Sophie Bédard broke into Québec's comics scene with Almost Summer, a webcomic about teenagers doing whatever it is teenagers do which was later published as a four volume series by Pow Pow Press. Lonely Boys, her latest book, has garnered great reviews since its release in French in Spring 2019 and won the Doug Wright Award for Best Book in 2021. Sophie currently lives in Montréal.
