Cyclops is the work of twenty-five highly prolific, award-winning, mature Canadian artists. Consisting of longer graphic narratives the book allows these artists room to express themselves within a medium which fuses the form of the graphic narrative with the conventions of the short story. The stories relate to the human condition and are told through a variety of approaches including humour, autobiography, poetry, philosophy, legend and myth. Some of these artists are well known in North America as well but for most of the French artists this book will be the first showcasing of their work in English. Cyclops is the English version of the popular and critically-acclaimed series of Cyclopes books which have represented Quebec culture abroad. Publishing their innovative work in translation will finally provide an opportunity for these artists to be appreciated in the rest of North America.
