Exclusive Excerpt: Rebecca & Lucie In the Case of the Missing Neighbor by Pascal Girard, Published by Drawn & Quarterly


Today we have a real treat for you – an excerpt of Pascal Girard’s latest book from Drawn & Quarterly, Rebecca & Lucie In the Case of the Missing Neighbor. Rebecca’s on maternity leave with little Lucie (whom she affectionately calls “Lulu”) and in a late summer night breastfeeding session, she notices two men carrying something heavy into a white minivan. Later, at her favourite coffee shop with Lucie in her arms, Rebecca sees a news story break: local man, Eduardo Morales has gone missing! Rebecca has some time before she goes back to her bookstore job, so she decides to put on her detective hat and get to work. In-between emotional daycare drop-offs, kegel classes, and mommy yoga, Rebecca manages to put together a compelling case. Pascal’s attractive cartooning and eye for observational humor make this a compelling read – check out the excerpt below!

Pascal Girard was born in Jonquière, QC, in 1981. He began filling his notebook with drawings on his very first day of school and never stopped. Since he was unable to rid himself of this habit, he naturally decided to make it his career. Girard is the award-winning author of Nicolas, Bigfoot, Reunion, and Petty Theft, all published by Drawn & Quarterly. He lives in Montreal. Rebecca & Lucie In the Case of the Missing Neighbor was published by Drawn & Quarterly .
