Joseph Remnant’s first original graphic novel Cartoon Clouds follows the recent Art School graduate Seth Fallon and his three friends as they try to navigate that anxiety fueled time between finishing school and trying to figure out what the hell they’re going to do with the rest of their lives. With a mountain of debt and no clear path to financial or emotional stability, Seth struggles to find a creative direction that won’t leave him homeless. In this world of fashion conscious art snobs, talentless social media “gurus”, and drug addled, trust fund hipsters, he tries to hold on to the few meaningful relationships he has when the institution that held them together is no longer a part of their lives.

Drawn in a naturalistic style while never losing its essential cartoon idiom and written as an ongoing conversation among the characters that uncannily captures the preoccupations, fears, and ambitions of twentysomethings embarking upon their life, the philosophical nature of
Cartoon Clouds is reminiscent of the films of Erich Rhoemer or Noah Baumbach.

Cartoonist Joseph Remnant has been a prominent presence in the cartooning scene over the last decade, self-publishing his own comic book
Blindspot, illustrating Harvey Pekar’s acclaimed Cleveland, and appearing in such magazines as The Believer.

Comics Beat

•Comics website and blog

… his keen sense of pacing and composition [creates] a work that has a pathos that stays with readers long after the last page is read.

Library Journal

•US Library Magazine

Remnant takes aim at the art world with dead-on satire: who sleeps with whom and why, living for art vs. for status, and the many ways one-upsmanship peeks out at studios, parties, faculty advising, and exhibits.

Publishers Weekly

•Publishing trade magazine

Remnant has an acerbic sense of humor and a keen ear for dialogue.
