about


A&nbspnew collection from the Guardian and New York Times Magazine cartoonist
The 'New York Times Magazine' cartoonist Tom Gauld follows up his widely praised graphic novel 'Goliath' with 'You're All Just Jealous of My Jetpack', a collection of cartoons made for 'The Guardian'. Over the past eight years, Gauld has produced a weekly cartoon for the Saturday Review section of Britain's best-regarded newspaper. Only a handful of comics from this huge and hilarious body of work have ever been printed in North America-and these have been available exclusively within the pages of the prestigious 'Believer' magazine. &nbsp&nbsp&nbsp&nbsp 'You're All Just Jealous of My Jetpack' distills perfectly Gauld's dark humor, impeccable timing, and distinctive style. Arrests by the fiction police and&nbspimaginary towns designed by Tom Waits intermingle hilariously with piercing observations about human behavior and whimsical imaginings of the future. Again and again, Gauld reaffirms his position as a first-rank cartoonist, creating work infused with a deep understanding of both literary and cartoon history.
Tom Gauld lives in London. His comics frequently appear in 'The Guardian', 'The New York Times', and 'The Believer'. He has designed a number of book covers.

Praise for Goliath

&nbsp

"[Tom Gauld's] most accomplished and moving work to date." -Mark Sinclair, Creative Review "Tom Gauld's tragic, darkly funny retelling of David and Goliath from Goliath's perspective. Gauld's work is always quietly powerful and emotionally grabbing."&nbsp-Mark Frauenfelder, Boing Boing
