Reviews

"Each single-page piece is a clever, funny, slightly bonkers riff on a literary theme." --The Times UK

"Often intellectual, frequently absurd, always hilarious, they provide a whimsical and perceptive view of culture, literature, and life itself." --Design Week

"A collective narrative that explores contemporary society in depth, forcing us to scrutinise ourselves and the realities we take for granted. More importantly they're just seriously funny." --It's Nice That

"Tom Gauld is pretty brilliant. You're All Just Jealous of My Jetpack.. is ... dark and funny. Some of the best comics in the collection are the bookish ones, taking chummy digs at everyone from Martin Amis to the BrontΓ«s to "proper literature." --Flavorwire

"These strips mix high culture with low, creating a rare alchemy that is pitch-perfect and full of fun. Gauld's comic strips are smart, silly and hilarious." --Cult Montreal

"That Gauld is able to get so much of that across with so little is like the most disarming, confounding magic trick." --A.V. Club

"[You're All Just Jealous of My Jetpack] consists of single panel cartoon that explore the passage of time, absurdism, and most of the 7 Deadly Sins, all presented with a sense of graceful whimsy that makes his work such a delight to read." --Boing Boing

"Terrifically funny." --Paste Magazine

"His economical art...is married to dry, incisive humor, making each strip a carefully composed marvel...[Gauld is] a cartoonist on par with Charles Addams and Gary Larson." --Publishers Weekly
