Comic book artist Pia Guerra, of Y: the Last Man fame recently swapped e-mails with Handshake.

We asked her to give her list of five graphic artists and writers to keep an eye on.

Here are her favorites:

Naoki Urasawa definitely tops that list right now.

Brilliant storyteller.

Pluto, 20th Century Boys and Monster are stunning books.

Makoto Yukimura did this amazing hard sci-fi series called Planetes that I love so much. Not a lot of books make me cry. These did.
