Montréal-based artist Cathon makes comics and children's books. In 2013, she and fellow Québec cartoonist Iris published an absurd encyclopedia of everyday objects. Hugely popular, it was adapted by the National Film Board of Canada as The Great List of Everything, an animated web series. The Adventures of Sgoobidoo is her latest book to appear in English, joining Vampire Cousins and The Pineapples of Wrath, also published by Pow Pow Press. Her off-kilter humour draws upon pop culture and genre fiction, and she knows all of Columbo's iconic lines by heart.
