“Along with his friend Chester Brown (whose Louis Riel: A Comic-Strip
Biography
could also be included on this list), Seth is one of the best
graphic novelists in the world. This book, a semi-autobiographical tale
about the artist’s obsession with an obscure cartoonist, looks beautiful, walks a fine line between fiction and non-fiction, and has a compelling narrative that stands up to analysis and re-reading. It deserves to be canonized, even if it is not ‘traditional’ enough to ever win a Governor General’s Literary Award or the Giller Prize.”
