The voyage of Jason and the heroes aboard the Argo is one of the more famous Greek myths. Jason’s quest is to find the golden fleece and bring it back to his homeland. En route, the Argonauts—as he and his companions are called—have many frightening adventures as they travel far from home. With the help of the gods and of Medea, who has fallen in love with him, Jason meets the challenge. But when Jason and Medea marry and return to Greece, their life turns tragic. As readers follow the suspenseful tale of Jason and the Argonauts, they will glimpse a lively Greek culture—and in these characters, they may recognize a piece of themselves.

IN SEARCH OF JASON is the story of Jason Reilly, a lowly employee at B. Pictures, a cut-rate New York City film production company, whose owner, Mr. B. is a confidante of many curious characters inhabiting both sides of the law. In the course of one of his many errands for Mr. B., Jason goes to hand some papers to a diplomat at the United Nations and in the course of his time there, misplaces a film script he was carrying. From that loss, dire consequences arise, for the film for which the script was written was to have been shot in the Caribbean, with the production serving as cover for a drug-courier operation run by one of Mr. B.s less-than-legitimate pals, an underworld dynamo named Sicky. In addition to his illegal interests, Sicky has entertained a lifelong legitimate interest in some day becoming a major feature film producer. Thus, the idea of someone like Jason not only endangering his profits, which would be bad enough, but also imperiling his cinematic opportunity of a lifetime is an outrage to which the only answer can be one of summary execution! Now, its one thing when youre seeking to prove your innocence to a law officer who, theoretically, is subject to some constraints, but when youre trying to explain yourself to a paranoid gunman who acknowledges no laws save those in his own, options become more limited. Such is the case for Jason. So, after narrowly avoiding being murdered in his bed and getting run over by a speeding car aimed at a pay phone booth hes calling from, Jason makes his escape from the city. He heads for the New Jersey Turnpike, Chesapeake Bay, Virginia, the Carolinas, Georgia, the Florida swamps, Miami and, finally, the Caribbeans blue carpet. Along he way, he picks up a partner in crime - or perhaps innocence. Dr. Sam Albert is a former 1960s college revolutionary, present-day psychiatrist and off-hours bush pilot, whose set of wings Jason finds useful in Miami, when the ships captain hes hired to take him afloat begins to cause problems. Later, while island-hopping in the Caribbean with Albert, Jason gets, unwittingly, another partner in the form of Aringapu, a Central American Indian whose ancestors, 500 years earlier, were either massacred or driven off the very island where Sicky now proposes to set up his supreme shoot. You wouldnt expect Jason to come to earth practically right under Sickys Ray-Bans. Youd think it would be the last place Aringapu would want to turn up in, too. Youd think, above all, that the good Dr. Albert, skilled in providing wise counsel and comfort, would look out for Jasons interests and fly him out at once. Youd be wrong on all counts, particularly on the last! You might also expect, on this page, to find out how it all wraps up, but this place is meant to stimulate your appetite, not satiate it. All that can be said for now is that, in a curious and appropriate way, the punishment fits the crime.

One thing to remember if nothing from this book is you came from nothing and you will be returning to nothing so why do you need anything. Like attracts like. If you’re not on the same page as your divine spark you will feel distant, empty and lost. That emptiness is you reaching out to you to bring you home but you can only do it by showing yourself the obstacles of the things you don’t want to have in your life. Life is not about the amount of times you fall down but the amount of times you get up. Every encounter you have is a divine encounter with yourself giving you the gift (choice) to make a different experience take place. You need to exhaust all your wants, needs and desire to truly know that all you need is love. You don’t need to find your divine spark. It’s within you, just remove the layers that are covering it up (that were put there by you). Your EGO is a closed loop. Its job is to keep you entertained and the program of EGO Land is a surrender program. When you want, crave and pray for things like happiness, abundance, and health you are praying to reveal the GOD inside you. Once you awaken the divine spark within you that’s how you manifest all the things you are praying for, all the amazing things for yourself and for others. I am writing this for you as you but I am me speaking to you to help you remember who you are. You are in EGO Land in order to experience the duality of what is to be separate from your self. The difference between you and me is I know I am writing this to myself to wake you up to yourself.

One of Europe's most exciting young cartoonists makes his American debut. This superbly evocative graphic novella by the award-winning Norwegian cartoonist Jason (his first appearance in the English language) starts off as a melancholy childhood memoir and then, with a shocking twist midway through, becomes the summary of lives lived, wasted, and lost. Like Art Spiegelman did with Maus, Jason utilizes anthropomorphic stylizations to reach deeper, more general truths, and to create elegantly minimalist panels whose emotional depth-charge comes as an even greater shock. His sparse dialogue, dark wit, and supremely bold use of "jump-cuts" from one scene to the next (sometimes spanning a number of years) make Hey, Wait... one of the most surprising and engaging debuts of the year.
