Graphic Content Book Club: "Brat" by Michael DeForge

Graphic Content is our reading group exclusively for graphic novels and comics!

This month the club will be discussing Brat by Michael DeForge.


A major star of minor crime struggles for delinquency relevancy as she ages out of the delinquent scene she pioneered. Michael DeForge presents the mid-career crisis of a merry prankster in his singular style that blurs the banal with the absurd.

"DeForge's feints at both the cyclical appropriation of radical fury into mainstream culture, and the mistaking of mere temper tantrums for true rebellion make for smart and insightful surrealist satire." -- Publishers Weekly

Brat has a great deal to say about 21st century fame. Just don't try this at home." -- Mike Donachie, The Toronto Star

"Michael DeForge's wonderful new graphic novel Brat mocks both celebrity culture and performances of rebellion." -- Annette Lapointe, New York Journal of Books


Michael DeForge lives and works in Toronto, ON as a cartoonist and commercial illustrator. His one-person anthology series Lose has received great critical and commercial success, having been nominated for every major comics award including the Ignatz and Eisner Awards.
