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.
I love God's facial expressions in this story, especially his satisfied smirk in the last frame of page 1. Jason switched to doing "funny animals" pretty much exclusively shortly after this story, with somewhat less expressive characters.
The angel and devil who run into each other in everyday settings is an often-recurring premise.
Jason also works a lot with other iconic characters, like Darth Vader, Mickey Mouse (as Death), the Three Musketeers, etc. This is from an 8-page story about Dracula.
Dracula wakes up in his coffin, and starts getting ready for the night.
After getting dressed, he flies out of his castle and goes to a nightclub, where he orders a drink.
After striking out with another girl and getting a drink spilled on him, he leaves and goes to a 7-11.
The last page shows van Helsing gloating, then realizing that he has no further purpose in life and getting drunk in an alley.
All the stories are from mjau mjau 5 (1999, 46pp). Almost all of Jason's work has been published in English by Fantagraphics, and I'm guessing these ones can be found in Pocket Full of Rain (2008), a collection of his early work, or possibly Meow, Baby (2006), which focuses on his shorter pieces.
I'd also like to recommend The Last Musketeer, which is absolutely hilarious.
