A loving time capsule of midcentury Canadiana The 2008 debut of The Collected Doug Wright: Canada’s Master Cartoonist introduced the world to the charms of Canada’s mischievous little kid Nipper, who appeared in newspapers across the country in the mid-twentieth century. Nipper is the first in a series of paperback annuals that will collect two years’ worth of Wright’s ingenious and enduring comic strip. This volume covers a peak period in Wright’s four-decade career as he comes into his own as an iconic cartoonist capable of documenting middle-class suburban existence in all its minute joys and indignities. Packed with period details and loaded with charm, these collections of sublime wordless strips feature designs by the acclaimed cartoonist Seth and a brief introduction by the writer Brad Mackay.

Canadian cartoonist Gregory Gallant, pen name Seth, emerged as a cartoonist in the fertile period of the 1980s, when the alternative comics market boomed. Though he was influenced by mainstream comics in his teen years and did his earliest comics work on Mister X, a mainstream-style melodrama, Seth remains one of the least mainstream-inflected figures of the alternative comics’ movement. His primary influences are underground comix, newspaper strips, and classic cartooning. These interviews, including one career-spanning, definitive interview between the volume editors and the artist published here for the first time, delve into Seth’s output from its earliest days to the present. Conversations offer insight into his influences, ideologies of comics and art, thematic preoccupations, and major works, from numerous perspectives—given Seth’s complex and multifaceted artistic endeavors. Seth’s first graphic novel, It’s a Good Life, If You Don’t Weaken, announced his fascination with the past and with earlier cartooning styles. Subsequent works expand on those preoccupations and themes. Clyde Fans, for example, balances present-day action against narratives set in the past. The visual style looks polished and contemplative, the narrative deliberately paced; plot seems less important than mood or characterization, as Seth deals with the inescapable grind of time and what it devours, themes which recur to varying degrees in George Sprott, Wimbledon Green, and The Great Northern Brotherhood of Canadian Cartoonists.

In the mid-twentieth century, Canadian literature transformed from a largely ignored trickle of books into an enormous cultural phenomenon that produced Margaret Atwood, Alice Munro, Michael Ondaatje, Mordecai Richler, and so many others. In Arrival, acclaimed writer and critic Nick Mount answers the question: What caused the CanLit Boom? Written with wit and panache, Arrival tells the story of Canada’s literary awakening. Interwoven with Mount’s vivid tale are enlightening mini-biographies of the people who made it happen, from superstars Leonard Cohen and Marie-Claire Blais to lesser-known lights like the troubled and impassioned Harold Sonny Ladoo. The full range of Canada’s literary boom is here: the underground exploits of the blew ointment and Tish gangs; revolutionary critical forays by highbrow academics; the blunt-force trauma of our plain-spoken backwoods poetry; and the urgent political writing that erupted from the turmoil in Quebec. Published to coincide with the 150th anniversary of Canadian Confederation, Arrival is a dazzling, variegated, and inspired piece of writing that helps explain how we got from there to here.

Canadian Graphic: Picturing Life Narratives presents critical essays on contemporary Canadian cartoonists working in graphic life narrative, from confession to memoir to biography. The contributors draw on literary theory, visual studies, and cultural history to show how Canadian cartoonists have become so prominent in the international market for comic books based on real-life experiences. The essays explore the visual styles and storytelling techniques of Canadian cartoonists, as well as their shared concern with the spectacular vulnerability of the self. Canadian Graphic also considers the role of graphic life narratives in reimagining the national past, including Indigenous–settler relations, both world wars, and Quebec’s Quiet Revolution. Contributors use a range of approaches to analyze the political, aesthetic, and narrative tensions in these works between self and other, memory and history, individual and collective. An original contribution to the study of auto/biography, alternative comics, and Canadian print culture, Canadian Graphic proposes new ways of reading the intersection of comics and auto/ biography both within and across national boundaries.

Lorenz Peter was awarded the 2006 Doug Wright Award for Best Emerging Talent, for his graphic novel Dark Adaptation (Pedlar Press, 2005). Jurors Atom Egoyan, Gail Singer and Chester Brown called Peters graphic work sublime. This new Peter title is a collection of almost fifteen years work. Side Effect is a document of the times from the perspective of a dreamer. The book begins with the first images and ideas that provided the foundation for the work to follow, and progresses in chronological order through the different phases of the artists early self-publishing career. The nameSide Effect came through an examination of ourmodern lifestyles, which, Peter believes, leads to psychic illness of all orders. At a young age, the author did not understand this concept too well, but went with his feelings, and this book is about feeling ones way through dark passages, not quite "getting it," and being somewhat lost.It's also about resenting popular overproduced entertainment, the evils of advertising, the corruption of souls by corporate powers, and the desire to escape, whether via drugs, obsession, or seclusion. Of course, it also has to be funny! It's a comic book! It wants to poke fun at these dilemmas, all the while soaking in it. Thebook shows an obviousprogression toward Peters current refined style. The integrity of the art is uncompromised. This is an "Art Book," for the collector as well as the simply curious.
