The past year or so has seen many great Canadian graphic novels published: Seth’s fantastic George Sprott (1894–1975), Jeff Lemire’s inventive post-apocalyptic Sweet Tooth, Kathryn and Stuart Immonen’s intriguing Moving Pictures, and let’s not forget the Canadian rock star of comics, Bryan Lee O’Malley, and the last installment of his Scott Pilgrim vs. the World series, which is also coming to theatres. I think it’s fair to argue we are in the middle of a big enough groundswell of talent and output to look back and re-examine the works of a few old and new masters.
One such book, Line Gamache’s Hello, Me Pretty, was published by Conundrum Press in May 2007 as the first title in their (then) new BDang! imprint, which specializes in bringing French-Canadian books to an English-Canadian readership.
