Almost 4 years after discovering his drawings on Aimee Mann’s Lost in space cover art, I stumbled upon a Seth graphic novel at Drawn& Quarterly bookstore in Montreal. I was stunned to find it, as I was looking for that artist for a while, never finding anything in other bookstores. Luckily Drawn is his publisher and never run out of copies 🙂 And he’s Canadian (from ontario) ! I was not expecting that at all.

All that to say that I discovered what may very well be my favorite comic artist since Daniel Clowes. They both have this down-to-earth, pessimistic approach to everyday life, with jolts of tiny happy moments. I totally relate to that way of thought and these comics really speak to me.

I would strongly recommend the one I’m reading now, before even finishing it. It’s called “It’s a Good Life, If You Don’t Weaken”. Find it, buy it and thank me later.
