The series premiered in
1976. Stopped in 2007.
The series' title character, Adèle
Blanc-Sec, lives in a semi-realistic Paris around
the time of World War 1. She is an author and a
journalist who encounters spiritism, crime, and
occultism, and she deals with various sorts of
odd beings such as crazy scientists, freaks, and
surreal monsters. The series can be perceived as
a light-hearted parody on fiction elements that
were popular in its time.
The full title of the series is Les
Aventures Extraordinaires d'Adèle Blanc-Sec.
