Sshhhh! by Jason

I just read another great comic, Sshhhh! by Jason, which is available from Fantagraphics. Below is a description from the website:


“From the Harvey Award-winning author of Hey, Wait… comes this sharp suite of short tales, ranging from the funny to the terrifying to the surreal to the touching, all told entirely in pantomime. Jason’s clean, deadpan art style hides a wealth of emotion and human complexity, leavened with a wicked wit.”



Monkey vs. Robot

I am just now reading Monkey vs. Robot and the Crystal of Power. This is one of the best comics I’ve read in a long time. Here is the description from the Top Shelf Productions website:

Monkey vs. Robot

A factory of self-replicating robots is stripping the jungle of its natural resources, threatening the territory of a colony of nearby monkeys. A series of encounters between the two groups quickly escalates into all out war. For all the book’s humorous and charming appearance, beneath this entertaining veneer runs a stirring examination of the dual nature of existence, the dichotomy within the human mind, and our profound effect on the ecological environment. A modern day fable for adults and kids alike based on the age-old struggle between nature and technology. Definitely Kochalka’s most significant and universally accessible work to date! — 160 pages

Great stuff. Go monkeys! 🙂
