Mooncop by Tom Gauld

Scottish cartoonist Tom Gauld’s short graphic novel Mooncop is funny, touching and a bit sad, yet still completely charming in its monochromatic coloring and simple drawing and writing style.

Hip Hop Family Tree

Comics artists are obsessive creatures. When one of these beasts latch onto an idea, they'll hang onto it like a street-fighting pit bull. They'll spend countless hours locked up alone in a room sketching, drawing, inking, tweaking and tinkering like a feral varmint. Take Ed Piskor for example.

You're All Just Jealous of My Jetpack: Cartoons by Tom Gauld [Drawn & Quarterly]

You're All Just Jealous of My Jetpack reviewScottish cartoonist Tom Gauld (Mooncop, Goliath) creates damn-near-if-not-perfect comic strips. They’re clever, succinct and hilarious more often than not. Many center around themes of detectives, novelists and literary devices, inventions, and history, many times combining several of these into one strip. Originally appearing in the Guardian newspaper, there are simply too many great comics in this collection to single one out. They are best read oneafter another in a fit of comic gluttony. I recommend this be placed on coffee tables throughout the land in homes where the sense of humor runs dark and dry.

Andre the Giant: Life and Legend by Box Brown [First Second]

Andre the Giant: Life and Legend reviewMany may remember Andre “The Giant" Roussimoff as Fezzik in the Princess Bride or as the heel in WrestleMania III. Never comfortable in his enormous frame, no matter how much fame or money he made, it was lonely for Andre at the top. Box Brown watched interviews and hours of wrestling to put together this illustrated biography of the towering Frenchmen, from his early days in rural France to his time as an internationally recognized celebrity. Brown gives life to a man who seemed superhuman to most but who was only too human to those who knew him well.
