About the Author

He won the Observer/Jonathan Cape/Comica Graphic Short Story Prize in 2020 with the strip Similar to But Not. In it, he recounts meeting Madonna in his local pub in 1985. He has written, drawn, and self-published many comics, including Pope Francis Goes to The Dentist, Journey into Indignity, and Gripe Night.


"When I began to read Why Don't You Love Me? I thought it read like any number of slightly surrealistic slightly vapid early-2000s stories that were basically the cartoonist's way of telling you they hated everyone and everything. And then it came into focus and it wasn't that thing at all. And then it came into focus again, uplifting and heartbreaking and (a word that I use sparingly) relevant. The kind of story leading to a last panel that's all pain and joy and delivers the whole thing. What a masterwork. To understand all is to forgive all."--Neil Gaiman

"[A] sly dark comedy with an eerie sci-fi twist... This one's for curious indie-comics readers who enjoy being surprised."--Publishers Weekly
