Jillian Tamaki launches Boundless
Join award-winning cartoonist Jillian Tamaki (SuperMutant Magic Academy, This One Summer) for the launch of her new book: the inventive and incisive Boundless.
At once fantastical and realist, Boundless explores the intersection (and overlap) between the virtual and IRL worlds. From Jenny, who becomes obsessed with a strange "mirror Facebook," which presents an alternate, possibly better, version of herself; to Helen, who finds her clothes growing baggy and her shoes looser as she shrinks away to nothingness, these evocative, strange, and magical stories showcase Tamakiís skill as an artist and storyteller.
