      Set in Pirate Times, Gwenny’s pop went a-sailing to find the legendary treasure of the Isle of 100,000 graves but never returned. Then Gwenny finds a map to the island in a bottle and joins a swashbuckling crew of pirates to find out what happened to him. But what she discovers is something completely unexpected…Jason is one of my favourite cartoonists and coupled with a great writer like Fabien Vehlmann you get a magnificent book like Isle of 100,000 Graves. Jason’s best known for his sil [...]

      A quirky little book filled with deadpan, gallows humor. Gwenny finds a treasure map in a bottle and talks some pirates into taking her on a hunt for the treasure while looking for her Dad who found a similar map 5 years ago. What they find on the island is much different. Often humorous with a dry wit aged like a fine wine.

      Absolutely hilarious! Loving these graphic novels!

      Hacía tiempo que tenía ganas de leer este cómic, un poco por ver cómo sería el dibujo de Jason con el guión de Vehlmann (a quien no conozco), y es curioso, porque he notado pocas diferencias y casi podría haberla escrito y dibujado Jason en solitario. Quizás Vehlmann tenga un estilo similar, no lo sé.Aunque en un primer momento recuerda sin duda a La isla del tesoro, pronto toma otro rumbo.El humor en este es mucho más acentuado, usa muchos chistes, humor absurdo, y yo encantada porque [...]

      BCDER: 88Jason knocks it out of the park yet again, but this time with the help of the richly talented Fabian Vehlmann. I liked seeing a Jason product with more dialogue than usual. The story is typical of what we’ve come to expect from Jason with a bit of crime noir and a twist near the end. The flat coloring by Hubert is also great per usual. Jason does more with 50 pages or less than anyone else I read.

    6. Allie on said:

      Boy howdy, I love Jason. This story centers on a plucky little lady, Gwenny, looking for her father. He disappeared while looking for treasure on the titular Isle of 100,000 Graves. She finds a map in a bottle, finds a crew to take her there, and uses her crafty intelligence to get to the island. Gwinny reminds me of like Veronica Mars, if Veronica Mars was a terse, Scandinavian cat. Additionally, the school she finds on the island is super funny to me, but I don't want to spoil it.

    7. Meem on said:

      Jason delivers pitch-perfect noir every time. Every work of his is a monument to minimalism. You are a treasure map inside a bottle, you beautiful Norwegian, and I'd be a willing prisoner in your island.

      Three letters summarize my reaction to everything about this graphic novel-wtf. I have been reviewing books here on the site for three years now and thus far this was by far the hardest book to give a rating for. What I liked about this book was that the style of writing and artwork was that difficult to describe weirdness that independent comics seem to have. I also liked the satirical nature of the plot- it was a piratical island adventure story filled with melodramatic characters, unrealisti [...]

      Si se creía que no había alguien con un estilo similar a Jason, se estaba en un error. Jason es único, no hay duda, pero Vellman complementa y queda muy bien en la —ya de por sí— especial narrativa gráfica de Jason. El guionista mantiene esa ternura hacia los personajes, así como el humor absurdo e irreverente. Aunque Vellman lo hace con más desenfado(el humor es mucho más marcado). Creo que por eso hay un "exceso" en los chistes, en repetir la fórmula de lo gracioso o incluso el ch [...]

      A simple story about a clever girl who hires a pirate crew with the lure of map promising a massive, legendary treasure, in the hopes of finding her father whom went missing years before on an island occupied by career executioners-in-training. It was a strange story to read in that it got right to the point and made me wonder what kind of short tale I had gotten myself into, but it developed into quite a fun, cheeky read. And when I came to this line of dialog in the story,"A time-saver, to be [...]

    11. Jason on said:

      I don't even think I can be critical anymore. I'm just a fanboy--everything Jason puts his hand to is great!! Having a different writer on board was a nice change of pace, though Vehlmann's style meshes really well with Jason's. Great stuff!! I particularly liked the ending--a little less abrupt perhaps than the usual for Jason.

    12. Zaz on said:

      This one was fun. The story didn't look interesting at first, but soon there were pirates and other creepy bad characters. I liked that the main characters were smart kids and how the setting was really unusual. The art worked well as in other books by this author with the animal-humans and it was a nice way to tell the story in pictures.

    13. Zack! Empire on said:

      my favorite book so far by Jason, altough he didn't do this one alone, so i'm not sure if you can count it as a Jason book. The hangman's academy stuff was very funny. It was just really enjoyable, and a nice break from all the horror and superhero stuff i've been reading.

    14. Liam on said:

      It's like a better version of Pirates Of The Carribean. The only story drawn by Jason without adult content, as Vehlmann's writing puts Jason's art style in a new 'fantasy/adventure' genre. As light-hearted and funny as Jason gets (even more so than The Left Bank Gang).Simple but enjoyable, hard to fault as a story. I'd be amazed if anyone disliked this, but would also be unsurprised if many readers were not in absolute awe of it. Too unmemorable for a 4* from me and as I could recommend this on [...]

    15. Michael on said:

      It's not quite as clever as a Jason solo outing, but scripter Fabien Vehlmann provides a pleasantly goofy quest and Jason's bright, clean artwork maximizes the fun of it.

    16. Charlotte on said:

      Loved this book. The main character is refreshing. The plot is engaging. The twists are witty.

    17. Ross McLean on said:

      A charming and precocious young girl teams up with a band of rough and tumble pirates in search of a fabled treasure and her long lost father. They try to take advantage of her, but she is always one step ahead of them (as is often the case with precocious young girls). Things really begin to go awry when they wash up on an island used as a school for budding executioners. It's like an unused plot from a Lucas Arts Monkey Island adventure game.Part of what I usually love about Jason comics is ho [...]

      Novelita gráfica que se lee rapidísimo y que yo había evitado por pura desidia. Un amigo muy querido, ilustrador y toda la cosa me la prestó un día pues es gran fanático de Jason. La novelita para mi gusto va demasiado rápido: creo que esas 56 páginas bien pudieron ser 100. Los personajes no se desarrollan muy bien y tienen todo para ser memorables; ya en la tradición de la Isla del tesoro de Stevenson, todos amamos a los piratas y las historias que involucran una isla, un tesoro, un ni [...]

    19. Brendan on said:

      Jason and his co-author present a tidy little tale about a secret island where shadowy people capture and kill anyone with the temerity or poor luck to land. Like much of Jason's work, it's cute without being cutesy, light-hearted and serious at the same time. Jason taps into the same cartoonish horror that Jim Woodring uses to inflate the balloon animals in Frank. In this case, the quest of the little girl for her missing father brims with both pathos and humor, amplified by her pirate companio [...]

    20. William Holm on said:

      Previously I have worried a bit that Jason is starting to repeat himself. So now he works together with a writer which give some new life to his characters. Although I must say that the story is very much in line with what we are used to see from Jason. It is very well executed both the storytelling and the art work. I particularly appreciated the obvious solution to the problem of getting "volunteers" to a school for torture and executions; you simply send out false treasure maps and pirates wi [...]

    21. Ravenhats on said:

      A fast funny, dark and humorous story this work has all the trappings of great Jason work. After finding a bottle with a map to island run by a executioner school where her father was last seen, Gwenny hires a crew of pirates to get her to the island and away from her crazy mother. She then blackmails one of them, and later employs the help of dunce student at the school. This is a bizarre and extremely creative work like most of Jason's titles. The art remains wonderful and expressive, with the [...]

    22. Jacobi on said:

      Jason is a really interesting creator. His art is very sparse and simplistic, and his characters are blunt and one-note, but these elements come together to make wonderful nuggets of stories. I think Jason's stuff works so well because he really is telling stories you cannot find anywhere else. Isle of 100,000 Graves is no different. There are lots of neat little ideas sprinkled throughout Isle, but I think they're more fun to discover them as you read, so I won't spoil any of them here.

    23. Danielroffle on said:

      Though readers familiar only with Jason might be surprised by his latest venture, for those who have also come into contact with Fabien Vehlmann's work the result is almost ridicolously true to what you'd expect; a perfect synthesis of what one knows Jason comics to be like, and what one knows Vehlmann comics to be like. The pulpy setting, melancholy and of course the gorgeous clear line style are Jason's; the sadism is Vehlmann's. The end result isn't as fully satifactory as the works of either [...]

    24. Feather Mista on said:

      Mucho humor negro en una linda variedad de colores. Me hizo acordar a Anita la hija del verdugo, aunque en este caso se trata de la hija de un padre desaparecido que puede haber sido ejecutado en una isla habitada que tira mensajes al mar con señuelos para que la gente vaya y termine como conejillo de indias para los estudiantes de la escuela de verdugos. Bueno, ahora que lo pienso no se parece en nada de nada. Pero es un cómic muy entretenido y con momentos bastante tiernos.

    25. Jonathan H. on said:

      A bizarre little comic about a girl who goes in search of her missing father, who left years ago for the Isle of 100,000 Graves in search of treasure and never returned. Jason's animal-headed characters go through this darkly comic story with their trademark blank expressions. Without giving away too much, it's a violent but funny story about a very clever and resourceful little gril.

    26. Joe on said:

      Amazing and awesome. Much of everything great about Jason's solo work is here with the sadistic charm of Vehlmann. It felt like the two perfectly melded on this joint. Loved it. One minor drawbackI felt like it didn't have that moment of honest humanity that Jason's solo work tends to find. It just wasn't there. But, other than that, it's a fantastically fun read.

    27. Never on said:

      A fine book that I liked, but ultimately it didn't have many of those mindblowing Jason moments of humanity that I've come to expect in his books. Possibly because of the co-author? I can't say. His books always have their ups and downs, though, and none of them are bad. And they take so little time to read I basically think everyone should just read every Jason book as a matter of course.
