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.

    Muy bueno.

    Cada vez me cuesta más que una lectura me deje un poso dentro, que vaya recordando y digeriendo durante un tiempo. Y todo lo que voy leyendo de Jason, lo consigue.

    John Arne Saeteroy, o más conocido bajo su seudónimo Jason, nos narra en Espera…el verano de dos jóvenes hasta que de pronto, de sopetón ocurre algo que cambiará ese transcurrir de los días estivales. El autor divide la historia en dos partes, la primera nos cuenta las travesuras y fechorías de Jon, el protagonista, y su inseparable amigo, Bjorn; en el segundo capítulo vemos cómo han transcurrido los años y en qué situación se encuentran estos personajes.
