Conundrum Press to publish Michel Rabagliati’s Paul à Québec in English!
Conundrum Press is delighted to announce that they have acquired the English rights to the latest book by Montrealer Michel Rabagliati. The book will be titled The Song of Roland and will focus on the life and death of the father-in-law of Rabagliati’s famous Paul character, who has been called “The Tintin of Quebec.” The French edition, published by La Pasteque in 2009, was critically hailed, winning the FNAC Prix du Public at France’s Angouleme festival as well as a Joe Shuster Award (Outstanding Cartoonist). It is currently in production by Caramel Films, director and co-writer François Bouvier. The book is a mid-career masterpiece from one of Quebec’s finest draftsmen. Translation will be by Helge Dascher. Rights negotiated between publisher Andy Brown and Michel Rabagliati. Look for a Spring 2012 release.
