Where has this Amazing Comic Book Art Been all My Life?
By MessyNessy

François Schuiten, like the creator of Tintin, is Belgian, and he’s best known for his drawing in the series Les Cités Obscures, a collaboration with his childhood friend, Benoît Peeters. They first worked together at the age of 12 on a school magazine; Benoît wrote the fictional stories, Fançois made the imaginative drawings, and pretty soon the faculty tried to stop them from publishing it, preferring Latin translations and moralizing anecdotes as more appropriate subject matters.

Quite amazing!
I'm not much of a Marvel superhero fan, but I'm currently reading 1602, written by Neil Gaiman with art by Andy Kubert. It's impressive, but not on the scale of "Les Cités Obscures."

The art deco-cyber punk, all white, stainless steel bright, future......before the great "lift them from poverty" city high rises became the "BlockWar" capitals of Judge Dredd.....

Very cool. I like the 1920s poster art aspect of it.

That's a lot of work that went into that. I hope the story's good.

Yeah, it would be disappointing if the story stunk. It would be like dating someone for six months then finding out they vote skinhead.
