"A $5 pamphlet-format thing with some previously unpublished strips and other material about the great Norwegian cartoonist Jason." – Douglas Wolk, Comics Alliance
"If I had $30, I’d also grab Fantagraphics’ Jason Conquers America ($4.99), a collection of some of the cartoonist’s work that’s so far gone unseen in the US, along with pin-up tributes from fans like Mike Allred and Rich Tommaso." – Graeme McMillan, Robot 6
"Following Graeme’s lead I’d pick up that Jason Conquers America book, as I’m trying to be as much of a Jason completist as possible." – Chris Mautner, Robot 6
"...the Jason Conquers America one-shot... features previously unpublished Jason strips and artwork, interviews and a tribute gallery by various artists." – J.K. Parkin, Robot 6
"As a Jason fanatic I'm happy to announce that @fantagraphics' Jason Conquers America is out today! Interviews, cartoons, a must for fans." – Secret Headquarters
32-page full-color 6.75" x 9.5" comic book • $4.95

"CONFLICT OF INTEREST RESERVOIR: What the hell, a pair of comic books? Yes, your holiday-battered pockets may rejoice at the prospect of Jason Conquers America, a 32-page fan-fest dedicated to the Norwegian cartoonist in the title on the occasion of his 10th year in American publishing, with unseen strips, a checklist, interviews, tribute art and more included; $4.99. And then there’s Tales Designed to Thrizzle #7, which is simply the newest thing from Michael Kupperman, about which you’ve likely made up your mind; $4.95." – Joe McCulloch, The Comics Journal
