Thirty, Cavities and Hemorroids, OH MY! TPB

By Jason Marcy
Published by Landwaster Books, Inc.
ISBN: 1-929684-16-9
198 pages

In Book Two, Jay explores even deeper his relationships with his friends, co-workers and wife, and delves into his own fears and neuroses.

What the critics say:

"Reading this book will make you laugh, cry, and hopefully think along the way." -- Mike Gagnon, Grayhaven Magazine

"Marcy observes humanity in all its absurdity, and comes back to report on his observations with an amused bluntness that is as refreshing as it is honest." -- Alan David Doane, Comic Book Galaxy

Jay's Days Book Three:
The Rise and Fall of The Pasta Shop Lothario TPB

By Jason Marcy
Published by Landwaster Books, Inc.
ISBN: 1-929684-21-5
156 pages

The most recent Jay's Days volume, Book Three marks a significant growth in both Jason Marcy's talents and his popularity. The book starts off with Jay's emotional honesty (and flirting with co-workers!) getting him into huge trouble with his wife, and then movingly tells the true-life story of how Jay and Kris became parents. With humour and genuine emotion, Jay recounts fears over the baby's health, including the SARS crisis, which strikes at the worst possible time.

What the critics say:

"One of the more interesting autobiographical artists working today." -- Marc Mason, Movie Poop Shoot

"A strong personal story that surprises, entertains and it really makes the reader feel like they are a part of the story. You will get drawn into Marcy's life and you won't want to leave." -- Dana Tillusz, Comic Readers.com

"Marcy is as brutally honest about himself and his inadequacies as R. Crumb, but his genuine love for his wife and the lack of any real malice in his screw-ups makes him a much more appealing character than Crumb...readers will laugh at Marcy; they’ll groan when he falls back on bad habits, but ultimately, they’ll care, and damn if the childbirth scene near the end isn’t one of the more moving scenes in comics." -- Chris Allen, Comic Book Galaxy

"A truly engaging and entertaining bit of autobiography informed by that most crucial of storytelling elements, genuine life experience." -- Alan David Doane, Comic Book Galaxy

"If you thought that Joe Matt's PEEPSHOW didn't pull any punches regarding the author's insecurities and questionable actions, and you really liked that, then by gum, Jason Marcy's comics are for you. I only hope that these are therapeutic for Marcy, rather than exacerbating his litany of personal tragedies." -- Christopher Butcher, Previews Review
