Product Details

Praise

“The hilarious narrative incorporates a talking baseball card, a cow spirit guide, and a cell of angry Wayne Newton fans. Stamaty’s strips are filled with surreal transformations, inventive page design, prolific decoration, and marginal commentary, frequently digressing and addressing its own plot, creation, and readers’ expectations. In a new ‘Addendum’ in comic form, Stamaty explains the circumstances around the strip’s end and his subsequent artistic rejuvenation. Readers looking for an extremely funny metacomic will enjoy this work immensely, as will those wanting a taste of 1970s New York City. The addendum is a fascinating, personal portrait of the life of a creative artist.” —Library Journal


“Stamaty treats the strip like a canvas, filling it with layers of meticulous detail; tight, clean lines; playful self-awareness; and monkeys washing dishes….Though Stamaty’s words are sly and kinetic, one can’t help wanting more of his stupendous illustrations, somewhere between R. Crumb and Hergé. Mostly superb with bouts of just excellent.” —Kirkus

“I have never read a comic strip that was this much alive. Stamaty comes at the reader in so many directions at once. It’s as if a classic adventure strip was fending off a Dada invasion while the battlefield (comics’ formal conventions) does somersaults as an ever-changing cast of broadcasters comment on the action…. It’s a funny and thrilling spectacle that has more than a whiff of danger.” —James Sturm
