    • I love Michael DeForge’s bizarre humor and art. This is his most conventional work, in that it is a sustained series of comics strips (taken from his Tumblr, submitted a page a week!) focusing on a woman, Sticks Angelica, who has chosen to leave civilization and live in an Ontario (Canada!) Provincial Park, and live with (and talk with) the birds and animals. She isn’t even sure she likes most of the birds and animals, actually. Sticks is a kind of arrogant person that “Michael DeForge” [...]



    • Relatively speaking, this is a more conventional story for Michael DeForge. That's not to say that this is conventional, by any meansbut it's narrative flow is more straightforward that you find in many of DeForge's comics. This one began as a webcomicd, in fact, you can still find the complete story up on the Sticks Angelica Tumblr site. It's always good news to get a new DeForge book!


    • Deforge, master of inside jokes you want to be cool enough to get but most certainly are not. But you make me look slightly cooler in a coffee shop, so I can't complain too much. INDIE COMICS making you look cooler than you are since 2003. Right? Of course, right.


    • The DeForge work this most resembles is Ant Colony. Like that book, this was originally a serialized webcomic. Also like that book, it patiently builds an elaborate alternate reality over the course of many short strips. The biggest difference between the two comics is in tone. Ant Colony has a dark, horrific energy running through it; Sticks Angelica is more wry and whimsical. Sometimes it's a little too whimsical for my tastes. I miss some of the body horror and raw political commentary of Ant [...]


    • I really went back and forth on this collection but wound up being quite enamored by it. I'm not sure what of the many oddities rubbed me the wrong way in the first half of the book, but I put it down for a while when the character of Lisa Hanawalt appeared (I love Hanawalt's work. Hanawalt in moose form, not as much.) But after a break, I found the strips frequently charming and odd.




    • Equal parts strange and delightful and sad and funny. Michael DeForge remains one of the most creative and unique graphic novelists out there today.




    • This is a weird one (which is no surprise, given the creator), but it's pretty fun. Sticks Angelica is a Canadian Renaissance woman celebrity who lives in a nature preserve, where she mostly complains about the annoying anthropomorphic animals and also deals with the weird laws of this world that involve the allowed hunting of animals that have been marked for death because they committed a crime (like forgery or embezzlement). There's a love triangle involving Sticks, a rabbit, and an eel, some [...]


    • I wish I had the kind of imagination Michael DeForge has. Very few people are as good at creating bizarre mythologies that aren't too different from our own, but where surreal details are introduced in such a casual way that there's no need to ask questions. Pretty much everything of I've read by DeForge has challenged the way I see the world, but often in a pretty dark, heavy way. Sticks Angelica is lighter and more approachable than a lot of his work, but not in a way that sacrifices any of hi [...]


    • Though it was drawn in strips it felt like a complete story. Overall the writing was incredibly Canadian; and not just because it was set in Canada. It had that same quality of bizarre, whimsical and dark humour that I expect. I enjoyed this, looking forward to checking out DeForge's less conventional works in the future.


    • A strange collection of short comics, with a couple overarching stories. Some hit the mark with commentary on relationships, other seems strange for the sake of strangeness. I wouldn't suggest purchasing it, but check your local library for a copy.


    • Bizarre in the best way, Deforge always delivers a comic that is surprisingly uncanny. His style is incredibly unique, unlike anything else I've ever seen. The sheer amount of creativity to his work is astounding. Sticks Angelica is absurd and dark but oddly captivating. Definitely recommended.





    • This was such a strange book, but I really enjoyed it. Felt like a cross between Beautiful Darkness and Jimmy Corrigan.


    • Lovely illustrations, but I could careless for Sticks Angelica overall character. Oatmeal was my favorite character in the book.


    • Shaped like Dal Tokyo, so very hard to read in bed. Not very many of these are actually about the character Sticks Angelica. These are kind of like Anders Nilsen's mid career stuff. Good work though.






    • DeForge has created a world that is completely his own. Strange, beautiful, and thoughtful. It took a bit for me to get my footing, but once I did it grew on me fast.
