Murder, Sex, and Talking Animals: Exclusive Comics Excerpt From Low Moon

Norwegian comics artist Jason garnered acclaim for his earlier graphic novels, I Killed Adolf Hitler and Pocket Full of Rain, but his visibility in America exploded when The New York Times Magazine serialized his whimsical Western strip, Low Moon, last year. Now Jason publishes a collection of his short, sharp works, also called Low Moon, in which his trademark anthropomorphic animals get into all sorts of trouble — including, in the story "Emily Says Hello," murder, revenge and sexual domination.
