I’ve awaited this book for months now and my expectations for it couldn’t have been much higher, but it still managed to exceed them. There are actually 5 separate stories contained in this book: “Emily Says Hello”, “Low Moon”, “&”, “Proto Film Noir”, and “You are Here” which are all very different in their subject matter and style of storytelling. This makes for a really enjoyable read, because of the variation herein. I was glad to see that this book went less with the slapsticky style of the recent “The Last Musketeer” and went back to a more serious and kind of surreal tone that were seen in “Hey, Wait” and “The Iron Wagon”. Don’t get me wrong though, Jason’s humor still comes through in the surreality of the stories.
Its awesome to see Jason getting his works published in hardcover too, as I feel his comics are deserving of the respect. All in all, this was really enjoyable for me and I would recommend this to both established fans of Jason and people who are looking to see what he’s all about.
