about

Jimmy is a teenager in a crummy little town. He's got a lousy best friend Simon, a porn habit and an uncle whose miserable existence is the embodiment of life stalled in its tracks. He's also got a tender soul, a pure-hearted crush and the makings of a budding artist. A horrible youtube video of Jimmy dancing in his living room becomes viral, courtesy of Simon, and has made every sweet and hopeful thing about Jimmy seem utterly pathetic. Everyone from fellow classmates to the clerk at the corner store has seen the video, and Jimmy finds himself a celebrity in his town, just for the wrong reason. Unfortunately, the youtube antics do not stop there.As in his in debut graphic novella Nicolas, Pascal Girard's second book again showcases his spare, deceptively simple style and his wonderfully expressive and pitch-perfect dialogue. Girard uses a drawn line full of tentative, exploratory and intuitive emotion, a line as sure of the treasure it carries as the book's quiet hero.
Pascal Girard lives in Quebec City and currently divides his time between his illustration career and drawing comics. His first two books, Dans un cruchon and Nicolas, shared the Real-Fillion prize at the Quebec Francophone Comics Festival in 2006.

Reviews

Rated 1 out of 5 by from I didn't get it... I guess graphic novels about teen angst just aren't my thing. I was fooled by a cbc book review into thinking it would be funny. But I didn't think so. The good news is, I doubt I was the intended audience for this work. I am also very glad I got it from the library because it took about 15 minutes to read the entire thing cover to cover. I would have been upset with the spend if I had bought it. My apologies to M. Girard...
