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'.
