He's friendly. He's responsible. And he can be funny. Sometimes. But Gary is no Casanova. He could be your co-worker. He could be your neighbor. But could he be your boyfriend? In order for that to happen, he'd have to ask you out - but that's not going to happen any time soon. Because Gary isn't the kind of guy who asks you out. He's the kind of guy who sort of thinks that maybe he could possibly think about asking you out eventually. All that, however, is about to change. Maybe. Gary, King of the Pickup Artists is a refreshingly honest romantic comedy, charming and full of awkwardness - with a few Weezer songs and hockey references thrown in, for good measure.
Luc Bossé created Éditions Pow Pow in 2010. The French version of Gary, King of the Pickup Artists, was among the first books he published. Since then, Pow Pow has kept him quite busy. But he managed to release the tongue-in-cheek Comment faire de l'argent (How to Make Money) in 2014 and is in the process of completing a sequel to King of the Pickup Artists. He lives in Montréal. Gary, King of the Pick-up Artists, Alexandre Simard's debut book, won the Expozine Award for "Best comic" when it was first released in French in 2010. He is currently working on a few new projects - including Yves, fidèle à lui-même, a sequel to his previous graphic novel. He also lives in Montréal.
