In the category of stellar team-ups we have:
The Professor’s Daughter written by Joann Sfar, art by Emmanuel Guibert
A bit of role reversal for Sfar and Guibert- Guibert’s watercolors are a pleasant surprise. Fun little romantic romp featuring the aforementioned professor’s daughter and the mummy from daddy’s exibit.
Fell vol 1: Feral City written by Warren Ellis, art by Ben Templesmith
It’s surprising that these two have never teamed up before; Templesmith’s art envisions Ellis’ dark vision with aplomb. I look forward to more of anti-hero detective Fell and the slummy Snowtown.
Wasteland vol1: Cities in Dust written by Antony Johnston, art by Christopher Mitten
Another great team-up. Reminiscent of Carla Speed McNeil’s Finder series, the post-apocalptic dystopia of Wasteland is truly engrossing.
And the one-man-wonders are:
Lone Racer by Nicolas Mahler
Simple line drawing allow the quirky story of the fading racing champ who won’t just won’t quit to shine.
Midnight Opera vols 2 & 3 by Hans Steinbach
These entries in the goth vampire saga allow Steinbach’s ease with innovative layout and P.O.V to shine.
Ex Machina vol 5: Smoke, Smoke written by Brian K. Vaughan
Mayor Hundred must deal with a robber masquerading as a fireman and the city’s drug laws.
Y, the Last Man vol 9: Motherland written by Brian K. Vaughan
Looks like the series is gearing up for the end, revealing the cause of the man-killing plague in this installment.
