Both a rip-roaring adventure series set in pre-WWI Paris and a parody of the same genre, The Extraordinary Adventures of Adele Blanc-Sec has been enchanting, thrilling and puzzling readers worldwide for over four decades. In this first instalment, Adele becomes involved in an interlocking series of mysteries that involve a revived pterodactyl, a frightful on-stage murder, a looming execution by guillotine and a demon from the depths of hell - plus of course moronic gendarmes, loyal henchmen and a climax atop the Eiffel Tower.
