"Bell has a gift for incomprehensible gab, juggling a dozen language gags in complicated comic pages that, like Ulysses, could take you twenty-four hours or a lifetime to read."-Lee Henderson BORDER CROSSINGS
Pure Pajamas collects Marc Bell's best material from his syndicated weekly comic strip for the Montreal Mirror and the Halifax Coast, as well as a host of anthologies such as Kramers Ergot, EXPO, Maow Maow and more, featuring his reoccurring characters Kevin, Ol' Simp, Chia-Man, Mr. Socks, and Shrimpy and Paul. Throughout PURE PAJAMAS, Bell creates symbiotic relationships of his fantasy ecosystems, drawn in a rubbery big-foot style. Reminiscent of the sixties comics of R. Crumb but with a kind of bemused detachment in place of Crumb's ire, Bell addresses the big issues of what it's like to live in today's world.
