The first graphic novel from a founding father of the Quebec comix underground

A poignant account of an alcoholic father who drags his family into misfortune, The Vagabond
Valise is the heart-breaking autobiographical story of Siris, represented by his chicken-headed
alter ego.

Siris paints a sincere and poetic portrait of a troubled childhood spent in and out of foster
homes, and the working-class, post-war Quebec where it took place.

Nominated for theĀ Friends of the Montreal Library Award, and winner of the Quebec Graphic Novel of the Year.

Siris is a founding father of the Montreal underground comix community. He has been publishing his stories in zines, anthologies, and comics for 20 years. The Vagabond Valise is his English debut.
