Issues 14 and 15, released in 2018 and 2019, feature the work of literary cartoonists Aude Mermilliod and Guy Delisle, and contain some 10 original literary comics per issue.

A national and international showcase for literary comics from Quebec

PLANCHES is a creative writing magazine that features the work of graphic novelists and literary cartoonists from Quebec in every issue. The magazine is dedicated to promoting literary comics in Quebec, as well as in French-speaking Europe—a market that is essential to connecting Quebec’s graphic novelists and cartoonists with audiences beyond their own province.

A strong editorial vision

PLANCHES promotes literary comics intended for an adult audience. It often features politically-engaged stories and progressive ideas. The team, which is very active online, also favours various forms of artistic creativity and seeks above all to transport their readers into a world rich with imagery.
