One of our Gosh! Best of 2017 titles! Feeling very much like a companion piece to Ant Colony, DeForge's darkly comic 2014 debut graphic novel, Sticks Angelica uses a similar narrative technique of presenting short strips that tell a remarkably broad story, ostensibly through a series of gags and skits but with palpable emotional force. Here, DeForge focuses the narrative onto the eponymous former Olympian, poet, scholar, sculptor, minister, activist, Governor General, entrepreneur, line cook, headmistress, Mountie, columnist, libertarian and cellist who has moved into the wilderness to escape from a family scandal, imposing her will on the animals and plants that surround her.
