Staff Reviews

If the dog on stilts didn't grab you, then I'm sorry, there's no hope. Thankfully, hopelessness is one of Jason's choicest themes. Many authors make groundbreaking careers by making the bizarre or exotic seem familiar and relatable. Jason does the opposite. Growing up, getting a job, and falling in love in suburbia never looked so freaky and unnatural. You'll laugh till you cry.



A matching volume to 2009's Almost Silent, What I Did collects three of Jason's acclaimed 1990s graphic novels into a handsome, definitive omnibus format. "Hey, Wait...," the first (and the most critically acclaimed) of Jason's books to be translated to English, tells the story of two childhood friends. A dreadful event midway through the story changes their lives forever. Sparsely told as a series of brief vignettes, "Sshhhh " is one of Jason's virtuoso silent performances, the cradle-to-grave life of one of his bird-headed characters. And the one Jason fans have been waiting for is the long-out-of-print "The Iron Wagon," an ingenious, atypically (for Jason) talky murder mystery set in early-20th-century Norway, adapted from a classic Norwegian novel by Stein Riverton--albeit starring Jason's patented blank-eyed animal-headed characters and told in moody two-color panels.
