A young woman quits her job to write. She ends up wasting most of her days, and spending her nights in the same bars with the same small group of friends staring at the same bunch of scenesters. Such is the stuff of this articulate comic. But the thing is, Jon knows how to tell a story. And he knows how to draw. And he knows malaise, oh yes, does he ever know how to give us that unique swirl of ennui, apathy and depression that equals malaise. But there’s a sweetness about the world that Jon’s character recognizes; his stories – swirls of narrative, insight and self-consciousness ~ always end with a promise that his character seems to be making to herself.
