I mentioned the title Pterror over Paris ; and, The Eiffel Tower demon above. This book is an English translation of the first volume of Jacques Tardi's Adele Blanc-Sec series, which was recently turned into a movie. I hope you enjoy this trailer for the film (warning: there is a slight hint of nudity).
