This second trip, she said, is looking much different. On Thursday, she’ll be launching ‘Ciel,’ the first volume of a French novel series based on her comics.

She’ll also launch a new comic book, Serious Trans Vibes. That has been published in both English and French.

“It is a very different context than last year that I’m coming to Halifax, and a very different atmosphere...I’m really looking forward to launching it in Halifax,” she said.

“There were a lot of people that were disappointed since last year when I couldn’t do the event because of everything that happened. I had promised myself that next time I had an opportunity to do so, I would do something in Halifax.”

While she’s still regularly harassed online, Labelle said it’s nowhere close to the level of hatred she experienced last year, which included multiple death threats.

“I really landed on my feet after these events and I feel like I came back stronger than before after these attacks. With the support from my audience and the general public I also found a lot of new supporters,” she said.

“Sadly I think those people who attacked me simply went on to attack people they felt were less visible, different targets, when they saw that I had the support of the public in general.”

Labelle will appear at Cape and Cowl in Lower Sackville on Thursday from 4 to 6 p.m.

That’ll be followed by a short reading and a question/answer session at Venus Envy in Halifax from 7:30 to 9:30 p.m.

“I’m grateful to Halifax and looking forward to coming back.”
