Funny and Moody: The Best of Chapleau's Cartoons

Serge Chapleau, Jean-Herman Guay, Université de Sherbrooke and Bruno Lemieux, Collège de Sherbrooke

True iconoclasts, masters of the cutting stroke - "praise" abounds for cartoonists whose sometimes wicked humour shakes up politicians on a daily basis. The delinquent of the editorial team and a walking nightmare for our ruling class, Serge Chapleau is undoubtedly one of the most prolific cartoonists of the last 30 years. He thrives on the news, he's got a sharp eye and he's got an even sharper pen!
