Here is a reference for "Le trou noir", the french translation you were talking about (french site) :

It was published by Hachette in 1980.

 

Several pics of this french version can be seen here :

The 1979 Black Hole film is also streaming on Disney+. I hadn't seen it in a long time, but we started it with the kids last week. It was a misfire, but fun now to analyze how it struggled to be a hard sci fi film on the one hand (It spends spends 20 minutes at the beginning with the crew navigating away from the black hole's pull and docking with the USS Cygnus, before any hint of a human antagonist materializes.) and a post-Star Wars kiddie action movie on the other hand, with cute robots, plastic-armored stormtroopers, and laser shootouts.

I really liked the Black Hole.  It didn't have enough action for the Star Wars crowd, but it was a really moody picture with great music and some really striking character designs.  I group it with some of the other "kids" movies of the time that were way more adult than any adult probably realized.  Watership Down, Hobbit, Secret Of Nihm, Plague Dogs
