Les murailles de Samaris, cover

Les murailles de Samaris is a graphic novel by Belgian comic artists François Schuiten and Benoît Peeters, the first volume of their ongoing Les Cités Obscures series. It was first published in serialized form in 1982 in the Franco-Belgian comics magazine À Suivre (#46-49), and as a complete volume first in 1983 by Casterman. In English, it was published as The Great Walls of Samaris (Stories of the fantastic) as a serial in Heavy Metal from October 1984 to March 1985, then in 1987 as a complete volume by NBM Publishing.

In 1988, Schuiten & Peeters took the opportunity of the second French edition to revise their story, adding more content to fit in better with their Les Cités Obscures series that had begun to develop in the years since the book's first publication, and slightly edited the ending for better continuity and logic to the story.
