Cahier Noir by Ibrahim R. Ineke. $20, softcover, 106 pages, black and white. Published by Sherpa in The Netherlands.
I was mostly unaware of the work of Ineke before importing these comics from the Dutch publisher Sherpa. After reading them, I'm extremely glad to come into contact with this artist...Ineke draws so beautifully, it seems as if he's taken the best European storytelling influences and combined them with the personal technical mastery of artists like Jeffrey Catherine Jones. These are well told comics drawn with real poetry. If you're unaware of this work, here's a chance to discover them.
