Beloved cartoonist Jason returns with four new short stories.

The artist takes a meditative walk along the picturesque Wicklow Way in the Irish countryside, where he encounters a whole lotta sheep. A paean to the life of the inimitable Leonard Cohen, with a few liberties taken. Two private detectives tailing a seemingly ordinary couple soon find themselves caught up in their own personal dramas. And, gee willikers, it’s love at first sight in the whirlwind romance of Bo and Jo — Napoleon Bonaparte and Josephine Baker, that is!

O Josephine! features four new graphic short stories crafted with Jason’s signature dry wit, deadpan humor, and elegantly minimalist style.

Press Highlights:

"O Josephine! is the perfect Jason graphic novel: short, stoic, and surreal." — New York Journal of Books

"Jason’s dry whimsy and equally droll drawings delight even as they bewilder." — Booklist

"These stories manage to be fanciful without running twee, and bizarre without getting gross. Jason continues to be as innovative as he is inimitable." — Publishers Weekly

"Hilarious, brilliant, and dizzying ... [the story] 'L. Cohen: A Life' is definitely worth the price of admission." — Comics Beat
