Castle Waiting is a good one, worth checking out. It's a feel-good book. I'll be interested to hear what you think of Love and Rockets. I've heard nothing but the best of things about it, but that's all second-hand information.

Blacksad is great. Anthropomorphic animals crime noir. So, yeah, right up my alley.

I have reviews for both Castle Waiting and Blacksad at the blog if you are interested in learning more.
