I'll admit that I'm not as familiar with European comics artists as I'd like to be. I mean, I've read my share of Tintin, I think Blacksad's great and I've seen my share of stuff by Moebius, but it's not the sort of thing I usually actively seek out, and I really should. Because if I did, I probably would've found out about Nicolas Bannister a lot sooner.

Bannister, a French artist and illustrator, has been doing amazing stuff for the past few years, with a friendly, cartoony style that's appealing on every level. Check out some of my favorites from his online portfolio, including his take on the cast of Harry Potter, below!
