A Conversation with Michel Rabagliati

In addition to promoting the unique viewpoints of Quebec comic book creators, Michel Rabagliati has been an ardent supporter of the MCAF since the beginning. On Saturday, May 27th, comic book aficionados will have the opportunity to hear him talk about his storied career in the industry.

About Michel Rabagliati
Born in 1961, Michel Rabagliati was raised in the Rosemont neighbourhood of Montreal. After considering becoming a typesetter, he eventually decided to study graphic design and began working as a freelancer in that industry in 1981. In 1988, he transitioned to working as an illustrator for advertising agencies.

He launched his first graphic novel in 1998, which revolutionized the Quebec comic book scene. After publishing seven books, Michel Rabagliati has become an icon within the local industry.

In 2007, he was awarded the lifetime achievement prize by the Association of Quebec Bookstores. He was also the first Quebec artist to receive the People’s Choice Award at the prestigious Angoulême International Comic Book Festival for his creation, Paul in Quebec City.

On May 29, 2017, he will be honoured by the Conseil des arts et des lettres du Québec (CALQ) for his contribution to Quebec arts and culture by being named Companion of the Ordre des arts et des lettres du Québec.
