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.
“Safari Honeymoon, Jacobs’s new book, is narrower in scope [than By This Shall You Know Him], but in many ways even stranger and more impressive.” — Gabriel Winslow-Yost, The New York Review of Books
“Jacobs makes some of the most intricate, most fascinating, and oddest stories in comics today.” — Publishers Weekly
“The central motif here is parasitic transformation — one species crawling into another and overtaking its body — and, by its end, the book has shifted from an eccentric satire to a vision of union with monstrous nature.” — Douglas Wolk, The New York Times
Jesse Jacobs was born in Moncton, New Brunswick, and now draws comics and things from his home in London, Ontario. He has worked on the Cartoon Network show Adventure Time, and has appeared in the 2012 and 2013 editions of Best American Comics.
