Baby Cyanide


by Jean-Claude Forest.

Adaptation by Randy & Jean-Marc Lofficier.

Introduction by Jean-Marc Lofficier.

In the 53rd century on the planet Venus, Baby Cyanide and her younger brother have just escaped from the orphanage where they lived when they find themselves involved in a strange quest for a mysterious treasure chest pitting rival space clans against each other…

Baby Cyanide was the second major character created by Jean-Claude Forest, just after Barbarella. Originally published in 1965, this colorful, planetary fantasy tale of two orphans stranded in a whimsical universe, relying only on their wits to survive the most extravagant adventures, became an instant classic which has never been out of print since.

This first ever English-language edition, translated by the award-winning team of Randy & Jean-Marc Lofficier, is presented here as the first in a series of books released jointly by Black Coat Press and Hexagon Comics to celebrate the 60th anniversary of Forest's most famous creation, Barbarella.
