The Living and The Dead by Jason
I have been passing this over at the HWLC for over a year. The simple line work just didn't have appeal for me at a fast first glance when compared to Frank Miller, Neil Gaiman, and others.
I picked this up though, and I am highly impressed with the storytelling ability of Jason (Yep Just Jason). It is such a quick read you can finish it literally in less than five minutes, but don't let the simplicity and the directness of the images to get you to rip through this too fast. It is a wonderful, phantasmagorical piece that can make you feel for its hero and heroine if you are open to a simple pleasure.
