In this stunning graphic novel adaptation of Robert Lepage and Marie Michaud's play of the same name, East meets West, the personal meets the political, and old meets new. Claire, a Quebecoise art dealer, arrives in China to adopt a little girl. There she visits Pierre, her ex-husband, who after fifteen years in China has been absorbed into a life of bicycles, tea, and calligraphy and has begun to question the new directions his adopted country is going in. Claire and Pierre's lover, the young Chinese artist Xiao Ling, become fast friends. Through this classic love triangle, The Blue Dragon looks at aging, cultural confusion, fertility, and creativity, and confronts some of modern China's most intriguing paradoxes.

Fred Jourdain's gorgeous, colourful, and cinematic drawings do full justice to The Blue Dragon's genesis as one of the Robert Lepage's most dazzling theatrical constructions. A feast for the mind as well as for the senses, The Blue Dragon is a graphic novel for grownups.
