Comics in the Park: Montreal Artists Edition

Picnic season is in full swing, moving day is (at last) behind us, and those of us at the top of triplexes are sweating enough in this heatwave to slide down those two sets of stairs. If only there were a pool to splash into at the bottom. 

Fortunately, if you’re looking for something to immerse yourself in, we’ve got comics galore! They’re all 100% chlorine-free, too...but no promises that an occasional tear won’t sting your eyes instead.

Each of these books is a perfect book to laze around with in a park. And they’re all by Montreal-based artists. What better way to enjoy the local scenery than alongside some local art?

For even more great reads, check out our new Quebec Authors section on the Graphic Novel shelves!
