Has anybody read Les Cites Obscures? (warning, that site has music) It's a Belgian graphic novel series. In this imaginary world, humans live in independent city-states, each of which has developed a distinct civilization, though all are in some way focused on architecture and architectural styles. There's another site for it here: Urbicande.

I read a translation -- The Invisible Frontier: Cities of the Fantastic -- and was disappointed. It was one of those comics that ought to be cool and somehow wasn't. Perhaps the series as a whole is better.

Okay. I think I was afraid of that, since the art looked so good but I hadn't heard anything about it.

I don't want to put you off. I went from 'this is an incredibly cool idea' at the beginning to 'that is daft' by the end. But I suspect that if I had access to all of it I might see it in an different light. I like Euro comics. I'm just not prepared to buy the entire series.
