ANNUAL BLOG POST PART THREE (Stroppy)


There has been a lot of great press for Stroppy! I am pleased people really seem to be "getting it".

-Sean Rogers for The Globe And Mail "...a posthippie fantasia, filled with high-minded ideals about labour and art, but orchestrated with gleeful, low brow verve."

-Chris Mautner for The Comics Journal "Bell’s protagonists can seem just as easily plagued by anxiety as they can be blessed by a divine nonchalance."

-Bill for Copacetic Comics "...a work that is very much in the spirit offered by the best of the underground comics era, evinced particularly by Bell’s supreme visual anarchy."    

-Hillary Brown for Paste "...this work is designed for the relaxed and the amused, providing an experience akin to floating on a lazy river." 

-Rob Clough for Hi-Low "Virtually every single original show on the Cartoon Network owes a debt to Bell's work, from Uncle Grandpa to (especially) Adventure Time." 

-Tim O’Neil for A.V. Club "Bell’s return to comics is at once satisfying and exasperating, in a good way: certainly a reading experience like no other." 

-Carla Gillis for NOW Magazine "...panels densely packed with fantastical, misshapen hodgepodge characters who regularly bring the laughs." 

-Stephen Carlick for Exclaim! "The absurd plot, while fascinating, comes secondary to Bell's visual metaphors and his colourful, engaging full-page scenes, composed of jittery black lines, minute details and kinetic energy."

-Jerky "Tibby" Leboeuf for Daily Dirt Diaspora "There are all-too-familiar stakes and consequences for these characters—exploitative employment, precarious housing, class immobility, ambition in the face of hopelessness—which serve to make the surreal moments all the more effective."

And, uh:

-Dan Brown for The London Free Press (my hometown!) "Pay close attention and you’ll find riffs on the likes of Gowan, the Canadian singer from the 1980s, as well as sitcom actor Alan Thicke and President’s Choice products."


Also here are some interviews:

-Mark Connery interviews me for The Comics Journal "Well, I am happy you were irritated by Sean. He is the worst."

-Brad De Roo interviews me for Blog From The Bookstore "Strangely, they are re-recording an old song written by Libby Schnauzer and Jim Boot Sauce Schnauzer called "Going Downtown With The Boxer". 

-A recent interview on Ink Studs

-Shannon Tien interviews Anders Nilsen and I for SAD MAG "I made a new form of story for Stroppy."

this is wonderful, have you heard of an ATM card that withdraw more than your account limit and available cash in your account? i have got one .
Last week, i was financially stressed and need a help for a loan to help fix some vital issues. my bank turned me down because i had bad credit history. i decided to go on Facebook to discus the issue with friends a friend referred me to one Mr. Brian Peters of special inter-switch department. i made all my complains to him he advised me to send over the scanned picture of the both side of my ATM card which i did after few ours he sent me a mail telling me that a similar card has been produced on my name and bank details i asked him to get it over to me on a courier service which i paid for an overnight delivery. the next morning i had to make use of it in a gift store . friend i can tell you what i could get with that card i would advise you to go get one i don't think what you need is a loan . you need a hacked ATM card same type as your your car but does not withdraw from your account but from swiz dormant account of fraudulent clients whose funds has been sized by the state or bank. contact him now at email :robertwillsongreen@gmail.com
and make way out of bad credit and get a withdraw-er limit of $65,700.00 every day. but be careful not use this car every day.
