Gary Groth asked me for a synopsis of the new book, to be used in the Summer 2015 catalogue. Here's what I wrote:

A somewhat lighter collection of material from Jason this time, consisting of eleven stories that mix pop culture and genres, pastiches and mash-ups. Frida Kahlo is a hired killer. Santo, the Mexican wrestling film star, faces his ultimate challenge. The rise and fall of Chet Baker, told in six pages. Night of the Vampire Hunter. The last word on the JFK assassination conspiracies. A heist story told in non chronological order, that also somehow includes images by Magritte. A big bug story based on the 50's black and white films. And what would Van Morrison's Moondance album look like if it was a horror comic? All as foretold by Nostradamus.
