tex spots an unknown Mustang about to be
   ambushed by a Messerschmitt. It turns out the Mustang pilot
   didn't need help, but when Johnny returns to his flight
   it's surrounded by German fighters. Johnny's unexpected
   return saves the day, and back at the base the new pilot
   reports. His name is Lt. Tom Talon, and like Cloud he is
   Native American. The other pilots observe the meeting of
   the two men with these comments: "Look at the dead-pan way
   those two are looking at each other!" "Just like Indians!
   Never showing what they feel!" We learn that as boys the
   two men played together on the reservation, and that
   Talon's brother died during one of their games and Cloud is
   unfairly blamed for the death. Talon has sworn to kill
   Cloud, though the other men don't know this. On the next
   mission Johnny Cloud makes Talon his wingman, demoting a
   disapproving Tex to no. 3. Talon saves Cloud's life after
   first putting it in jeopardy. The next day Cloud saves
   Talon's life nearly at the expense of his own, and lands
   barely alive in enemy territory. Talon lands to pick him
   up, and they make it to safety even though being fired upon
   by a German tank. Talon considers the fact that Cloud saved
   his life to be payment of the debt for his brother's life.
