You're All Just Jealous of My Jetpack.
You're All Just Jealous of My Jetpack
By Tom Gauld
DRAWN & QUARTERLY
Readers of the Guardian and the New York Times Magazine may recognize the dark humor of Tom Gauld, whose sizable new collection of cartoons pokes fun at literature of all stripes--putting a Beckettian spin on Tintin, for instance, and imagining a Bronte sisters video game--not to mention futurism, religion, modern art, and human hubris and frivolity. In one bit, a pretentious worm derides his inquisitor as superficial for asking, "Are you happy?" The question is redirected at a bird that has arrived to devour the affronted worm. Answer: "Yes."
