Susceptible by Genevieve Castree

Geneviève Castrée was a French-Canadian comic book artist and musician. Born as Geneviève Gosselin in Québec, she published her first mini-comics in the Montreal underground scene while still a teenager. In 2013, Drawn & Quarterly published her critically acclaimed graphic novel 'Susceptible', a coming-of-age story about the loss of innocence when a child is forced to be the adult amongst grown-ups. Her work was exhibited in Canada, the United States, Europe, Australia, and Japan.

She eventually settled in Anacortes, Washington, with her husband, musician Phil Elverum, a musician and songwriter known from the bands Mount Eerie and The Microphones. She divided her time drawing, making small porcelain sculptures, and composed and performed music under the names Woelv and Ô Paon.

In June 2016, her husband launched a GoFundMe campaign for her treatment of inoperable pancreatic cancer, of which she was diagnosed in May 2015. Sadly, Geneviève Castrée passed away one month later, on 9 July 2016, at the age of 35.
