Celebrated Norwegian Cartoonist Jason Appears at Fantagraphics Bookstore & Gallery on June 13 for Launch of LOW MOON Graphic Novel

June 3, 2009 - SEATTLE, WA. Fantagraphics Bookstore & Gallery is honored to host an exhibition and book signing by internationally acclaimed comics artist Jason on Saturday, June 13 from 6:00 to 9:00 PM. This event marks the debut of Jason's Low Moon collection, published by Seattle-based Fantagraphics Books.

Low Moon by Jason

Norwegian alternative cartoonist Jason is among the most prolific and influential cartoonists of his generation. His economical narrative approach, clever rendering technique, and singular color sensibility distinguish his sophisticated yet populist style. Low Moon features Jason's recent comic strip of the same name originally serialized in the New York Times Sunday Magazine. Also included are four new stories which display one of the world's most admired graphic novelists at the absolute peak of his powers.

Fantagraphics Books has published no less than 10 volumes of Jason's work in English. In addition to the display of his stunning original artwork, Fantagraphics Bookstore & Gallery will also offer several rare European editions in his native language.

The public of all ages is invited to meet this wonderful artist on Saturday, June 13 from 6:00 to 9:00 PM. DJ Russ, former proprietor of Fallout Records, will spin platters. Fantagraphics Bookstore & Gallery is located at 1201 S. Vale St. (at Airport Way S.) only minutes south of downtown. This event coincides with the colorful Georgetown Second Saturday Art Attack featuring lively visual and performing arts presentations throughout the historic neighborhood.
