Newsarama on Miss Don’t Touch Me and a preview of Story of Lee

“Hubert’s good ear for dialogue and fast-moving scenes keep the pace quick, while each page gives readers nearly a dozen panels of information and characterization.  There’s no obvious genre hook here – it’s simply good writing, a story about a girl’s dream to find a better life and the unfortunate slings and stones that hold her back.  The character work is strong, the plot interesting and involved without being convoluted.

Kerascoët’s strong character designs and detailed artwork capture the atmosphere of early Twentieth Century France, from bustling Paris to idyllic pastoral settings. The character acting is superb, and the clear, simple grid layouts move the story forward precisely.

Miss Don’t Touch Me v. 2 stands out as worthy successor to the original, which was, in turn, among 2008’s best comics.  Hubert and Kerascoët have crafted an oddly funny, yet very dramatic period piece thriller, quite unlike anything else in comics today.  They’ve clearly established themselves as a creative team worth following to any project they pursue.”
