Stroppy is an allegory of class struggle that questions and critiques social mobility, meritocracy and economic privilege, all while telling a story that also pokes fun at taste and authorship in the music industry…The absurd plot, while fascinating, comes secondary to Bell’s visual metaphors and his colourful, engaging full-page scenes, composed of jittery black lines, minute details and kinetic energy. It’s a pleasure to take in, and the jokes, though subtle, are often as biting as they are clever.
