For a Full Review + Screenhots:
Release date [France] November 2, 2012
Release date [GER] February 7, 2013
Late last year Metal Hurlant's first season was released on Blu-Ray in France with quite a pricetag for 6 episodes of 23 minutes. On February 7, 2013, this series has also been released in Germany, a limited steelbook edition for the blu-ray. The German Blu-Ray has German subs only, but does have German and English soundtrack. This is also the case with the French release, English and French soundtrack but only French subs. Regarding the special features department, there not much of extra's on these discs, some interviews, few making of's and a comic con feature.
Each 23-minute long episode will center on one heroic arc in a world that combines a Game of Thrones-type fantasy setting with
sci-fi elements. Quality-wise this series cannot compete against GOT unfortunately.
I have seen the episodes and I have to say, I was a bit disappointed, I expected more, the SFX is more than okay but the stories and the acting is often less than okay. Perhaps I will purchase it myself but certainly not with the current pricetag!
