Abstract: If you’ve enjoyed any (or all) of Michel Rabagliati’s previous graphic novels, you’ll love Paul Joins the Scouts, a French-to-English translation of Rabagliati’s Paul au Parc (2011) recently released by Conundrum Press. Scouts is also a fine introduction to Rabagliati’s signature virtues, including his penchant for sentiment, his supple cartooning, and his use of detailed, map-like panels to chart out the environments his characters inhabit.
