    1 thought on “Scrublands”

    1. BCDER: 81Short mostly stoner stories with a South African flavor. Joe Daly entertains me as a cartoonist even with some of the very short slice of life glimpses of what I'm guessing are autobiographical in nature. The wordless "Prebaby" is the star in my opinion with "Aquaboy 1&2" following closely behind. A quick, mildly trippy fun read.

    2. I like Joe Daly’s work but “Scrublands” is probably his weakest book. It contains very short strips about sexually shaped sculptures or sexually shaped vegetables, some weird stoner humour, and some avant-garde nonsense. Most of the characters look disturbing and monstrous-like as if they were characters from an old MAD magazine strip. The book contains few strips worth remembering though his distinctive drawing style becomes quite likeable after a while, and I can highly recommend his oth [...]

    3. This was a drug trip of a book. A collection of short comics, Joe Daly's style is eclectic to say the least. I started this just last night and blew through it, mostly due to one story that constituted half of the graphic novel which had no dialogue whatsoever. The stories toward the end were kind of disappointing, but the bulk of them (including the long, wordless one) were pretty jaw dropping.

    4. Pretty good stuff.Daly mixes a little Crumb and Bagge for his more straight stories, but then makes a sharp turn into Shaun Tan territory with "Pre-Baby". He has a great style, but it's a little too much like someone else's style. Hopefully, he will develop something a little more original. Pre-Baby is a really frickin' good start.

    5. All of the weirdness I love from artists like Woodring . . . only without the soul. These stories bored me to tears. Tears of blood and revenge.
