Lots, but I read more manga
, and way
more US comics too. The main problem is discoverability, so i just try out the first 15-20 pages of interesting looking 1st entry albums by new talent, outside of established authors of course.
The biggest appeal of EU comics is the art. The production values about 60 pages a year (or even less frequent publications) get is though the roof. Here is Blacksad
Go with it, the standalone Blue Is the Warmest Color
(the overrated movie somewhat butchered it), or The Eagles of Rome
for short-ish / entry level newer work.Alejandro Jodorowsky
books, especially his work with Mœbius
, is where it´s truly at.
These are very "advanced" though, so try out Jean Van Hamme´s long running mystery books as XIII
or Largo Winch
if you want bread and butter stories. All of these are R-rated, but the very expensive art form tends to aim older. There is a high amount of good biographical / non-fiction books as A Spring at Chernobyl
Adaptations of EU comics lastly tend to suck. The highlight would be Ubisoft´s XIII shooter.
