FavoriteThing(s)ThisWeek - More from Jason

So, I picked up a couple more comic books from Jason. I think it was Issac at parabasis who told me that the comics of Jason's without text were the best. All I can say to that is that these two books with text were still quite wonderful little stories.

Love, Loyalty, Heroism are drawn so simply here, but even if the art is clear efficient and direct, the relationships between Jason's men and women are complex and dense. He uses just the right amount of image and word (sometimes no words) to elucidate tensions between lovers, and in the Last Musketeer between long ago friends.

Really, go to the library and check these out. Wonderful little books, that I can't recommend enough!
