I am a huge fan of Brazilian artist Gabriel Ba. His work on The Umbrella Academy and Casanova represents one of the most unique artistic visions to reach comic books in years. His work and relationship with fellow artist/colloborator/twin brother Fabio Moon borders on mystic, and their styles lend themselves to a very special form of story telling.
Luckily for me, this was a big Ba week. With the release of both a hardcover collection of Pixu, his dark graphic novel, and B.P.R.D. 1947, a cool Hellboy spinoff (Both from Dark Horse), I have managed to get a sufficient Ba fix.
Any and all of these works are worth checking out, and you can get them all @ Chicago Comics.
