Description

The Guardian and 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.

Youre All Just Jealous of My Jetpack perfectly distills Gauld’s dark humor, impeccable timing, and distinctive style. Arrests by the fiction police and imaginary 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.

“Precise and wryly hilarious…Gauld’s both a literature nerd and a science-fiction nerd whose deadpan mashups belong on the same shelf as R. Sikoryak, Michael Kupperman, and Kate Beaton.”― NPR, Best Books of 2013
