Giveaway: Tom Gauld’s Mooncop

moon

London-based illustrator and cartoonist Tom Gauld probably doesn’t need an introduction. His work has appeared in outlets like The New Yorker, The Believer and The New York Times. He’s also been doing a weekly series of comics for The Guardian’s Saturday Review since 2005 — a collection of which became his second comic book, You’re All Just Jealous of My Jetpack (2013).

His latest masterpiece, Mooncop, is similar in tone to his first graphic novel, Goliath (2012) — a deadpan retelling of the Bible story. Set in a future where the idea of living on the moon isn’t just a possibility but a reality so passé that the one remaining policeman has little to do other than watch the last few colonists move back to Earth, Mooncop brilliantly side-steps obvious drama, focusing instead on things that are far more mundane and all too relatable.

Mooncop hits stores September 20th! Thanks to our friends over at Drawn & Quarterly, we have two copies to give away! They also put us in touch with Tom, who was kind enough to tell us a bit about his process, how he stays motivated and what had him laughing so hard he had to stop drawing! Check out the full interview below and share your favourite book or movie set in space in the comments for your chance to win!

Will Laren’s Tat Squad #3 Zine

will-laren07

One of my absolute favourite artists on this whole damn planet, Will Laren, is releasing a new zine Tat Squad #3. I’m the proud owner of a couple original drawings by him and a huge supporter of what he does because everything he makes is my favourite. Go follow him on Tumblr, and Instagram, and order his zine.

He wanted me to tell you his Tat Squad Oath is that if anyone out there gets a real tattoo of one of his designs in the zine that entitles you to free Tat Squad zines for life (all future issues).

Have a look at more drawings from the zine below.
