Suddenly Something Happened

by Jimmy Beaulieu

translated by KerryAnn Cochrane

Conundrum Press, 2010

Jimmy ponders the difference between living in Quebec City and Montreal with its bohemian nightlife. He starts to publish other artists, travels to comic festivals around the globe, settles down and watches the neighbourhood change. Told in richly rendered pencil lines in front of masterfully drawn backdrops portraying Quebec’s urban and rural landscapes, these are the complete non-adventures of Jimmy Beaulieu, an easygoing artist with an appreciation for the finer things in life—such as the balconies of Montreal in spring time and station wagons with fake wood paneling.
