the silent world of floppy eared dogs, clumsy bears, and near sighted
crows the mysterious Norwegian indie-comic writer, Jason, takes us on a
bent time-travel yarn in which a hit man from the future goes back to
1938 to try to cut Hitler's career short.
As with most of
Jason's comics the stories are silent, subtle tales of love, woe, and
sci-fi. Each panel is simple with not a frame spared or dialogue bubble
Most of Jason's characters are bored lonely animals who live out their
empty lives staring at their broken faces in a mirror or at the bottom
of a bottle. But something always comes along and forces the characters
Within the 48 pages a hit man is bored with life and numb from death as
he is constantly being hired to cap person after person who maybe too
loud, overbearing, or just plain annoying. One fateful day routine is
derailed when our hero is hired by a scientist to go back in time and
kill Adolf Hitler. The time machine takes 50 years to charge so our
protagonist has only one chance. Every things goes wrong and somehow
Hitler ends up in present day.
Through the twists and turns Jason solves our heroes problems with
subtle emotion and symbolic action. A great first book for giving Jason
the try he deserves.
