The artist takes a meditative walk along the picturesque Wicklow Way in the Irish countryside, where he encounters a whole lotta sheep. A paean to the life of the inimitable Leonard Cohen, with a few liberties taken. Two private detectives tailing a seemingly ordinary couple soon find themselves caught up in their own personal dramas. And, gee willikers, it’s love at first sight in the whirlwind romance of Bo and Jo — Napoleon Bonaparte and Josephine Baker, that is!
O Josephine! features four new graphic short stories crafted with Jason’s signature dry wit, deadpan humor, and elegantly minimalist style.
