Tom Van Deusen's cartooning seemed perfect from the start, creating himself as a true cartoon character from the first panel I saw. Over the past 5 years, Van Deusen has quietly built up an air tight style, respecting a very Seattle area definition of nuts and bolts cartooning---but the subject of his stories remain wild and unique. Van Deusen is vastly underrated as a comedian on paper---these are FUNNY comics, timed perfectly. So thrilled to have these in the shop.
