About the Author
Kay Wood has an extensive exhibition history of her artwork. Her paintings have been shown in galleries and museums in the United States, Europe, and Japan, and her work is included in both public and private collections. Now in her sixties, Wood discovered graphic novels just a few years ago while working on a cartoon series with two other artists, and was inspired by the expressive power potential of the medium — a medium she immediately realized was perfect for telling stories she had long wished to tell. She began work on The Big Belch — a quirky and droll graphic novel on a very serious and frightening environmental subject — three years ago. Start up funding for the project was raised on Kickstarter. She was also recently honored with a Leeway Foundation award to help complete The Big Belch and offer it to the public.

This entertaining and enlightening story and its Wonderful main participants move in an On Going interesting and vital flow of Conscience and Resolve. (& FUN for You too! ) As the World spins so do they.
Kay Wood brings us into a Cool 3D like adventure, page by page...moment to moment.
The added element of A COMIC is that bit of a creative puzzle the reader puts together as well. I've enjoyed sharing the BIG BELCH with family and friends, it is a DELIGHT for all ages of Readers and VIEWERS and PUZZLE lovers too.
It also reminds me of this:
Who are you?
Who are you to think?
Who are you to think that?
Who are you to think that you can?
Who are you to think that you can change?
Who are you to think that you can
Change the World!

This being the first graphic novel I've read, there were some eye coordination challenges I had to first familiarize myself with, absorbing the virtuoso sketches, and riotous dialogue. Between the hawk, little Frenchbo Fletcher (Francois to his playmate) and the other supporting casts, not excluding the main two...or three characters... my favorites; Maureen, Monty, and Harold... each with their distinct nuances and motives, kept my eyes...and mind, in horizontal REM motion. Yes! Imagine that.
And still, for as challenging as it was wanting to take my time turning pages, the story made it impossible. I found myself in a race wanting to know what was going to happen to Harold, and the Microgreene young head hunchos, and Ja'mon...or Lance, and the powers-to-be players that kept this story moving. A truly a remarkable experience and entertaining story!
