Art: Francois Schuiten

Published On April 27, 2013 | By Richard Bruton | Animation, Comics

Francois Schuiten’s chapter pages for Les Cités Obscures are beautiful, entrancing things. The series has been partly published in English, NBM delivering a couple of volumes in the early 2000s, but there must surely be someone out there (SelfMadeHero? Cinebook?) who would do the decent thing and bring us the entire series.
