January 27, comics fans in Montreal gathered at the Drawn & Quarterly bookstore to meet Jeff Lemire.
He's the author of Essex County.
Sue Smith hosted the two-part evening.
The evening kicked off with Jeff discussing Essex County and his journey to becoming the comics creator he is today.
Sue's conversation with Jeff was followed by a panel discussion on graphic novels featuring arts reporter Jeanette Kelly, Drawn & Quarterly's head publisher and chief, Chris Oliveros, and comics creators Sherwin Sullivan Tjia and Matt Forsythe, the award-winning illustrator and comic book artist whose book Ojingogo won the 2009 Doug Wright Award for Canadian cartooning.
