The first is arguably Jason's best book "Hey, Wait..." which features a childhood friendship torn apart by a tragedy. It's very originally presented with quirky touches like the animal faced characters using stilts instead of cars, and some brilliant techniques to show how childhood ends and a sequence illustrating drunkenness and finally despair. The ending makes you rethink the whole story but the tale stays with you for a long time. It's both touching and clever, and surpasses a lot of expectations readers might have for what the comics medium can do in terms of storytelling.
The second book "Sshhhh!" is a series of non-speaking stories featuring a bird character who goes through his everyday life, surviving on the fringes of society in a bohemian type manner. It's an interesting gimmick, having no dialogue, and there are several pages you'll find yourself turning back to once you've "read" through the sequence.
The third book is the reason why a lot of Jason fans will be buying this book. "The Iron Wagon" is a very rare and long out of print book Jason did years ago. It's an adaptation of a Stein Riverton novel, sometimes called the Norwegian Agatha Christie, who wrote "The Iron Wagon" years before Christie's "The Murder of Roger Ackroyd" was published which used a similar literary device to who Christie is often credited. To say any more would ruin the surprise ending of "The Iron Wagon". It's a haunting murder mystery set in the Norwegian countryside during a holiday retreat featuring a forgotten tragedy and a ghostly iron wagon. Jason's illustrations are as wonderful as always but readers are rewarded with the rare treat of extensive dialogue in a Jason book. It's a very satisfying book with a great story at it's centre and top notch illustration. If you're a Jason fan and haven't read this, I strongly urge you to check it out, it's well worth a read.
Nothing new here then but a well produced omnibus for fans of Jason and for those wondering what the fuss is all about, pick up this book, you won't be disappointed.
