The daring space adventures of Barbarella were created by Jean-Claude Forest and published in France in the early half of the 60’s; an English translation followed a few years later, and then the well-known movie version starring Jane Fonda in the title role. I’ve always been a fan of the movie and had been curious about the comic strip for many years, when I was lucky enough to find a used copy of the English translation some weeks ago. Here are a few samples from it. If you have seen the movie, you will already be familiar with several of the depicted situations. Sorry that a few of the scans are a bit fuzzy around the edges; the comic book is slightly too large to fit in my scanner and I had a hell of a time scanning these. More Barbarella in part 2!
