"You're All Just Jealous of My Jetpack" by Tom Gauld

A selection of Tom Gauld's weekly Guardian comic-strippublished by Drawn & Quarterly last April.

Over the past eight years, Gauld has produced a weekly cartoon for the Saturday Review section of  The Guardian, Britain’s most well regarded newspaper. Only a handful of comics from this huge and hilarious body of work have ever been printed in North America – exclusively within the pages of the prestigious Believer magazine. You’re All Just Jealous of My Jetpack distils perfectly Gauld’s dark humor, impeccable timing, and distinctive style. Arrests by the fiction police and fictional towns designed by Tom Waits intermingle hilariously with piercing observations about human behavior and whimsical imaginings of the future.
