Almost Silent packages four original Jason graphic vels - three of them out of print since mid-2008 - into one compact, hardcover omnibus collection. (As the title indicates, this volume favors Jason's pantomime works.) You Can't Get There From Here tells the tale, in color, of a love triangle involving Frankenstein, Frankenstein's Monster, and The Monster's Bride. Tell Me Something is a brisk near-totally-silent (just a few inter-titles) graphic velette about love lost and found again, told with a tricky mixture of forward- and back-flashing narrative. Meow, Baby is a collection of Jason's short stories and gags, and finally, The Living and the Dead is a hilariously deadpan (and gory) take on the traditional Romero-style zombie thriller. All of these yarns star Jason's patented cast of tight-lipped (or -beaked) bird-, dog-, cat- and wolf-people, and show off his compassion and wry wit.
