We gave it a B
A collection of absurdity and stoner-life vignettes by South African newcomer Joe Daly, Scrublands is packed with witty puffs about art, veggie conventions, and Bruce Springsteen’s scalp. Plus, lots of strange depictions of childbirth — high times, indeed.
For Fans of…
R. Crumb, Daniel Clowes.
Does It Deliver?
Worth a toke. The silent ”Prebaby” showcases Daly’s command of storytelling; ”My Beach Community” reveals a warm, keen POV. When sensibilities combine, he’ll be smokin’.
