Among his many thrilling, intelligent books is Tom Strong, an homage to both the golden age of superheroes and the serial adventurers of the early 20th Century who put every kid that followed their adventures on the edge of his or her seat. These works discuss the politics of Québec during and after the 1970 October Crisis, the struggles of indigenous peoples against environmental destruction, and the efforts of modern anti-capitalist resistance movements in North America, respectively.
