Tom Gauld with Stephen Collins

Watch here: Edinburgh Book Festival / October 8, 2013

The Gigantic Beard That Was Evil by Stephen Collins drags readers onto the island of Here, where nobody is allowed to have hair. The not-quite bald Dave is assaulted by a massive beard in this story from the winner of the 2010 Observer Graphic Short Story Prize. Guardian cartoonist Tom Gauld's You're All Just Jealous Of My Jetpack is a collection of quirky strips such as The Owl And The Seasick Pussycat and Brontë Sisters: The Videogame. This event, filmed live at the 2013 Edinburgh International Book Festival, brings the two crticially acclaimed Guardian cartoonists together for a deep delve into the world of creating charmingly surreal worlds in comic form.
