by Graham Annable
The vaguely Dilbert-esque art of Graham Annable's Stickleback is flat and joyless, and the text is no better. Frankly, the only redeemable aspects of this work are the pitifully charming cat, Patty, and the artist's equally sad -- but oddly touching in their pathos -- creations, the twisted toilet paper people.
There are many fine, literate, artistic and artful comics and graphic novels out there waiting to be read; this is not one of them, so do not waste your time.
