Be sure to pick up "Sshhhh!" by Jason. I also recommend "Hey Wait". As for Moebius, I do have some Blueberry books, but since I don't have translated copies, I tend to just look through my Moebius art book collections. My favorite is a book called "Chaos." It collects some of my favorite Moebius drawings.

I can only try and guess what your tastes are from your reading list, so these would be pretty safe titles


Did you get December 32 by Bilal? That would be the follow-up to the Dormant Beast.

(nothing like a bit of visuals after this)

I think you may enjoy the Thorgal serie

Scorpion is another good title

Maybe try out MEKA by our friend Bengal :D

La quète de L'oiseau Du Temps:

That's all I can think for now. I'd mention SkyDoll, but this may not fit your reading category...more cartoony...

A recent work that comes to mind and wich I know is available in english is Blacksad. Written by Juan Diaz Canales from Spain and amazing art by Juanjo Guarnido also from Spain.

Thorgal is great. All of Nofrets suggestions are really. Although, I havent read MEKA yet, but Morvan and Bengal sound like a good team. It's prolly worth picking up just for the art alone.

Having read pop gun war, I can say that it is most excellent. :)

Nope, hadn't heard of Pop gun war, but just looking at the sample pages I want to find out more about it.
Thanks for the link :)

Oh yeah I got to hang out with Farel at his Meltdown Gallery show which was cool fun. Pop Gun War is really pretty and surreal which is why I like it. I'm hoping those guys will be at Comic Con again this year. The Iron Wagon by Jason is cool and be absolutely sure to get your hands on everything you can from Spanish Artist Daniel Torres. I'm going to have to check out more of your reccomendations because there is some just beautiful and amazing stuff from there.

A European artist I recently discovered is Mawil. Top Shelf recently put out an english translation of one of his books, Beach Safari, which is where I first discovered his work. He has a simple, sketchy style that looks rather effortless and I find personally appealing.

He has a website (in German) with lots of art and stuff at http://www.mawilcomix.de/

I especially liked the recent "Sillage" from Morvan (the same guy Bengal worked with on Meka) and Buchet. I think it's been translated in English as "Wake".

"De cap et des Crocs" is also nice but probably not right along your list.

One of the classics is "Valerian" by Christin and Mézières.

That would be my suggestions.
