The cartoonist of This One Summer and SuperMutant Magic Academy explores the virtual and IRL world of contemporary women via a lens both surreal and wryJenny becomes obsessed with a strange "mirror Facebook," which presents an alternate, possibly better, version of herself. Helen finds her clothes growing baggy, her shoes looser, and as she shrinks away to nothingness, the world around her recedes as well. The animals of the city briefly open their minds to us, and we see the world as they do. A mysterious music file surfaces on the internet and forms the basis of a utopian society-or is it a cult?

Boundless is at once fantastical and realist, playfully hinting at possible transcendence: from one?s culture, one?s relationship, oneself. This collection of short stories is a showcase for the masterful blend of emotion and humour of award-winning cartoonist Jillian Tamaki.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Pretty Good A bit more experimental than some people might expect with some dissonance (purposefully) from the writing and the images. Overall I liked it but may not be for everyone.

Editorial Reviews

Jillian Tamaki seems capable of drawing anything, in any style, and making it appear effortless. Her writing could be described in the same way, and it's thrilling to see those twin skills of hers united in service of these daring, unpredictable, and quietly strange stories.? Adrian Tomine, author of Killing and Dying "Jillian Tamaki's finely hewn tales read like transmissions from a parallel universe just as lonely as our own, but in a more beautifully felt, hilariously ephemeral way. These are precious stories, stories to fall into like an odd dream you left too soon."? Alexandra Kleeman, author of You Too Can Have a Body Like Mine
