The Complete Jack Survives by Jerry Moriarty. $34.95. Hardcover, oversized, full color, 80 pages. Published by Buenaventura Press.

I remember when this came out, ordering a dozen copies for the store I did book buying for, and watching everyone ignore it. Don't be like them! Hopefully time has forced comic readers to evolve and appreciate this masterpiece. This is one of the greatest comics around, and Buenaventura Press spared no expense in presenting it with the upmost dignity. A lot of this appeared in RAW, but we should be grateful it exists as a book. There's no one else like Moriarty...maybe Charlotte Salomon comes close? Half painting, half storytelling, all comics, but comics that only exist in this exact way in this exact book.
