Jason is the most brilliant and entertaining figure in comics today. This book collects his shorter works, all of which feature classic monsters (vampires, mummies, zombies, etc.; also some cavemen and Elvis) in strange and silly and banal situations. A lot of the time they watch television. The genius of Jason is to take stupid characters and situations and make them fascinating and sympathetic and profound. It does not hurt that he puts them into Auster-esque recursive metafictions from time to time.
