Join award-winning cartoonist (SuperMutant Magic Academy, This One Summer) for the launch of her new book: the inventive and incisive . 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 Tamaki’s skill as an artist and storyteller.

Jillian Tamaki is an illustrator and cartoonist based in Toronto. She is the co-creator along with her cousin Mariko Tamaki of the graphic novel Skim, a New York Times Best Illustrated Book and a finalist for the Governor General’s Award. Their second graphic novel This One Summer earned a Governor General’s Award and a Caldecott Honor. Tamaki’s first collection of her own comics was the critically acclaimed New York Times bestseller and Eisner Award-winning SuperMutant Magic Academy.
