This time out, Highly acclaimed Norwegian cartoonist, Jason, mixes his tried and true graphic sensibility in with a little creative reimagining of literary history. Set in the "Latin Quarter of Paris sometime during the 1920s," The Left Bank Gang follows the lives of Ernest Hemingway, F Scott FItzgerald, James Joyce, Ezra Pound and Gertrude Stein in a reality in which... all were cartoonists rather than writers! In the grand tradition of cartoonists who follow their muse rather than a paycheck, they are all in desperate straights for cash, and this leads to the primary plot line, at which the title intimates. This 48-page full color graphic novella is rendered in Jason's trademarked clean, understated and highly engaging style which is full of clever narrative twists. Enjoyable, as always.
