Editorial Reviews

Review

Krell's character-driven tales are fun and witty. He's got a great ear for dialogue; you can hear Jayson and the other players speak their lines as you read them. --Tony Isabella, Comics Buyer's Guide

Krell is unafraid to play with genre conventions, effortlessly maneuvering the characters between scenarios involving sex, politics, comedy, and even science fiction. --Jay Laird, Edge

About the Author

Jeff Krell created the groundbreaking comic strip Jayson, which debuted in the Philadelphia Gay News in 1983. By 1985 Jayson had achieved national prominence in Gay Comix, where the strip was named Most Popular Feature. Jayson then became a staple in Leyland Publications' Meatmen series of gay male comics anthologies, gracing nearly twenty volumes. In 1990 Jayson debuted in national syndication. Krell collaborated with singer/songwriters Ron Romanovsky and Paul Phillips to produce an off-Broadway Jayson musical at The 45th Street Theatre, which The New York Times praised for its "tart, keenly observed humor." The show ran for 10 weeks in the summer of 1998. Krell's first collection of Jayson cartoons, Jayson: A New Collection (1997), contained all of the stories that inspired the musical. In 2005 Krell published two well-received retrospectives, Jayson: Best of the 80s and Jayson: Best of the 90s. In 2008, on the eve of Jayson's 25th anniversary in comics, Krell unveiled Jayson Goes to Hollywood, an original graphic novel that received the Full Five Tonys (highest rating) from Tony Isabella in Comics Buyer's Guide and two nominations for CBG Fan Awards: Best Writer and Best Graphic Novel of 2008. Krell followed that up in 2012 with his second original graphic novel, Jayson Gets a Job! Krell also translated and published English versions of two works by famed German gay cartoonist Ralf König. Maybe... Maybe Not (1998) and Maybe... Maybe Not Again! (1999) were the basis for one of Germany's highest grossing comedy movies. These works proved so successful that Krell has since acquired the English-language rights to two other graphic novels by Ralf König, The Killer Condom (2009) and its sequel, Down to the Bone (2011).
