Eisner-nominee Van Sciver returns with a collection of hilarious and poignant short comics stories.
From 2017 to 2019, cartoonist Noah Van Sciver was creating short stories and illustrations for local magazines and alt-weeklies, in order to serve as what he calls a personal "survival mechanism." All of these comics are collected for the first time in Please Don’t Step On My JNCO Jeans. When do you know you're too old to trick-or-treat? What's the best way to effectively dispose of those teenage ode-filled journals? Where do cherished cereal box prizes go when you grow up? JNCO Jeans, mostly told through one-pagers, holds observations, reflections, and breakthroughs from one of the most prolific and inspirational cartoonists of his generation.
All copies of Please Don't Step On My JNCO Jeans will include an exclusive Fantagraphics bookplate autographed by the author while supplies last.
