Fantagraphics’ proud relationship with the multiple award-winning artist continues with another collection of full-color graphic novellas in the tradition of Low Moon. The title story is a prequel to the graphic novel The Last Musketeer, in which the ageless swashbuckler tells the tale of playing himself in a film of The Three Musketeers. Also included are “The Smiling Horse,” “The Brain That Wouldn’t Virginia Woolf,” the Bukowski pastiche “A Cat From Heaven,” “Tom Waits on the Moon” and “So Long Mary Ann,” a prisonescape love-triangle story. Dry, mordant and all very Jason!
