“Short, stylish and witty, this will appeal to anyone with a wicked sense of humour and a love of the absurd.” – Grovel

In this collection of hilarious shorter pieces, Jason unleashes his inner Scandinavian goofball. God, the Devil, mummies, vampires, zombies, werewolves, reanimated skeletons, space invaders, Death, cavemen, Godzilla and Elvis populate these most often wordless blackout gags, side by side with Jason's usual Little-Orphan-Annie-eyed, rabbit-and-bird-head protagonists – a "lighter side" of one of the best cartoonists of the new millennium.

“The protagonists of Jason's funny stuff [in
Meow, Baby!], like those of his graphic novels, are tall and thin with animal heads. They include a reanimated mummy, zombies, a vampire, a Frankenstein monster, an angel, a devil, a werewolf, and other monster and science fiction movie icons, whose eldritch auras suggest a noirishly oppressive atmosphere. Meanwhile, the comedy they play out, usually wordlessly, is the whimsical, fanciful, incongruous stuff of physical comedians from Chaplin to Gleason. Jason presents them in the deadpan, no-frills manner of Ernie Bushmiller's bedrock comic-strip classic, Nancy.” – Booklist

“Jason is one of my favorite creators working in comics today.”

Grovel

•Graphic novel review site

“Jason’s full length books have a style all of their own – anthropomorphic animal characters give his work a cartoonish look that disguises a far deeper and tragically comic view of the world. Meow, Baby! is a collection of shorter pieces but the style is unmistakably Jason’s … His timing is impeccable, and his art and scripting are pared down to the raw basics, leaving nothing but a series of deadpan jokes, masterfully told in his inimitable style.”

High-Low

•Comics blog

“Jason is one of my favorite cartoonists, a master of pitch, tone and composition. His comics are simultaneously hilarious and tinged with sadness, a balance achieved in part through his use of a ‘funny animal’ motif.”
