God, the Devil, Dracula, and Jason|
Minimalist cartoonist Jason has achieved international success among the indie crowd with his mostly wordless stories of wry melancholia. But he started out doing much more straightforward (albeit often surreal) comedy, which may be an easier introduction to his world.
These are some of my favorite stories from his transitional period.

|According to an article on the Nemedian Chronicles, in the platinum issue of Wizard magazine #207, Dynamite Entertainment's Editor-in-Chief Joe Rybandt stated that there was a Sonja/Thor miniseries in the works. "It's not a crossover, but a miniseries that we'll be running some time in 2009 as well."|
Intriguingly, I seem to have come across the same 3-page scene done by a different artist:
And then the 1st two pages of the sequence by someone else:

Comics you really should read...|
I'm in the process of dredging up a couple old recommendations of mine.
First on the list is JLA: The Obsidian Age. This was the crowning point of Joe Kelly and Doug Mahnke's run on JLA, a few years before Infinite Crisis. A mega-arc so big it took two trades to complete, this story could have been even better than it was. A little more refinement, a little more thought during the writing process, and Kelly would have crafted a masterpiece.
*sigh* Ah, well. Even the flawed version that we got was tons of fun.
Time travel, sorcery, and a substitute JLA (consisting of Nightwing, Green Arrow, Major Disaster, the Atom, Hawkgirl, Jason Blood, Zatanna, and others) stepping in to deal with a present-day crisis while the 'regular' JLA was dealing with a threat in 1000 B.C...that period's version of a Justice League (hereafter dubbed as the "Ancient League"), based out of ancient Atlantis, and acting under the impression "our" JLA intended to destroy the world. I'm just going to post the beginning...
( JLA v3: 7 pages from #66, 7 pages from #67, one from #70, two from #72. )
