..". absurdist slices of life to tales of uncanny transcendence ... [Sticks Angelica] eschews human society for a surreal life in the forest; strange hijinks do, in fact, ensue."--Vol 1 Brooklyn "A surreal trip into the Canadian wilderness."--Vice "One of DeForge's talents is to create an off-kilter world that differs from ours in various strange ways, yet to do so convincingly, and in a way that sheds light on aspects of our own ... Sticks Angelica is an absolute pleasure."--The Quietus "Toying with autobiography, biography, and hagiography, DeForge examines both how we build our own sense of self and how others take on the roles we create for them."--The Guardian "Michael DeForge improvises his own brand of classic comic strip, as though we were reading a mutant Mark Trail ... a self-conscious lark on the Canadian theme of survival."--The Globe and Mail "[Sticks Angelica is] a meditation on fame... a beautiful, disturbing daydream in pink-and-black ink."--Publishers Weekly Starred Review "Is there meaning in the world? In the wilderness? In the universe? Who knows. But there is art, and Michael DeForge is making it."--Paste "Michael DeForge... has become one of the comic-book industry's most exciting, unpredictable talents because of this eagerness to push himself outside of his comfort zone."--NPR "Sticks Angelica, Folk Hero is weird, hilarious and affecting."--CBC
