Stoney Baloney by Shelby Criswell

Stoney Baloney http://www.shelbycriswell.com/stoneybaloney is a 12-page, digest size, black and white comic with full color cardstock covers written and illustrated by Shelby Criswell.

In this short tale we learn that shopping and drugs don’t mix as a precarious patron attempts to acquire a little rice and some fish. Unfortunately for the bug-eyed stoned consumer, a head trip sends him down the trembling and entertaining grocery aisles somewhere between reality and paranoid hallucinations!

Shelby’s art and story have an unconventional appeal that will delight fans of underground and counterculture comix. The simple line drawings combined with heavy shadows conveys a minimalist aesthetic, but Shelby manages to pack so much story and detail into every page that this comic overflows with well executed and absorbing originality!
