Entirely told in pantomime, this suite of short tales veers from the funny to the terrifying to the surreal to the touching. Like Chris Wares, Jasons clean, deadpan style (featuring animal-headed characters with mask-like faces) hides a wealth of emotion and human complexity, leavened with a wicked wit. Jasons work has also drawn comparisons to Art Spiegelman for the similar ways both artists utilize anthropomorphic stylizations to reach deeper, more general truths, and to create elegantly minimalist panels whose emotional depth-charge comes as an even greater shock. His dark wit and supremely bold use of jump-cuts from one scene to the next are endlessly surprising and exhilarating. Jasons previous book, the graphic novella Hey, Wait..., was released in English to great acclaim in September of 2001. This second book is very much in the same graphic and narrative style.
