(W) Jason (A/CA) Jason
The acclaimed graphic novelist Jason returns with his most eagerly awaited book yet, thanks to the inclusion of the title story, the world's first (and likely last) chess western. Originally serialized in 2008 to a huge (and hugely delighted) audience in the New York Times Sunday Magazine "Funny Pages" section, "Low Moon" made Jason's 2008 appearance at the MoCCA Arts Festival in Manhattan the talk of the prestigious show, catapulting the Norwegian star to an even new level of mass appeal. This 216-page hardcover book features five yarns - all brand new with the exception of the aforementioned "Low Moon," which is collected into book form for the first time.
The new stories lead off with "Emily Says Hello," a typically deadpan Jason tale of murder, revenge and sexual domination. Then, the wordless "&" tells two tales at once: one about a skinny guy trying to steal enough money to save his ill mother, and the other about a fat guy murderously trying to woo his true love. The reason we follow these two parallel stories becomes obvious only on the very last page, in Jason's inimitable genre-mashing style. "Early Film Noir" can best be described as The Postman Always Rings Twice meets Groundhog Day. But starring cavemen. And finally, "You Are Here" features alien kidnappings, space travel, and the pain and confusion of family ties, culminating in an enigmatic finale that rivals Jason's greatest twists.
Funny, poignant, and wry, Low Moon shows one of the world's most acclaimed graphic novelists at the absolute peak of his powers.

How We Ship

How We Ship

Unless otherwise noted, all comics are shipped with a bag and board to lessen the chances for book being damaged in the mail. Other items will also be equally protected when packaging with safety of the item in mind, including bubble wrap and packing paper.

All books are shipped in thick cardboard mailers to reduce the risk of damage while shipping. We have invested in shipping supplies that are specifically designed with for sending comics. We will NEVER send your book in a floppy shipping envelope with no protection support. 

Orders are shipped 1-2 days after your order is placed.

You have the option of shipping with USPS, FedEx or UPS. The rates for each of these will show up in your cart at the time of final checkout and are calculated by the weight of the item. 

Conditions of These Items

We cannot guarantee your ungraded book will be a 9.8. Many times these books don't arrive to us from the distributors in that sort of condition, so it is impossible to promise. Minor damages like light corner dings or light spine dings may be present. Items listed with a stock photo in the listing (not taken by us) will fall under this provision. 

Higher priced books and variant covers, or if an item is being sold as something other than 'New', should have photos of the actual item in the listings so you can judge for yourself before purchase if the damage is acceptable.

We do strive to try and spot all seriously damaged items before they are made available to you for order. But we are human and we do deal with 100s of books everyday, so we have the potential to miss some things on our inspection. If you feel like we missed a glaringly bad damage in your order, or your entire order was damaged by the mail, please contact us and we'll take it on a case-by-case basis to resolve you issue. 

Same rule also applies for collectibles and the light damages their boxes can take.

Can I Pickup in Store?

Some items may be found both in store and online. Others may only be found at specific locations or online only. Our website is not a direct representation of everything that you can find at one of our locations. 

We do offer a Local Pickup option for those that live near our stores. If you are close to Nashville, this option will show up when choosing shipping options in your cart.

Since it is geo-based, this may not show up if you are outside this area. If you would like to pickup this item at Clarksville or Fort Campbell, please contact us and we will be happy to get the item to that store to save you the shipping costs. 

Please remember, our online inventory is located in Nashville, but most of it is not at our Nashville store. So please do not stop by the store with expectation that all of our items online are there as well. 

Items are ready for pickup in at least 24 hours for Nashville pickup. Clarksville and Fort Campbell pickups can vary depending on when our next store-to-store drop off is. We will email you if it can't be done in 24 time frame with an update as to when you can expect it.
