Flavorwire is all about “dark and funny” You’re All Just Jealous Of My Jetpack

‘Rhett Butler: The Video Game’ and Other Awesome Literary Cartoons by Tom Gauld

Scottish cartoonist and illustrator Tom Gauld is pretty brilliant. His work, like last year’s Goliath, is reliably insightful and literary, with a wryly sweet bent. His newest collection, You’re All Just Jealous of My Jetpack, which hits shelves in the US today, is just as dark and funny — especially if you like books, as Gauld does. Some of the best comics in the collection are the bookish ones, taking chummy digs at everyone from Martin Amis to the Brontës to “proper literature.” After the jump, laugh and feel literary at the same time with a few of his best book-themed comic strips, and then be sure to head on over to his website to check out more of his work.
