Art. Comics. There is a bear loose in the city. He is violent and unpredictable. A menace. If you see this bear, please contact the authorities. Do not approach him, do not call out to him, do not follow him into alleyways or darkened places. Do not go looking for this bear. He is very dangerous. He is also very hard to find.
He’s lonely. He’s confused. He’s the Well-Dressed Bear, Jarod Roselló’s softer and fuzzier and much more lovable version of those gaunt guys who wander, wordless, through nameless cities in the works of graphic novelists Lynn Ward and Frans Masereel. This charming and quirky comic is sad and funny; Kafkaesque, Calvino-referencing, suffused with whimsical melancholy, The Well-Dressed Bear’s identity crisis is a pleasure to hold in your hands.
