My sister Laureen took this picture, she took them to a bookstore. I love these two! My heart swells. I want to give them an award for letting me draw comics about them and not complaining. They are the best.
If you enjoyed poking fun at genres with Femme Fatale, and if you like smart parody, give Nonsense Novels by Stephen Leacock a spin. It’s one of my favourite humour collections of all time. Leacock is perhaps not very well known outside his native land, but he is a grandfather of parody, among the best of them. Nonsense Novels was first published in 1911, and takes on several literary tropes, the first - as you see here - is the Great Detective. The link is to a nice pdf of the whole book.

Jesse Brown’s podcast Canadaland is a unique one. How often do we here in Canada get shows that talk boldly and intelligently about our own media, featuring notable personalities within it? I believe that so many of us care about our culture here strongly, that we want our programs to be better, that we want to understand how things work. Canadians are fiercely proud of quality arts and media that we call our own and that has a distinctive national identity. I know because I have been, as a creator, on the receiving end of this generosity, and the open arms of my neighbours. And I am down with sharing that love.
