Comic Book: Jason Comics

John Arne Sæterøy (aka Jason) is a Norwegian comic book artist known throughout Belgium and France for writing/drawing highly stylized "silent comics". His work tends to look like early silent cartoons, with definite influence from old newspaper comics (particularly series like Krazy Kat).

Not for kids.

  • Sshhhh! (2002)

Tropes featured in Jason Comics:

  • Anachronism Stew: The town in "Low Moon" is done in the style of the Old West, but at one point we see the villain using a 1980s-style cellular phone.
  • Arc Words: "Emily Says Hello", from the story of the same name.
  • Serious Business: "Low Moon" features a pair of Wild West archetypes (the sheriff and his black-hatted nemesis) engaged in, not a shoot-out, but a tense game of chess which is treated as if it was almost a matter of life or death.
