The list author says: "This is a list of comics by the New Wave of French cartoonists. Most of these artists got started through the legendary publishing house L'Association, which was kind of a French version of North American alternative publishers like Fantagraphics and Drawn and Quarterly.
The first ten books or so on the list are the ones that are probably the most essential, after that the list is more or less arbitrary.
I try to keep this list more or less updated by occasionally adding new titles."
"Sweet and funny book about a vampire and his messed up love life. This book shows that not only is Sfar a major artist when doing Jewish history and mythology, he's also a 'goth' fantasist comparable with Tim Burton."
"The "Dungeon" fantasy series is a collaboration between several of the key cartoonists of the new wave. "Zenith" is the main series, "Early Years" is about (you guessed it) the early years of the dungeon, "Twilight" about the twilight years."
