Seth's first published comics work was as an illustrator on the Vortex Comics series Mister X, but he soon moved to his own series, Palookaville (published by Drawn and Quarterly), which was part of a miniature boom in non-genre alternative comics from Canada in the 1990s. Seth, Chester Brown, and Joe Matt not only also began their own semi-autobiographical series at the same time but were friends and sometimes depicted each other in their stories.

It's A Good Life, If You Don't Weaken | The Onion - America's Finest News Source (227 words)
Canadian cartoonist Seth (an admitted mistake of a name change enacted in the early '80s) has been writing his bittersweet autobiographical comic Palookaville on a semi-regular basis for five years now.
Unlike other autobiographical cartoonists like Dennis Eichorn or Harvey Pekar, Seth's recent stories have not hinged on one tight narrative event in his life.
Seth's art is perfect for the story—his drawings are clean and crisp, much like those of the gag cartoonist for whom he's searching—and it matches his struggle to find order in a disorderly world.
