An Interview with Doug Wright Awards Nominee Adam Bourret

books_badge_medium.gif Toronto cartoonist Adam Bourret was recently nominated for a Doug Wright Award for Best Emerging Talent. He also won the 2009 Best Comic award at Expozine, Montreal’s popular small-press fair. His graphic novel, I’m Crazy, documents his experiences with obsessive compulsive disorder, depression, and his struggles as a gay man in a mostly straight world.
Those struggles, as reported in a Torontoist story last year, became more than personal when a printing company refused to print copies of I’m Crazy, citing concerns for the company’s existing contracts with religious organizations that might object to the book’s content. Bourrett persevered and got I’m Crazy printed elsewhere, and he’s been touring the book on and off for the past year. He will be appearing at TCAF on May 8 and 9. He recently spoke with Torontoist’s comics columnist, Dave Howard.
