Jesse Jacobs has long been a leader in the Canadian underground comics scene, and it’s easy to understand why with one peek at Safari Honeymoon. A poetic and humorous voice within a community that's known to break with the conventions of visual storytelling, I findJacobs' work to be well worth pouring over multiple times. His attention to detail with both dialogue and illustrative form makes for a body work that’s a pleasure to recommend!

Join a pair of young newlyweds as they descend deep into a mysterious forest, encountering unknown creatures and unimaginable landscapes. Amongst the unusual flora and fauna, they discover within themselves something more strange and terrible than any sight their safari has to offer. Safari Honeymoon is a tale of jungle love and jungle madness.
