The first full-length graphic novel from the author of 'shrimpy and
Paul :Who will win the All-'star 'schnauzer Band song contest?
Enter the strange and wordplay-loving world of the cartoonist and fine
artist Marc Bell ('shrimpy and Paul, Hot Potatoe), where the All-'star
'schnauzer Band runs things and tiny beings hold signs saying Itâ€™s
under control. Our hapless hero, 'stroppy, is minding his
business, working a menial job in one of Monsieur Moustacheâ€™s
factories, when a muscular fellah named 'sean blocks up the assembly
line. 'seanâ€™s there to promote an All-'star 'schnauzer
Bandâ€“organized songwriting contest, which he does enthusiastically
and at the expense of 'stroppyâ€™s livelihood, home, and face. Hoping
for a cash prize, 'stroppy submits a work by his friend Clancy the
Mishaps and hilarity ensue, and 'stroppy is forced to go deep
into the heart of 'schnauzer territory to rescue his poet friend.
'stroppy is Bellâ€™s triumphant return to comics; itâ€™s also his
first full-length graphic novella, one that thrums with jokes,
hashtags, and made-up song lyrics. Densely detailed not-so-secret
underground societies, little robots, and heavyweight humdingers leap
off the page in full color. With 'stroppy, Bell continues to explode
the divide between fine art, doodling, and comics.
