    Artist Sven moves from Scandinavia (wait: artist?! And could Scandinavia actually be Norway?! Is this semi-autobiographical?! Do tell!) to Montpellier, France (where Jason now lives! Ha! Another clue!) for ill-fated romance; he?s goofy, likes to go out at night and slip into people?...

    Sigh. It's not easy being a foreign, anthropomorphic jewel thief living a restless life in southern France, especially when the neighbor you seem genuinely content to spend all your time with is in a committed same-sex relationship with another woman, and even more especially when your...

    The illustrations in Jason's books are pretty amazing. The author's ideas are unique and his presentation is brilliant. ...

    There is something so spare and driven and atmospheric in this artist's work. So neat and attentive to form. A very similar feel to watching cartoons, dark and mature, and yet full of the immaturity of real adulthood. HIs people are all animals, from birds to dogs to werewolves. They a...

    An artist living in Montpellier lives a quiet existence filling his sketchbook with life drawings, playing chess with his friend, going to soirees and meeting girls, and getting drunk. It's a gentle life. And then once a month he dresses up as a werewolf, stalking the rooftops, and bre...

    Finally gave this one a re-read. I liked it quite a bit! 2014 Pretty light-weight for a Jason comic. I'm not really sure what Jason was trying to do here. He seems to combine crime fiction, werewolf-type fiction, and low-key daily-life drama in an ineffective way. That being sai...

    I like Sven, I just do. ...

    This felt like someone had taken every stereotype that's ever existed of the Incomprehensible European Underground Comic Book and had deliberately made an over-the-top omnibus of them all, then put it in my neighborhood library in front of a hidden camera just to get my reaction when t...

    Free comic! It was fun. A complete story as it is, but would probably be fun to continue. The art was interesting, and the eyes made it hard to tell characters apart. I loved the idea that a dog would dress up as a werewolf by putting on fake feet and teeth, like a human dresses as ...

    My favorite Jason book. This slim volume is a very droll slice-of-life, a low-key relationship drama interspersed with wonderful craziness. As always with Jason, it is what it is, and what it is is pretty awesome. ...

    There can never be enough Jason. ...

    i keep reading jason's gn although i never know how i feel about them. i like his illustrations most of the time but the stories sometimes fall flat for me. so i don't know if i like them or not but i guess i'll keep reading his stuff to maybe find out. ...

    I think I?ve actually come across a book that earns the title Graphic Novel. The vast majority of graphic novels I read are simply the fun, super hero types that, in my mind, are simply bound comics (I realize this distinction may make no sense to anyone else, but it works me). Howev...

    Classic Jason. The story always seems just a bit underwhelming at first, but that's because it's always just a bit out of reach. In reality, what's going on is pretty dramatic and interesting, if you pay enough attention to the plot. This was a good one; I enjoyed the werewolf bent, wh...

    More deadpan, dry wit from Jason, this time about a jewel thief in Paris who dresses as a werewolf (to buy himself an extra second if he's discovered). But the real werewolves don't like his antics. Mostly, it's also about his awkward relationships with a few friends, including a cute ...

    First Jason for me. His scenes are small snippets that emphasise mood over events, and he tends toward understatement. Makes for a strange, incomplete reading experience that nevertheless propels you on and drags you into the story. ...

    Jason has a real talent to combine dark, sometimes very brutal themes with humour and light, witty dialogues. "Warewolves..." are another example of that. Short but very well written and drawn story which will please every fan of his work and maybe gain him some new readers. ...

    A great short read. The art and the writing are amazing; they fit the funny yet melancholic tone perfectly. ...

    Thoroughly odd and rather charming in a twisted way. ...

    A blend of the absurd and the thrilling, this book by Jason may be my favorite. ...

    I frequently enjoy this creator's comics, but this one just didn't come together for me. ...

    This felt like someone had taken every stereotype that's ever existed of the Incomprehensible European Underground Comic Book and had deliberately made an over-the-top omnibus of them all, then put it in my neighborhood library in front of a hidden camera just to get my reaction when t...

    Free comic! It was fun. A complete story as it is, but would probably be fun to continue. The art was interesting, and the eyes made it hard to tell characters apart. I loved the idea that a dog would dress up as a werewolf by putting on fake feet and teeth, like a human dresses as ...

    My favorite Jason book. This slim volume is a very droll slice-of-life, a low-key relationship drama interspersed with wonderful craziness. As always with Jason, it is what it is, and what it is is pretty awesome. ...

    There can never be enough Jason. ...

    Had a good trip of witty and light laughs. ...

    I just re-read this this morning after having just watched "Breakfast at Tiffany's" for the first time. There are some clear aspects of tribute, unless I'm seeing things. The entryway to the apartment building definitely. I love Jason; how he can draw two lines, one flat and one short ...

    I've encountered and enjoyed Jason's comics a couple of times before, but this new story - about Sven, the jewel thief of Montpellier, and his circle of friends - is a particularly impressive tangle of genres, wonderfully paced and handsomely drawn. The mixture of vague existential ...

    i keep reading jason's gn although i never know how i feel about them. i like his illustrations most of the time but the stories sometimes fall flat for me. so i don't know if i like them or not but i guess i'll keep reading his stuff to maybe find out. ...

    I think I?ve actually come across a book that earns the title Graphic Novel. The vast majority of graphic novels I read are simply the fun, super hero types that, in my mind, are simply bound comics (I realize this distinction may make no sense to anyone else, but it works me). Howev...

    Classic Jason. The story always seems just a bit underwhelming at first, but that's because it's always just a bit out of reach. In reality, what's going on is pretty dramatic and interesting, if you pay enough attention to the plot. This was a good one; I enjoyed the werewolf bent, wh...

    More deadpan, dry wit from Jason, this time about a jewel thief in Paris who dresses as a werewolf (to buy himself an extra second if he's discovered). But the real werewolves don't like his antics. Mostly, it's also about his awkward relationships with a few friends, including a cute ...

    First Jason for me. His scenes are small snippets that emphasise mood over events, and he tends toward understatement. Makes for a strange, incomplete reading experience that nevertheless propels you on and drags you into the story. ...

    Jason has a real talent to combine dark, sometimes very brutal themes with humour and light, witty dialogues. "Warewolves..." are another example of that. Short but very well written and drawn story which will please every fan of his work and maybe gain him some new readers. ...

    A great short read. The art and the writing are amazing; they fit the funny yet melancholic tone perfectly. ...

    Thoroughly odd and rather charming in a twisted way. ...

    A blend of the absurd and the thrilling, this book by Jason may be my favorite. ...

    I frequently enjoy this creator's comics, but this one just didn't come together for me. ...

    More graphic novels/comics should take advantage of what the medium can offer. ...

    It's so short so it feels not quite fleshed out. Loved it though. ...

    The story is short but I had fun with it. The concept is great. There isn't a whole lot here quantity wise or even dialogue wise, but it felt longer because the medium was used to maximum effect. ...

    Can't go wrong with "Jason." ...

    Um... I have no idea what to make of this comic. I have heard of "indie" music, and I had (I guess) heard of indie comics via the term "underground" comics or "small sellers". This is the first time I've ever read such a comic, though. The premise is that an artist has moved to Fran...

    Wow. So this book is supposedly highly critically acclaimed, but it reminded me a bit of some French cinema (appropriate it's set in France, I suppose?) in that you keep reading/watching expecting the pieces to come together and they never do. The whole thing felt like it was overly pr...

    Artist Sven moves from Scandinavia (wait: artist?! And could Scandinavia actually be Norway?! Is this semi-autobiographical?! Do tell!) to Montpellier, France (where Jason now lives! Ha! Another clue!) for ill-fated romance; he?s goofy, likes to go out at night and slip into people?...

    There is something so spare and driven and atmospheric in this artist's work. So neat and attentive to form. A very similar feel to watching cartoons, dark and mature, and yet full of the immaturity of real adulthood. HIs people are all animals, from birds to dogs to werewolves. They a...

    I think I?ve actually come across a book that earns the title Graphic Novel. The vast majority of graphic novels I read are simply the fun, super hero types that, in my mind, are simply bound comics (I realize this distinction may make no sense to anyone else, but it works me). Howev...

    Classic Jason. The story always seems just a bit underwhelming at first, but that's because it's always just a bit out of reach. In reality, what's going on is pretty dramatic and interesting, if you pay enough attention to the plot. This was a good one; I enjoyed the werewolf bent, wh...

    More deadpan, dry wit from Jason, this time about a jewel thief in Paris who dresses as a werewolf (to buy himself an extra second if he's discovered). But the real werewolves don't like his antics. Mostly, it's also about his awkward relationships with a few friends, including a cute ...

    First Jason for me. His scenes are small snippets that emphasise mood over events, and he tends toward understatement. Makes for a strange, incomplete reading experience that nevertheless propels you on and drags you into the story. ...

    Jason has a real talent to combine dark, sometimes very brutal themes with humour and light, witty dialogues. "Warewolves..." are another example of that. Short but very well written and drawn story which will please every fan of his work and maybe gain him some new readers. ...

    A great short read. The art and the writing are amazing; they fit the funny yet melancholic tone perfectly. ...

    Thoroughly odd and rather charming in a twisted way. ...

    A blend of the absurd and the thrilling, this book by Jason may be my favorite. ...

    Artist Sven moves from Scandinavia (wait: artist?! And could Scandinavia actually be Norway?! Is this semi-autobiographical?! Do tell!) to Montpellier, France (where Jason now lives! Ha! Another clue!) for ill-fated romance; he?s goofy, likes to go out at night and slip into people?...

    Sigh. It's not easy being a foreign, anthropomorphic jewel thief living a restless life in southern France, especially when the neighbor you seem genuinely content to spend all your time with is in a committed same-sex relationship with another woman, and even more especially when your...

    The illustrations in Jason's books are pretty amazing. The author's ideas are unique and his presentation is brilliant. ...

    There is something so spare and driven and atmospheric in this artist's work. So neat and attentive to form. A very similar feel to watching cartoons, dark and mature, and yet full of the immaturity of real adulthood. HIs people are all animals, from birds to dogs to werewolves. They a...

    An artist living in Montpellier lives a quiet existence filling his sketchbook with life drawings, playing chess with his friend, going to soirees and meeting girls, and getting drunk. It's a gentle life. And then once a month he dresses up as a werewolf, stalking the rooftops, and bre...

    Finally gave this one a re-read. I liked it quite a bit! 2014 Pretty light-weight for a Jason comic. I'm not really sure what Jason was trying to do here. He seems to combine crime fiction, werewolf-type fiction, and low-key daily-life drama in an ineffective way. That being sai...

    I like Sven, I just do. ...

    This felt like someone had taken every stereotype that's ever existed of the Incomprehensible European Underground Comic Book and had deliberately made an over-the-top omnibus of them all, then put it in my neighborhood library in front of a hidden camera just to get my reaction when t...

    Free comic! It was fun. A complete story as it is, but would probably be fun to continue. The art was interesting, and the eyes made it hard to tell characters apart. I loved the idea that a dog would dress up as a werewolf by putting on fake feet and teeth, like a human dresses as ...

    My favorite Jason book. This slim volume is a very droll slice-of-life, a low-key relationship drama interspersed with wonderful craziness. As always with Jason, it is what it is, and what it is is pretty awesome. ...

    There can never be enough Jason. ...

    Had a good trip of witty and light laughs. ...

    I just re-read this this morning after having just watched "Breakfast at Tiffany's" for the first time. There are some clear aspects of tribute, unless I'm seeing things. The entryway to the apartment building definitely. I love Jason; how he can draw two lines, one flat and one short ...

    Um... I have no idea what to make of this comic. I have heard of "indie" music, and I had (I guess) heard of indie comics via the term "underground" comics or "small sellers". This is the first time I've ever read such a comic, though. The premise is that an artist has moved to Fran...

    This felt like someone had taken every stereotype that's ever existed of the Incomprehensible European Underground Comic Book and had deliberately made an over-the-top omnibus of them all, then put it in my neighborhood library in front of a hidden camera just to get my reaction when t...

    Free comic! It was fun. A complete story as it is, but would probably be fun to continue. The art was interesting, and the eyes made it hard to tell characters apart. I loved the idea that a dog would dress up as a werewolf by putting on fake feet and teeth, like a human dresses as ...

    My favorite Jason book. This slim volume is a very droll slice-of-life, a low-key relationship drama interspersed with wonderful craziness. As always with Jason, it is what it is, and what it is is pretty awesome. ...

    There can never be enough Jason. ...

    Had a good trip of witty and light laughs. ...

    I just re-read this this morning after having just watched "Breakfast at Tiffany's" for the first time. There are some clear aspects of tribute, unless I'm seeing things. The entryway to the apartment building definitely. I love Jason; how he can draw two lines, one flat and one short ...

    I've encountered and enjoyed Jason's comics a couple of times before, but this new story - about Sven, the jewel thief of Montpellier, and his circle of friends - is a particularly impressive tangle of genres, wonderfully paced and handsomely drawn. The mixture of vague existential ...

    i keep reading jason's gn although i never know how i feel about them. i like his illustrations most of the time but the stories sometimes fall flat for me. so i don't know if i like them or not but i guess i'll keep reading his stuff to maybe find out. ...

    I think I?ve actually come across a book that earns the title Graphic Novel. The vast majority of graphic novels I read are simply the fun, super hero types that, in my mind, are simply bound comics (I realize this distinction may make no sense to anyone else, but it works me). Howev...

    Classic Jason. The story always seems just a bit underwhelming at first, but that's because it's always just a bit out of reach. In reality, what's going on is pretty dramatic and interesting, if you pay enough attention to the plot. This was a good one; I enjoyed the werewolf bent, wh...

    More deadpan, dry wit from Jason, this time about a jewel thief in Paris who dresses as a werewolf (to buy himself an extra second if he's discovered). But the real werewolves don't like his antics. Mostly, it's also about his awkward relationships with a few friends, including a cute ...

    First Jason for me. His scenes are small snippets that emphasise mood over events, and he tends toward understatement. Makes for a strange, incomplete reading experience that nevertheless propels you on and drags you into the story. ...

    Jason has a real talent to combine dark, sometimes very brutal themes with humour and light, witty dialogues. "Warewolves..." are another example of that. Short but very well written and drawn story which will please every fan of his work and maybe gain him some new readers. ...

    A great short read. The art and the writing are amazing; they fit the funny yet melancholic tone perfectly. ...

    Thoroughly odd and rather charming in a twisted way. ...

    A blend of the absurd and the thrilling, this book by Jason may be my favorite. ...

    I frequently enjoy this creator's comics, but this one just didn't come together for me. ...

    More graphic novels/comics should take advantage of what the medium can offer. ...

    Artist Sven moves from Scandinavia (wait: artist?! And could Scandinavia actually be Norway?! Is this semi-autobiographical?! Do tell!) to Montpellier, France (where Jason now lives! Ha! Another clue!) for ill-fated romance; he?s goofy, likes to go out at night and slip into people?...

    Sigh. It's not easy being a foreign, anthropomorphic jewel thief living a restless life in southern France, especially when the neighbor you seem genuinely content to spend all your time with is in a committed same-sex relationship with another woman, and even more especially when your...

    The illustrations in Jason's books are pretty amazing. The author's ideas are unique and his presentation is brilliant. ...
