Canadians! They look just like us. They act very much like us. But they are not us. They are Canadians. You may find this exhaustive list of Canadian cartoonists disturbing — it is truly shocking how much work by Canadians has been allowed to slip into the US marketplace.

The awards now have a spiffy, regularly updated blog to further inform us of the Canadian menace.
As long as we’re talking Canada, The Walrus reviews Two New Canadian Graphic Novels, UNE PIQUANTE PETITE BRUNETTE, by Albert Chartier, and DROP-IN, by Dave Lapp. They are all around us, I am telling you.
