Product Overview

The acclaimed graphic novelist Jason returns with his most eagerlyawaited book yet, thanks to the inclusion of the title story, theworld?s first (and likely last) chess western, originally serialized in2008 in the New York Times Sunday Magazine ?Funny Pages? section.

This 216-page hardcover book features five yarns?all brand newwith the exception of the aforementioned ?Low Moon,? which is collectedinto book form for the first time.

The new stories lead off with ?Emily Says Hello,? a typicallydeadpan Jason tale of murder, revenge and sexual domination. Then, thewordless ?&? tells two tales at once: one about a skinny guy tryingto steal enough money to save his ill mother, and the other about a fatguy murderously trying to woo his true love. The reason we follow thesetwo parallel stories becomes obvious only on the very last page, inJason?s inimitable genre-mashing style.

?Early Film Noir? can best be described as The Postman Always Rings Twice meets Groundhog Day.But starring cavemen. And finally, ?You Are Here? features alienkidnappings, space travel, and the pain and confusion of family ties,culminating in an enigmatic finale that rivals Jason?s greatest twists.

Funny, poignant, and wry, Low Moon shows one of the world?s most acclaimed graphic novelists at the absolute peak of his powers.
