Not much seems to happen in Montreal-based Rabagliati graphic novels, described widely as semi-autobiographical. Paul Goes Fishing. Paul Joins the Scouts. Paul Has a Summer Job. These are all part of a continuing series, what look like an epic coming-of-age story of Paul. And these are sort of anti-superhero comics. Very slice-of-life, as you can probably tell from the titles. This isn't Macbeth, or Watchmen, obviously, this is a kid growing up in Montreal. And not much happens. It's "normal" li [...]

Je me sens toujours un peu stupide à l’heure d’écrire quelque chose sur une des bédés de Michel Rabagliati parce que je me dis seigneur, qu’est-ce que j’ai à dire que quelqu’un a pas déjà dit avant moi? (Étrangement, c’est pas le genre d’idée qui m’assaille quand je prends huit cents trente deux mots pour déblatérer sur un des classiques de la littérature occidentale.) Aussi parce que je sais jamais (je crois que je saurai jamais) comment parler, je sais pas, adéquat [...]

Great again. There's a lot of surprising content here, which hits a pretty broad spectrum of emotional notes, and the deftness with which this is handled is really impressive. Some things are presented in such a subtle, understated way, and this really reflects what the character as a still really young boy might have been feeling, instead of what the author is feeling as a much older man remembering these events. And, because of this handling, you as the reader have a much more authentic experi [...]

Paul nous emmène cette fois ci dans sa jeunesse. On y découvre ses amitiés et le début de sa passion pour la BD. Un roman graphique drôle et extrêmement triste en même temps.

Michel Rabagliati nous fait traverser toutes sortes d'émotions à travers ses livres. On s'attache très vite à Paul et à tous ses amis / famille. J'adore.

Encore une fois, Rabagliati nous sort un très bon tome des histoires de Paul. Cette fois, c'est une aventure chez les scouts pendant la crise d'Octobre 70. L'auteur nous offre un point de vu d'un jeune garçon par rapport à cette époque. C'est le point de vue d'un jeune homme qui ne comprend pas tout et qui pense plus à s'amuser que de s'intéresser à la politique.On a droit à des moments rigolos, sympathiques, tendres et même parfois triste. Malgré plusieurs tomes, l'auteur ne semble pa [...]

De toute beauté, encore une fois Rabagliati a su m'émouvoir en capturant l'essence du quotidien, la vie Ces moments en apparence anodins mais qui nous forment et nous façonne en tant qu'être humain. Un rythme un peu plus lent peut-être que les autres, un peu moins d'investissement peut-être au niveau des émotions sauf en ce qui concerne la fin? Peut-être aussi que c'est l'âge du protagoniste qui crée une impression de détachement? Ce protagoniste qui n'ose pas admettre qu'il aimerait [...]

It's the year 1970 and this time Rabagliati's alter ego Paul joins the scouts. He also learns how to play the guitar and how to kiss a girl, while on the background the Québec Liberation Front steal headlines with their kidnappings. Rabagliati's storytelling and drawings work as beautifully as always, but the subject matter feels slightly like a rehash of his earlier book, Paul has a Summer Job, in which Paul also spent time at a camp in the woods and discovered girls. Also, this time the diffe [...]

Fantastique, comme d'habitude. Comme Paul est enfant on sent une belle naïveté à travers le récit - même les évènements tragiques du FLQ deviennent un peu comiques. Ça m'a rappelé des très beaux souvenirs des scouts! Et j'ai beaucoup aimé voir les débuts de Michel/Paul dans la bande dessinée. La fin (view spoiler)[m'a vraiment surprise - mon chum m'avait avertie que les gens pleuraient à la fin, mais je ne m'attendait pas à ça. C'est vraiment dramatique, et les toutes dernières [...]

Every time Rabagliati digs into his younger years, he finds gold. Paul Joins the Scouts is another triumph from the cartoonist. While the shocking-but-true plot revelation toward the end of the story is strikingly memorable, my favorite part of the author's work here is the way he humanizes the scoutmasters as much as he does the boys in the troop. It makes that final twist all the more heart-wrenching. What a gem.

Billet sur mon blog: moncoinlecture.over-blog/aEncore une réussite que ce dernier tome dans la série, qui nous ramène en arrière dans l'enfance de Paul alors qu'il participe au mouvement scout. Encore une fois, Rabagliati réussit à faire passer des émotions incroyables avec quelques images. Toujours très québécois, très "nous", j'adore!

Een zeer mooie Rabagliati, zoals altijd een inkijk in het leven van hemzelf. Hij gaat naar de scouts, geniet van een eerste vriendinnetje en ondekt het tekenen dankzij Franquin ! Maar dan draait het en wordt het zonnige leven van puber Paul ondersteboven gedraaid. Zeer subtiel verteld, fijn getekend en zoals altijd wordt je meegezogen. Ik hou van de man zijn verhalen !

Comme la plupart du monde, je dirai : « C'était bon, très bon même, mais pas autant que Paul à Québec ».

Une autre belle réussite de Michel Rabagliati avec son attachant personnage, Paul.

Meh. It was sort of good, but I don't knowIt's a very cultural work -- if you're from Québec, you can really recognize things you've grown up hearing and seeing -- and I love that. But I just couldn't give a shit about the characters. The story was just Scouts and Paul having fun before that fucking ending.The author is known for his great endings, but the big ending to this one was death. Sometimes it's done well, but in this it feels like a lazy and obvious choice for a twisted and sad ending [...]

Ce tome se termine de manière particulièrement triste et brutale mais il est très beau ❤️Pas de retour en arrière comme avec les autres tomes. On est directement immergé dans l'été de Paul, alors qu'il a 12 ans. On suit son arrivée chez les scouts, puis son année passée avec eux. Il y trouvé de vrais amis et c'est tendre à voir.Une belle histoire.

Quelle belle construction de la narration! En plus, on a des personnages masculins sensibles qui font preuve de compassion et de tendresse dans leurs relations. C'est plate à dire, mais c'est si peu courant que ça m'a frappé. Ça me donne le goût de poursuivre ma lecture avec les albums sur lesquels je n'ai toujours pas mis la main.

Le meilleur "Paul" jusqu'au date!

Probablement mon tome préféré dans la série des Paul qui sont toujours une réussite; quelques larmes ont été versées à la fin du livre.

After reading both Paul Goes Fishing (original French title Paul à la pêche (2006)) and Paul Has a Summer Job (original French title: Paul a un travail d’été (2002)) previously this summer, I feel as if I have really taken to Rabagliati's semi-autobiographical comics, and his alter ego Paul.While Paul Joins the Scouts (original French title Paul au Parc (2011)) is the newest one produced of the ones I have read, it is also the one in which Rabagliati has taken Paul the furthest back in the [...]

1970s Montreal and a terrorist group is dominating the news. Paul and his family live in apartment across the hall from his father's extended family which makes for very little privacy. His main focus is comics and the business of making comics for a living.Paul gains a set of brothers when he joins the scouts. Memories of camp and good times shared with his troop shelter Paul from the realities of the extremist group who eventually resort to kidnapping so as to ensure their demands are heard an [...]

El diseñador gráfico canadiense Michel Rabagliati comenzó a publicar su serie de cómics sobre Paul ya con 38 años en 1999. Desde entonces ha sacado siete títulos a través de los que sigue la infancia de un niño quebequés de finales de los sesenta y principios de los setenta. Son historias medio autobiográficas en las que no solamente queda retratada la infancia de un niño normal, sino también la propia sociedad canadiense de la época, incluida en este caso la crisis que se creó en [...]

Michel Rabagliati kuvaa sarjakuva-albumissaan "Paul Joins the Scouts" (Conundrum, 2013) päähenkilönsä esiteini-ikää 1970-luvulla. Päivät kuluvat partiossa ystävien kanssa, naapurin tytöstä haaveillen ja sarjakuvien piirtämistä harjoitellen. Ajankuvaa tarinaan tuovat Quebecin vapautusrintaman suorittamat iskut, jotka täyttävät lehtien palstat ja uutisotsikot.Rabagliati kuvaa päähenkilönsä herkkää elämänvaihetta totuttuun tapaansa, humoristisen lämpimästi, mutta elämän [...]

OK, here we go, Michel is back on the right track with this one. While I was disappointed with the thinness of Paul Moves Out, this installment of the Paul series delivers depth, richness, and emotion. Politics are interwoven with coming-of-age and family dynamics. For me, this book was very effective at humanizing the October Crisis. This is a beautiful tribute to the author's childhood friends and mentors, and I appreciate his honesty about his childhood reactions and understanding of the FLQ [...]

Michel Rabagliati is now officially my favorite graphic novelist. "Paul Joins the Scouts" once again captures what scouts is REALLY LIKE, showing realistic depictions of boys and adults and the interactions between them. The story is set against the real life political strife that was happening in Quebec circa. 1969-1970. The story has a surprising and shocking ending. Knowing that these books are semi-autobiographical, I can't help but wonder if it actually happened. In sincerely hope it did no [...]

Great panorama of boyhood and what life is. And all illustrated with cute drawings. Rabagliati nails it. If I had to criticise something, it would be the Spanish translation, since the language sounds a little bit old-fashioned (specially considering that the text was released in 2011).From beginning to end it's catching and i specially love the way it ends like a tribute. It's a wonderful piece and the structure is perfect. !!!

I'm clearly enjoying all the Paul books, considering how many I just ripped through.This, however, is probably my least favorite, mostly because it is light, takes place mostly in one time period (when Paul is young) and so doesn't have the resonances and echoes that the other, more sprawling narratives do. In this book, Paul joins the scouts and makes some good friends. The ending surprised me, and truly, I wished there was more to the aftermath of the situation.

For the adults whose children read the Lumberjanes, there's Paul Joins the Scouts. Firstly, it's a great coming of age story. Secondly, I learned a lot about living in Quebec leading up to, and during, the FLQ crisis in 1970. The ending really worked - not what I expected, but framed the story perfectly. I've signed out other Paul books, but I'm not sure they'll live up to this one.

Political drama regarding a terrorist organization set against a boy searching for connection by joining the scouts. He makes friends, overcomes fears, and is touched by two freak accidents. The story didn't resonate with me (though I will likely remember it), but I don't read these for the story--I just love his artwork.

Ik ben al lang(er) eenn van Michel Rabagliati, met zijn reminiscenties aan zijn jeugdjaren, waarin her en der referenties aan de estijds onbegrijpelijk lijkende socio-politieke toestanden. Ook dit verhaal is mooi getekend en herkenbaar, zelfs als u --zoals ik-- geen lid van de jeugdbeweging bent geweest.
