Desert Watch

I recently went to Montreal, Quebec and I didn't miss the opportunity to search for some comic stores there. I love European comics and artists but they are very difficult to find at home in Toronto where North American publications are the standard. I didn't have too much expectations so I was surprised to find 40 days dans le Desert B from Moebius, one of my favorite artists and influences of all. The book is awesome, his clean drawings are more profound and deeply serene than ever and what I though was just a collection of individual drawings is really a story told in the visual pace of The Eyes of the Cat. Makes you want to return to the simple beginnings with just a pen, a white piece of paper and all the time in the world.
