This 2008 Eisner and Harvey Award-winning classic, unavailable since 2014, is back in print in a newly designed edition! In this full-color graphic novel, Jason posits a strange, violent world in which contract killers can be hired to rub out pests — be they dysfunctional relatives, abusive co-workers, loud neighbors, or just annoyances in general — and as you might imagine, their services are in heavy demand. One such killer is given the unique job of traveling back in time to kill Adolf Hitler in 1939 ... but things go spectacularly wrong.

Press Highlights:

"Dryly riotous ... Jason's minimal drawings, dominated by empty space, and his laconic pacing imply that nothing particularly significant is going on, although there is near-constant gunplay, Hitler is on the loose in present-day Berlin, and World War II is about to be eradicated from history. The effect is something like Grindhouse as rewritten by Harold Pinter." — The New York Times

"Studying this comic is like peering at the gears of a finely-tuned clock, where one marvels at the way everything fits together ... The way Jason is able to swing from playing events for laughs to devastating the audience with tragic, violent events is all made possible by his crisp, clean line and sense of timing ... From beginning to end, I Killed Adolf Hitler may be Jason's most successful book. It's the best-constructed and executed, and filled with the sort of longing and pain common in his works, along with mining the humor to found in those sort of situations as well."  Sequart

"Between the opening note of perverse sexuality and the touching tribute to the permanence of true love at the end, murder, time travel and alternate futures fill in the second act of this astonishing graphic novel... Jason continues to be one of the best cartoonists working anywhere." – Publishers Weekly

"Funny, surreal, sweet and even romantic, I Killed Adolf Hitler is an inspired, quirky lark that lingers delightfully in the mind."  "The Best Comics of 2007," Entertainment Weekly

"... I'm reading Jason's I Killed Adolf Hitler, and I'm doing this thing that I do whenever I read new stuff from Jason which is just freaking out because he's so good at what he does."  Comic Book Resources

"Jason's stories are ultimately about the redemptive nature of love. They are usually cut from a similar cloth and yet they constantly delight and surprise me ... This guy is so good." — The Beat

"Jason delivers the story with typical cinematic grace ... The result is a story that easily transcends the constraints of its genre, ultimately becoming something of a meditation on the quiet truths of human relationships, harnessing the powers of the silent film that exists between dialogue bubbles." – The Daily Cross Hatch

"I Killed Adolf Hitler takes a simple idea and expands it outward into a surprisingly moving meditation on regret, forgiveness and how both might be effected by the opportunity to go back and do it all over again. It's another homerun swing from one of Norway's finest cartoonists." — "Top 50 Comics of 2007," TCJ.com

"Brisk and extremely enjoyable... Hilarious."The List
