“…The characters and illustrations are quirky and delightful…” “…is terrific, I was laughing throughout…” — Judy Morgan

“…book is terrific I was laughing throughout the read and the mountain of drawings was excellent.” — Steve Donegan

“Entertaining, funny, and enlightening, with wonderfully drawn characters who reveal their personalities as the story progresses … The illustrations … are uniquely the work of this artist, and go far beyond the call of duty in terms of expressiveness and the complex details of interior spaces and landscapes, I spent a lot of time just looking at the pictures. I loved this book. — Elissa Gold

“…I love the asides,little extras, and details that flesh things out and make it richer...I also like it that you show that too little knowledge is dangerous, and that there are loonies on both sides of the story... Go for it! An excellent start. I look forward to the next one, can't wait…” — Tess Frost

The Big Belch, Kay Wood’s very funny graphic novel is about our seriously insane fossil fuel mania. A greedy oil company causes an enormous oil spill. In its desperate quest to save its bottom line and get the media off its case, the company tries a hastily concocted test of a volatile new oil spill cleanup method - despite the dangers. If this reckless experiment goes awry, it could blow up the world. Will a cast of assorted villains and general screw-ups connive and bumble toward disaster, or will a wild crew of environmental crime fighters save the day?

Written and illustrated by artist Kay Wood, The Big Belch recently won The Leeway Foundation an Art and Change grant and successfully attracted start up funding on Kickstarter.

About the Author

I’ve been an artist since I graduated from college in the mid-70s and have a long exhibition history of my paintings.
Of course, I've probably really been an artist since I was first able to hold a crayon. When I was in grade school, my art teacher told me that I could already draw better than he could. And I could. So despite an extended campaign by parents and guidance counselors against the whole artist concept, that was it for me.
Not until my 60s, however, did I discover graphic novels and their wonderful potential to tell stories that I've want to tell for quite some time. A wonderful surprise recently is that I won a Leeway award for my first graphic novel, The Big Belch.
