Three weeks, three author tour announcements! And at least one more on the horizon, if our friend Mad Mimi is to be believed...
But lissen up, because this isn't just "some author tour". This is Tom Gauld we're talking about! And he's going to be hitting a few cities in the UK this spring to support his gorgeous new book, YOU'RE ALL JUST JEALOUS OF MY JETPACK (PDF preview here, Tom G's JETPACK Tumblr here).
YOU'RE ALL JUST JEALOUS OF MY JETPACK is a collection of single-page, often single-panel comics originally created for the Review pages of the Guardian. They distill perfectly Tom's dry humor, impeccable timing, and distinctive style; whether he's imagining a Bronte sisters video game or animating the battle between the Realist Novel and the Experimental Novel, wry brilliance is guaranteed. The book will be in North American/UK stores late April, but people in London, Edinburgh, and Bristol can meet the man himself at these whens and wheres:
