The Norwegian cartoonist Jason specializes in comics that take the premises of high-tension thrillers–zombies, assassins, time travel, bank robberies–and transform them into deadpan, reserved domestic comedies. (Also, almost all of his characters have animal heads, just because.) Werewolves of Montpellier, out today, concerns a bored young jewel thief who dresses up as a werewolf for his nocturnal exploits, the friend he’s quietly in love with, and the society of real werewolves who aren’t crazy about the impostor stalking the rooftops of their city. Here’s an exclusive six-page excerpt; we’ll be discussing the book in Techland’s Comic Book Club tomorrow.
