The Herald Scotland reviews Nicolas

“Graphic Content: Our Graphic Novel of the Month is Lynda Barry's The Greatest of Marlys (but that's not the only thing we've been reading)” / Herald Scotland / Teddy Jamieson / September 20, 2016

Pascal Girard drew Nicolas – the story of the death of his five-year-old brother and the consequences of that event in  Girard’s life – in less than three days. The result is raw, rough and unpolished but brutally affecting for something so simple in style and story. There are fascinating comparisons to be made with the new afterword which is beautifully crafted by a cartoonist on top of his game. And yet it’s the original that hits harder.
