Description


Another all-original collection of full-color graphic novellas in the format of Low Moon, Athos in America takes its title from the lead story, a prequel of sorts to the graphic novel The Last Musketeer, in which the seemingly ageless swashbuckler turns up in a bar in 1920 New York and relates the tale of how he went to Hollywood to play himself in a film version of The Three Musketeers. Another tie-in with a previous Jason story occurs in The Smiling Horse, in which the characters from the story & in Low Moon attempt to kidnap a woman. Also in this volume: The Brain That Wouldn t Virginia Woolf, a mash-up of The Brain That Wouldn t Die and Who s Afraid of Virginia Woolf, told in reverse chronological order; the Bukowski pastiche A Cat From Heaven in which Jason works on his comic, has a reading in a comic book store, gets drunk and makes a fool of himself; the dialogue-free (all the text occurs in thought balloons) Tom Waits on the Moon, in which we follow four people (one of them a scientist working on a teleportation machine) until something goes wrong; and So Long Mary Ann, a prison-escape love-triangle story.
