For Montreal graphic designer Paul, life is good. His business is taking off, his partner Lucie is pregnant, and it’s vacation time — time to leave the city, head up north, and go fishing with close friends. But conversations with those friends, reminiscences of his own childhood, and unexpected complications to the pregnancy remind Paul that family life has its own perils and pitfalls.
Today on the Comics Page, we’re proud to present an excerpt from Paul Goes Fishing, the touching and funny fourth volume in Michel Rabagliati’s autobiographical series of graphic novels. The book is out this week from Drawn and Quarterly.
