Yesterday evening we enjoyed cocktails with a couple hundred other people in celebration of the return of Michel Risque, "l'un des héros mythique de la bande dessinée québécoise."
The book launch of the reissue of Les Aventures de Michel Risque: Le Savon maléfique, by Réal Godbout and Pierre Fournier (J-F's uncle), from Les Éditions de la Pastèque, was part of BD Montreal, the first ever comic strip component of the Just for Laughs festival, in association with L’Association Bande Dessinée and the Salon du Livre de Montréal.
We have our autographed copy, and I'll be making my best efforts to read the damn thing — it's in the family, after all — though the colloquial language will prove a challenge for me.
Here's a quiz by which I can gauge my comprehension. Wish me luck.
