Grupa z Polski (1995) by Andrzej Mleczko. Go to the Muzeum Karykatury website and teach yourself about Polish caricaturists. There's an alphabetical index of the artists with examples of their work under the heading Nasza Kolekcja.
German comics artists don't get a lot of exposure in North America, so it was by complete fluke that I learned of Mawil and his most recent graphic novel Kinderland, about growing up in East Berlin in the 1980s. He seems to have infinite powers of character design. You can read more about life in the German Democratic Republic here.
There is so much Imperator Furiosa fan art out there right now. Here she is as the Three of Swords, by Molly Ostertag. The Three of Swords tarot card represents "a pure piercing sorrow of the mind," which is certainly what's driving Furiosa in Mad Max: Fury Road. Comics Alliance has compiled a gallery of Furiosa art. Elizabeth McClung would love this character.
The New Yorker has a venerable tradition of printing original caricatures and illustrations to document current Broadway hits. Here is R. Kikuo Johnson's illustration to accompany Hilton Als' review from the May 4, 2015 New Yorker of the musical Fun Homebased on Alison Bechdel's graphic novel. I think it's grand that they opted to go forward with a new drawing by another artist instead of back into the source material. Not a lot of journals make a point of making new art.
