Abstract
English-language comics and French-language bande dessinée have been vivid elements in the landscape of Canadian news and entertainment media since the mid-nineteenth century. Before comics there was political and satirical cartooning. One prominent early figure of Canadian cartooning in the late nineteenth-century was Henri Julien. M. Hirsh and P. Loubert’s 1971 study The Great Canadian Comic Books introduced post-war generations to the previously neglected part of their national heritage. The 1960s was a time of change for comics: the medium in which output had from the early twentieth century traditionally been geared to children then became an important means of expression for the counter-culture. Unlike its American and European counterparts the Canadian literary avant-garde used comics to produce innovative expressive forms. The scattered small-press production of comic books riding the wave of Western counter-culture and local cultural nationalism in the late 1960s evolved into a small-scale industry. The graphic novel typifies the medium’s ability to engage fiction and autobiography.
