Internationally acclaimed cartoonist Jason's first full-length graphic memoir is about his experiences walking a 500-mile pilgrimage for his 50th birthday in Northwestern Spain, which he observes with the eye of an artist, chronicling both the good (people, conversations) and the bad (blisters, bedbugs) he encountered on his journey. Full of quiet incidents, odd encounters, small triumphs, and the occasional setback, ON THE CAMINO is the first implicitly autobiographical long-form work by this master cartoonist. Featuring black & white illustrations throughout.

Maybe a bit slower than his previous works, but this is a great book with fantastic art. If you're a fan of Jason's work, pick this up. If you're looking for a starting point, I'd recommend 'I KILLED ADOLF HITLER' or 'WHAT I DID' before reading this. All his stuff is worth checking out if you're a fan of the medium.

Good drawings, but kinda boring.

I like this in a different way than Jason's other works. I haven't given much thought to him as a cartoonist/artist when reading his other books. It's like watching a movie, and NOT thinking "Hey, Robert De Niro is playing an interesting character", or, "I sure love what Jennifer Lawrence is conveying". It is much more anonymous or distanced. In his latest work, we get some insight into Jason's personality. It is autobiographical without being overbearing. 4.5 out of 5 stars. I zipped right through it, and can hardly wait for his next book.
