Summary
"It's about contemporary Canadian cartoonists who are working in graphic life narrative, from confession to memoir to biography. The volume draws on literary theory, visual studies, and cultural history to examine how and why Canadian cartoonists have become so prominent in the international market for comic books based on real-life experiences."--
