One of Amazon's 2013 Best Books of the Year: Comics & Graphic Novels

Ranked #25 on Rob Clough's Best of 2013: Top 25 Long-Form Comics at High-Low

Unavailable since 2014, Fantagraphics is proud to re-present Jason’s first long-form graphic novel (after years of critically acclaimed and best-selling graphic novellas) in a newly designed edition. A detective is walking down the street. It is raining. He sees a “Lost Cat” poster. A moment later he sees the cat from the photo and calls the number. A woman answers. They talk and hit it off. When she disappears soon thereafter, the expected, ensuing “mystery” takes decidedly unexpected and unconventional turns. Lost Cat is both a playful take on the classic detective story, and a story about how difficult it is to find a kindred spirit, someone you feel a real connection to — and what you do if you lose that person.

Praise for Jason:

“"When I read Jason for the first time, I was just as excited and devastated as the first time I read the poems of Emily Dickinson and Walt Whitman. Jason's work is poetry.”" — Sherman Alexie

"Any new work from Norwegian cartoonist Jason is worthy of a comics fan’'s full attention ..." — –The A.V. Club

“"One of the medium’'s finest storytellers.”" — Publishers Weekly

"“Although Jason’'s art is attractive ... it’'s his grasp of sociopathy that stays with you. Jason is a master of frisson.”" — Boston Sunday Globe

“"The graphic novel’'s cinematic qualities have rarely been so well wielded as they are by the artist known only as Jason.”" — Bookslut

"... Jason is quite effective in modulating emotion from story to story, going from gags to violence to tragedy, sometimes all in the same story. Jason is in total control of all aspects of his storytelling, and, even after a decade straight of ambitious publishing, it seems as if he’'s just getting warmed up." – The Comics Journal

"... [F]antastic stuff for sad bastards and the people who love them." – National Post
