Review: Why Are You Doing This?

User Review  - Aditya Vipradas - Goodreads

I like the way Jason introduces an abstract concept in the beginning, keeps on reinforcing it throughout the story and then reveals its purpose at the very end. He literally gives you goosebumps. Read full review

I just don't understand how so much can be put into so few words and such simple drawings. Another terrific story that leaves me wanting more and feeling lost, alone and yet alive. Read full review
