Obscure Cities

I've seen something about this before, apparently it was a series of french graphic novels in the 80's, but it seems very hard to get a hold of, and I have no idea if it is available in english.

Anyway, I found a link to Obscure Cities from some website about Benoit Sokal. Sokal is the author and artist behind the games Amerzone and the Syberia series. Like any good adventure game, his games have great storytelling and worldbuilding. Here's a CGworld article on Syberia.
