Jillian Tamaki on tour for Boundless!
Since the creation of the bestselling (and Eisner award-winning) SuperMutant Magic Academy, Jillian has been hard at work to create a series of evocative and magical short stories that not only showcase her talent as an artist, but her capabilities as a storyteller. Originally published, in part, online for Hazlitt, the pages of Boundless tell stories of people (and creatures) from all walks of life who question their surroundings on the search for meaning, truth, emotional gratification and everything in between. Boundless hits stores May 30th, and Jillian will be on tour this spring, with appearances in Toronto, Calgary, Vancouver, Montreal, New York, and Chicago.
