Editorial Reviews

"With his singular style of irreverent erudition, cartoonist Tom Gauld has emerged as an unparalleled visual satirist of the literary world." ? Brainpickings "Cartoonist Tom Gauld?s You ? re All Just Jealous of My Jetpack consists of single panels that explore the passage of time, absurdism, and most of the 7 Deadly Sins, all presented with a sense of graceful whimsy that makes his work such a delight to read." ?
