A new short story collection by Austin English, an innovative cartoonist and growing star in NY’s Chelsea gallery scene.

"Austin English’s drawing is gelatinous, daubed, stroked, smeared, erased, redrawn, sculpted, twisted, cringes, flattens out as it squashes inward, maybe reminds one of a landscape and populace for Stravinsky folk songs, or a dream program for tragic Polish puppet plays, crowded, self-replicating and worth checking out." — Gary Panter

Gulag Casual smashes faux-grotesque drawing into crude panels, narratives tease literary tropes all the while pushing the lexicon of comics further into the 21st century." — Esther Pearl Watson

"Beautiful minimalist portraits." – The Comics Journal

"Genius." – Giant Robot Magazine

Gulag Casual, by acclaimed illustrator and cartoonist Austin English, presents some of the most mature and sustained work yet from a constantly challenging and essential artist. This new suite of short stories collects material from 2010–2015, showcasing the kind of imaginative imagery which firmly establishes English as one of the most innovative cartoonists in practice today.

Austin English lives and works in New York as an artist, cartoonist, and publisher. His illustration work has appeared in the New York Times and has been exhibited in galleries all over the world, including Montreal, Stockholm, Croatia, and New York.
