Julian Hanshaw won the Observer/Comica short story award in 2008 for "Sand Dunes and Sonic Booms." 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.
His most recent graphic novel, Tim Ginger, was shortlisted for the British Comic Award and the LA Times Book Award, and his new book, Cloud Hotel, is coming from Top Shelf in mid-2018.
He lives on the south coast of the UK with his wife Sarah and spends too much time thinking about cricket.
Once a government test pilot, now a widow, 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.
The noodle soup called pho is the national dish of Vietnam. When Little Blue-- having been dropped by a mysterious man with a red car and being told to count to 500 -- finds himself in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam's baffling, daunting capital, his salvation is his own mobile pho stand.
I'm Never Coming Back is a collection of surreal, comic and mournful interweaving tales travelling across three continents. Elsewhere an out-of-towner meets a crab at a taco stand who seems to know more than any crab has a right to know.
