“Jacobs makes some of the most intricate, most fascinating, and oddest stories in comics today.” – Publishers Weekly

Join a pair of young newlyweds as they descend deep into a mysterious forest, encountering unknown creatures and unimaginable landscapes. Amongst the unusual flora and fauna, they discover within themselves something more strange and terrible than any sight their safari has to offer.
Safari Honeymoon is a tale of jungle love and jungle madness.

Jesse Jacobs was born in Moncton, NB and now draws comics and things from his home in London, ON. He has worked on the Cartoon Network show
Adventure Time, and has appeared in the 2012 and 2013 editions of Best American Comics.

“Jesse Jacobs’ last graphic novel –
By This Shall You Know Him – is probably one of my top 5 favorite comics of the past half decade, making his latest – Safari Honeymoon – one of the books I’ve been most anticipating this year. His comics are weird, smart, beautifully designed and always surprising.” — Rich Barrett, Mental Floss

“That the London, Ontario cartoonist cut his teeth working on TV’s 
Adventure Time makes sense, given the almost stop-motion quality of his critters throughout. But the artist’s concern with the squishy, tactile processes of mutation, infection, and evolution goes beyond what animation captures of life, and gestures instead toward the natural world in all its bewildering complexity.” — Sean Rogers, The Globe and Mail

Publishers Weekly

•Publishing trade magazine

“The writing is terse and effective throughout, full of tantalizing glimpses at the bizarre creatures that inhabit the jungle.”

The Comics Journal

•American comics magazine

“Jacob’s’ vision is artfully and imaginatively presented, with the intricate patterns and designs of his drawings and layouts evoking the rhythms and cycles of nature, delineated in eerie shades of jungle green … Jesse Jacobs is a cartoonist gifted with tremendous imagination and one-of-a-kind visual acumen.”

The New York Times

•American daily newspaper

“The central motif here is parasitic transformation — one species crawling into another and overtaking its body — and, by its end, the book has shifted from an eccentric satire to a vision of union with monstrous nature.” — Douglas Wolk
