Tom Gauld is a favourite round these parts. It’s not just because of his stellar cartooning skills (see Hunter & Painter and The Gigantic Robot) but also because he’s a thoroughly nice dude. We threw him a launch party last year for Goliath and we’re doing it all over again for his new Drawn & Quarterly book You’re All Just Jealous Of My Jetpack whose existence now means that people outside of UK Guardian readers can see the stuff that we get on a weekly basis because we are oh so spoiled. Eight years worth of strips are collected in this handsome hardcover and it’s about bloody time someone put them in a book. Here’s a preview.
