2002 Harvey Award Winner, most sensible New expertise: this beautifully evocative tale through the award-winning Norwegian cartoonist is a story of formative years friendship and tragedy, and the bad lingering aftereffects thereof.
one in every of Europe's most fun younger cartoonists makes his American debut. This fantastically evocative image novella by way of the award-winning Norwegian cartoonist Jason (his first visual appeal within the English language) starts as a depression early life memoir after which, with a surprising twist halfway via, turns into the precis of lives lived, wasted, and misplaced. Like artwork Spiegelman did with Maus, Jason makes use of anthropomorphic stylizations to arrive deeper, extra common truths, and to create elegantly minimalist panels whose emotional depth-charge comes as a good better surprise. His sparse discussion, darkish wit, and supremely daring use of "jump-cuts" from one scene to the subsequent (sometimes spanning a couple of years) make Hey, Wait... the most mind-blowing and fascinating debuts of the 12 months.
