Almost Silent

$24.99

Almost Silent packages four original Jason graphic novels - three of them out of print since mid-2008 - into one compact, hardcover omnibus collection. (As the title indicates, this volume favors Jason's pantomime works.)

“You Can't Get There From Here” tells the tale, in color, of a love triangle involving Frankenstein, Frankenstein's Monster, and The Monster's Bride. “Tell Me Something” is a brisk near-totally-silent (just a few inter-titles) graphic novelette about love lost and found again, told with a tricky mixture of forward- and back-flashing narrative. “Meow, Baby” is a collection of Jason's short stories and gags, and finally, “The Living and the Dead” is a hilariously deadpan (and gory) take on the traditional Romero-style zombie thriller. All of these yarns star Jason's patented cast of tight-lipped (or -beaked) bird-, dog-, cat- and wolf-people, and show off his compassion and wry wit.
