Mikael is a French-Canadian author from Quebec, writing children's books, graphic novels, and adult comics. He will be embarking on a U.S. tour this spring for Giant, published in English by NBM Publishing. 


About the Author 

Mikael, a French-Canadian author of children's books, graphic novels, and adult comics has been awarded 2 Grand Prizes of the City of Quebec (2015, 2016) and a special mention of the jury for youth in Ouessant, France. This spring, he will be embarking on a U.S. tour for Giant, published in English by NBM Publishing. 

In 1984, he wrote and illustrated his first comic: Les Aventures de Totor - l'Expédition sous-marine. While his studies led him in other directions, he never forgot his love of design. He continued to illustrate for student magazines, deep diving guides, tee shirt logos, and more. 

In 1995, he returned to comics, creating the character Junior, a young English boy who travels with his father across the world at the end of the nineteenth century. In 2000, Mikael signed his first contract as a comic book writer and illustrator with P'tit Louis. He published his first book in 2001, before going on to work with Petit à Petit, Claire de Lune, and PLB éditions.

Although he began with children's books, he has been creating adult works since 2006 featuring more realistic graphics. In 2017, Mikael began a new series in diptych, set in New York in the 1930s -- Giant


About the Book: Giant 

New York in the early 1930s. A mysterious, laconic Irish colossus known as 'Giant' sweats blood, along with his fellow immigrants, to build the skyscrapers of Rockefeller Center. For a while, he has received a reply neither to the typewritten letters nor the money he continues to send across the ocean to Mary Ann, the wife of one of his colleagues who died in an accident. Giant, who seems to be afraid of nothing, still has not found the courage to reveal to the young woman that she is a widow ... What does her silence mean? An entrancing everyday working-class tale featuring the majestic background of the rising skyscrapers of New York.
