Complete Jack Survives HC (2009) comic books
1st printing. Story and art by Jerry Moriarty. This oversized, full-color edition gathers all the Jack Survives strips and presents them as creator Jerry Moriarty intended. Moriarty's painted comics offer slice-of-life vignettes that express a somehow fanciful yet deadpan take on the humor inherent in everyday moments. Since Jack Survives first appeared in Art Spiegelman's groundbreaking anthology RAW in the 80's, it has been lauded for Moriarty's innovative use of the comics medium. Introduction by acclaimed cartoonist Chris Ware (Jimmy Corrigan). Hardcover, 11-in. x 14-in., 84 pages, PC/PB&W. Cover price $34.95.
