Rabagliati began writing his "Paul" series of graphic novels in 1999, which set its title character against the backdrop of Montreal. His comics have won multiple awards, and Rabagliati was made a Compagnon des arts et des lettres du Quebec for his contribution to the vitality and influence of Quebec culture.
