Abstract (English)

"DOMINION is the elaborate, ever-expanding, work-in-progress of the renowned Canadian cartoonist Seth. An imagined place combining elements of numerous early modern Canadian cities, DOMINION embodies the confidence of many communities post-Depression and World War II era, when the North American economy expanded, manufacturing spread, and many cities were characterized by levels of civic engagement rarely seen today. DOMINION is a cartoon space supported by an elaborate narrative vision that includes a detailed history and character studies that are as dark as they are amusing. As with all of Seth’s works, DOMINION is infused with melancholy and an air of ambiguous nostalgia tinged with a healthy dose of cynical humour." -- Publisher's website.
