The blurb advertises this one as one of the oldest love triangles in the world: Mad scientist creates monster, mad scientist creates woman for monster, mad scientist And then this for a starting image. His peeping tom characteri Jason, Man you are a bombshell. His peeping tom characteristics were something his creator has not extrapolated. So to compensate for the loneliness of the monster - he creates another one. A companion of sorts.
He his not sure whether they will be together or whether he will tear her apart. After all he is a monster. Nothing can be assured. But the fact remains that the real monster lies within our very own selves. The mad creator sees both the monsters getting along too well. They have become soulmates. He should be happy as a creator. He not only created two people but people who can love each other. That's not an easy thing to do, right? Only that he is now envious of them. Yes, the monsters. His own companion has left him. His assistant is fed up of his erratic behavior and seeking an escape.
And his loneliness is killing him.
So our mad scientist does something that he should not have done. And then they call his creation - the monster! His act is justified. Jason is a master class act with his swinging graphics that flip one page at a time. His pantomime sequence of drawings etches out a story so so heart wrenching that it makes you take a second look. You are honored to be reading this work, dear reader. This is pure class in action. You Can't Get There From Here bears the trademark nonchalance of the writer watermarked with his thirst for the blood of the reader's curiosity.
The fabric woven around the conversations of the assistants in the cafe and the mob that chases one to death. Remember, Jason writes to dread your innerself down. The horrific incidents and the melancholy screams the loudest. There are moments that contains raw acts of passion that are enough to tear your soul apart. Like the one where the monster walks into the misdeed his creator is committing.
Blinded with rage, he becomes what he is named. The grid of 6 panels speak a thousand words with elegance that is one of its kind. Sep 17, David Schaafsma rated it really liked it Shelves: jason , gn-minimalist , art-comics , gn-european. One of my favorite titles for a book though many writers have used it, admittedly. Another genre-bender from Jason, who just loves playing with the conventions of genre as a way of exploring the art of graphic storytelling.
Not his very best work, but it is still great. Oct 30, Sam Quixote rated it really liked it.

Like a kid who uses toys of his favourite characters to create his own stories, Jason takes the cast of the classic Universal Frankenstein movies and concocts a brilliant new tale of love, lost and found. But the Dr sees his two creations happy together and feels the pangs of loneliness and jealousy as his own human partner ha Like a kid who uses toys of his favourite characters to create his own stories, Jason takes the cast of the classic Universal Frankenstein movies and concocts a brilliant new tale of love, lost and found.
But the Dr sees his two creations happy together and feels the pangs of loneliness and jealousy as his own human partner has left him - and then he does something drastic about the pairing. Every page is a 6 panel grid with minimalist detail, only two colours are used, black and a dark blue, and most of the comic is silent with Igor and his friend providing the only dialogue, so the panels for the most part are even less cluttered with word balloons.

Jul 16, Anthony Vacca rated it really liked it. Some grimmer fare from our misanthropic Norwegian scribbler. Utilizing the bare bones of The Bride of Frankenstein 's plot, Jason draws out a nearly dialogue-less story about a sociopathic scientist who decides to play God for a second time, and make Frankie's Monster a babe to keep warm at nights with. But when the bad Doc grows jealous of the innocent love of two resuscitated corpses, he hatches a scheme to get the undead knockout for himself. All the hallmarks of a Jason comic are here: cool p Some grimmer fare from our misanthropic Norwegian scribbler.
