The prize-winning British cartoonist Julian Hanshaw makes his American debut with the rich and meditative story of Tim Ginger. Once a government test pilot, now a widower, Tim enjoys a quiet retirement in New Mexico.... until a conspiracy theorist starts asking uncomfortable questions, and the haunting reappearance of an old friend provokes some hard choices about when to let go and when to hold on.
Bathed in the unearthly light of a thousand desert sunsets, Tim Ginger presents a man who fell to earth... but still hasn't quite hit the ground.
It's wonderful and inspiring to see a generation of authors with no preconceptions about what comics should be, and what sort of stories they should tell, flourish in this new golden age. Tim Ginger is an understated, wryly observed, and welcome addition to this gathering of new voices.
One of the most exciting talents among the new wave of British graphic novelists... Tim Ginger is a long-awaited follow-up from a graphic novelist who has long deserved far, far greater recognition for his work.
Julian Hanshaw won the Observer/Comica short story award in 2008.
His graphic novel works include the Prix-Europa-winning The Art of Pho and I'm Never Coming Back. Julian also contributed to the multi-award-winning Hoax: Psychosis Blues.
He lives on the south coast of the UK with his wife Sarah and spends too much time thinking about cricket and his bowling stats.
