The Herald Scotland reviews Sticks Angelica

“Monsters inked: Six of the best recent graphic novels reviewed by Teddy Jamieson” / The Herald Scotland / Teddy Jamieson / April 22, 2017

… For a more approachable idea of cartoon weirdness, Canadian cartoonist Michael DeForge returns with Sticks Angelica, Folk Hero. The title character is a former Olympian, poet, scholar, sculptor, mounty, libertarian and cellist (and that’s the condensed version), who operates in a national park full of talking flora and fauna and a clothes-stealing moose called Lisa Hanawalt (a cartoonist in-joke, that). This is minor DeForge, all quirk and facetiousness, but that doesn’t make it any less fun to visit.
