A full-color existential thriller from the creator of Hey, Wait… Imagine a long-forgotten, never-produced Alfred Hitchcock «wrong man» thriller screenplay discovered, adapted and filmed by a modern minimalist like Jim Jarmusch and you’ll have some idea as the unique flavor of Jason’s latest graphic novel, Why Are You Doing This? The protagonist, a moody twenty-something wallowing in depression after a breakup with his long-time girlfriend, finds himself drawn into a paranoid’s worst nightmare after his best friend is murdered and the blame is pinned on him. With the help of a single mother who spontaneously throws in her lot with him (not to mention her precocious daughter), he sets out to clear his name. Soon new relationships are forged, dark secret from the past are revealed, and the real killer comes back into the picture…with a vengeance. Although in many ways completely different from such earlier works of Jason’s as Hey, Wait…, You Can’t Get There from Here and The Iron Wagon (for one thing, it’s in full color), Why Are You Doing This? displays the same familiar laconic wit, stylized anthropomorphic characters, and elegant storytelling as these earlier masterpieces.
Ulysses S. Grant’s second term is ending, and the USA must elect a new president. After the many corruption scandals of the previous administration, the Republican Party has selected an upstanding candidate, Rutherford B. Hayes. However, a rich Texas oil tycoon with his eye on the White House has other ideas, and money can buy many votes… or bullets. Luke is called upon to protect Hayes as he tours the wild, wild West?
Circles features the graphic-novel-length epic title story, in which Usagi returns to his native village only to find everything very different indeed. (The discovery that his mentor, whom he thought dead, is actually alive and kicking is only the first of the shocks that await him.) «Circles» is an epic adventure, a love story, and one of the most affecting Usagi stories ever. In addition to the 80-page «Circles,» this volume includes «The Bridge,» «The Duel,» and the hard-to-find «The Tangled Skein» from Critters #38. Jam-packed with lethal sword battles alternating with humor, horror, suspense and slapstick, this beautifully crafted and exciting volume (with an introduction by Jeff Smith) is both an excellent starting point for new readers, and an absolute necessity for Usagi completists.
