Around 2350, a new civilization settled, dominated by clans that control the railway lines, replacing the power of nation-states.  The New Ice Age Jdrien Cycle. A comic by Philippe Bonifay and Studio Jotim.
2350. The Earth is no more than a glacial cap dotted with domes under which various populations live. The people are, one suspects, the most unfortunate: they live under temperatures of less than 15 °. The Aiguilleurs are the masters of the railways, whose motto, "immobility, it is death, mobility, it is life" indicates that cities, dwellings can be transported at any moment. Here are the Shareholders who control everything, especially wealth. They live in an opulence that contrasts with the misery of the People. And then, the Roux, mysterious beings who are cold-weathered and endowed with an impressive sexual appetite. Who are they, where do they come from? Will they be the engine that will cause a society to collapse from injustice, arbitrariness and violence? Indeed, in the image of a pack ice, everything seems frozen in this cloisonné world. Until the day when a simple civil servant, Lien Rag, begins to ask disturbing questions, likely to waver the fortresses on rail.

Artesia

Artesia is an epic fantasy comic book series authored and illustrated by American artist Mark Smylie. Artesia is also the name of the heroine of the cycle. Smylie has described her as a "Pagan Joan of Arc", to use a popular reference, while noting that the closest historical model is the Irish Queen Medb. Themes in the series include feudal politics, intrigue, and power struggles, complex mythology and world history, and strong female characters.
Currently the series is composed of four "books": Artesia, Artesia Afield, Artesia Afire and Artesia Besieged. Each book is composed of six episodes, or fairly American standard comic book-sized episodes. Each book has been followed by an annual compendium including short stories and details of the history, geography and mythology of Artesia's universe. The books together constitute part of a cycle called The Book of Dooms. Smylie has said that it would take 22 books to tell Artesia's story in full, but that at least 7 will be completed "hell or high water".

Fazekas' Star Wars

Attila Fazekas is a Hungarian képregény (comic) artist who got his start in the 1970s. In 1982, he published an unlicensed two-part adaptation of Star Wars with scripts by Tibor Cs. Horváth. Remarkably, over 300,000 copies each were sold in this country of 10.71 million people and by some accounts, this "was the most popular comic book of all times ever published and sold" in Hungary. Artist Attila Fazekas began adapting the Star Wars films in 1982, working off the screenplays, as well as countless theater viewings. That caused the illustrations to either be incredibly accurate or slightly generic. About 300,000 to 500,000 copies of the Hungarian comic book versions of Star Wars and The Empire Strikes Back were sold in the country. But Marvel Comics, which had the license at the time to publish Star Wars comics, found about them and forced the artists to stop before The Return of the Jedi could be adapted.
