To Get Her

Years after hanging up his hero costume, The Jam star Gordon Kirby finds himself facing something more difficult than any villain that might stalk the streets of Montreal: the complexities of a mature relationship where the romance has faded.

Canadian Hall of Fame cartoonist Befnie Mireault brings all his skills and love of the comics form to this, his first original graphic novel. Originally self-published (with support from the Xeric Foundation) solely as a limited edition volume in 2012, To Get Her is now available in  unlimited editions for the first time.

 

The Jam: Super Cool Color-Injected Turbo Adventure From Hell #2

It’s the 21st century’s first feature-length comics tale of Bernie Mireault’s popular Canadian hero series The Jam.

This new, full-color, square-bound paperback starts off with the 38 page The Jam story “A Secret Bowman”, Mireault’s gorgeously-colored never-before-seen comic book adaption of his own prose story. Someone is shooting arrows into the citizens of Montréal, and it’s up to The Jammer to do something about it. But are larger forces at play?

But that’s not all. You also get another all new story, “Avatars of Adventure: Adepts of Arcana,” written by respected author and editor Claude Lalumière and drawn by Bernie. Plus the The Jam story The Chair is printed in color for the first time, and Bernie’s story Dr. Robot vs. Monster (from Madman #12) is reprinted as well. And then there’s a 6-page portfolio of color images in this 64 page issue.
