Almost Silent collects four original Jason graphic novels — three of them out of print for several years — into one compact and classy hardcover omnibus. “You Can’t Get There From Here,” the longest story of the book, tells the tale of a love triangle involving Frankenstein, Frankenstein’s Monster, and The Monster’s Bride!
“Tell Me Something” is a brisk, near-totally-silent graphic novelette about love lost and found again, told with a tricky and tactful mixture of forward and back-flashing narrative. “Meow, Baby” is a collection of Jason’s smart short stories and gut bustin’ gags. “The Living and the Dead” is a hilariously deadpan and gory take on the traditional Romero-style Zombie thriller. Almost Silent is a perfect starting point for a reader new to the acclaimed Jason's work, as well as a handsome and handy, inexpensive collection for the committed Jason fan.
