Hilariously deadpan cartoonist Jason returns with four new short stories.
O Josephine! features four new graphic short stories crafted with Jason’s signature dry wit, deadpan humor, and elegantly minimalist style. The artist takes a meditative walk along the picturesque Wicklow Way in the Irish countryside. 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 it’s love at first sight in the whirlwind romance of Napoleon Bonaparte and Josephine Baker!
"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
"Brilliant and dizzying ... [the story] 'L. Cohen: A Life' is definitely worth the price of admission." — Comics Beat
