Hello world! My name is Cab and I'm a freelance comic creator from Montreal, Canada. I'm the author of the Nuclear Winter series.

After having books published in French, I'm ready to start my first English-language webcomic project called Utown. It will be an ongoing black and white comic featuring characters whose story I've been wanting to tell for a long time. I want to share the development of this project that I hold very dear! Patrons will have access to research sketches, character designs, illustrations and will get to see the evolution of the project. When the first pages start to roll in, Patrons will get exclusive access to them before everyone else!



Utown
is the story of a gentrifying neighborhood that a cast of misfits call home. Sam, the broke, underachiever artist, his childhood friend Thomas, Étienne the newcomer, Josie the trouble maker, and Edwin, who seems to belong nowhere. Their town and their lives are about to change forever; will they resist or move on?

I've been photographing and drawing alleyways, train tracks, vacant lots, abandoned factories and traces of Montreal's industrial past for more than 15 years. It was only a matter of time before I distilled down all of these landscapes into comic pages! 

So the plan is to share research material here, let it be sketches, character bios, clothes designs, doodles, everything! If you like what you see, feel free to contribute in whatever way you want. I want as much people to enjoy this comic as possible!

Thank you in advance!
