Pat Grant is a renowned cartoonist from Melbourne, Australia. His work has appeared in Meanjin, Going Down Swinging, and The Lifted Brow, as well as in magazines such as Artlink, Australia’s Surfing Life, and Tracks -- but all of the best stuff comes out in his zine called Lumpen. He is the recipient of an Emerging Writers Grant from the Australia Council for the Arts, and has been publishing installments of Blue online, to critical acclaim. His other comics include "The Last Sharehouse" and "Waiting for Something to Happen." Top Shelf is proud to join Pat and Australian publisher Giramondo to present Blue, in beautiful hardcover format, as his first graphic novel.
