Writing for Canadian Art, Christine Redfern interviews Wayne Baerwaldt who is curating he upcoming Biennale de Montreal:

The comics are so well drawn; the narratives are so sophisticated –many, of course, from Quebecois artists. Comics are a fantastical, imaginative means of breaking open creative borders. You just have a lot more freedom to be irreverent, to go beyond the predictable even in the comic genre. I think I can really treat the narrative and artwork that go into the making of a comic book just as I would treat a painting.
