Werewolves of Montpellier
Digital edition available from comiXology

Sven, a semi-aimless Scandinavian artist who has ended up in Montpellier, France on a futile romantic pursuit, enjoys nocturnal raids into other people’s homes, disguised as a werewolf. The way he figures it, the disguise will give him an extra few moments’ advantage vis-à-vis any startled home owner if things get ugly... but he hasn’t taken into account the existence of a society of real Montpellier-based werewolves who do not take kindly to this new pretender.

So while Sven spends his days playing chess and poker with his friends, sketching his way through his picturesque chosen hometown, and coping with romantic dilemmas — both his and those of his best friend, the Breakfast-at-Tiffany’s-obsessed Audrey, who has girl troubles of her own — little does he realize that a genuine threat to his life, and for that matter his humanity, is closing in on him.

Werewolves of Montpellier is a lycanthropic thriller, a romantic comedy, and an existential drama — basically, your typical Jason book. Beware the full moon!

“Another werewolf story to warm the cockles of your heart!” – John Landis

"...Jason is a delight unlike anything else on the comics shelf. … Werewolves of Montpelier establishes yet another inviting corner of Jasonworld. [Grade] B+" – The A.V. Club

Praise for Jason’s Previous Books

"Jason continues to be one of the best cartoonists working anywhere." – Publishers Weekly

"Jason’s work is poetry. Beautiful and frightening. Redemptive and hopeless. He is the Kafka and Keats of the comic world." – Sherman Alexie

"It’s impossible not to love Jason’s hapless cartoon characters; they’re dog-faced descendants of Charlie Chaplin in that way, usually placed into situations far beyond their control or understanding..." – The Stranger

"Jason is — how to put this? — good. Really, really, really good..." – Newsarama

"[Jason is] still one of comics’ best storytellers, and it’s always a treat to spend time in his world of off-brand pulp clichés and not-always-so-funny animals." – The Onion A.V. Club

"[T]he furtive griminess that Jason wrings from his stock character designs is impressive to behold... [y]ou’ll enjoy any number of his typical moments of storytelling grace." – The Comics Reporter
