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.

Von Eede Interview Extras|
The Trevor Von Eeden interview I conducted is finally out today! It’s in the latest issue of The Comics Journal (#298) and like the cover states, it’s a brutally honest take on Von Eeden’s early years, working at Marvel Comics, the demise of Thriller, his relations with Lynn Varley & Frank Miller, industry politics, racism, lawsuits, and much more. An excerpt can be seen at The Comics Journal website: http://tcj.com/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=1042&Itemid=48
Behind the cut there are a few interview responses that were edited out from the final piece, a slew of artwork that complements the interview, and creator quotes by Mark Waid, David Mazzucchelli, Tony Isabella, and Erik Larsen. Major thanks to Johnny Bacardi aka jbacardi for his help in connecting me with Von Eeden and for his fantastic Thriller website.
