Drawn + Quarterly
One of the world’s preeminent publishers of contemporary comics and graphic novels happens to be in Montreal, and this is its sunny, friendly maison mère. Much more than a comic bookstore (though it’s a great one at that), D+Q is a community gathering place that offers art classes, readings and events on a regular basis, bringing in their international roster of artists as well as local creative minds. They carry a carefully curated collection of non-comic literature, ranging from art books to contemporary fiction. As well as many books by other publishers in the comic genre.
