about

Reunion is a semiautobiographical book that recounts when Pascal Girard received an invitation to attend his ten-year high-school reunion. Initially dismissing the idea of attending, he changes his mind when he receives an e-mail from Lucie Cote, the girl he had a huge crush on in high school, asking if he would accompany her. Pascal becomes flustered with joy, but two problems remain: he must keep his almost uncontrollable infatuation a secret from his girlfriend, Julie, and he must do something about his weight, which is at 252 pounds. Three months pass as Pascal dutifully jogs to lose 50 lbs and fantasizes about meeting Lucie. Pascal arrives at the big event, full of anticipation, but his fantasies are cruelly deflated by each conversation he has with his former classmates. Reunion is laugh-out-loud funny, with wry, self deprecating humor, and Girard's cartooning is effortless in its fluidity.
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. Girard is the author of Nicolas and Bigfoot.

Reviews

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Painful The inside back cover for this book claimed that it was 'laugh out loud funny' but frankly I didn't see the humour it. Throughout reading this graphic novel I spent most of my time inwardly cringing at the social awkwardness exhibited by the author and the only thing I took away from it was that he must have absolutely no social skills whatsoever. Either way, I didn't enjoy it and I wouldn't recommend it
