The Guardian previews Sticks Angelica, Folk Hero

“The 20 comics to watch out for in 2017” / The Guardian / Zainab Akhtar / January 5, 2017

No comics preview is complete without a Michael DeForge book, and the prolific Canadian cartoonist gets his account under way early in the year with this collection. Sticks Angelica is a former Olympian, poet, scholar, sculptor, minister, activist, governor general, entrepreneur, line cook, head mistress, Mountie, columnist, libertarian, cellist. After a high-profile family scandal, Sticks escapes to live in the woods. 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.
