    1. 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.

    2. Of Chocolate Bunnies and Cheese GratersA good little scientist must categorize, organize and systematize, of course, and so I have created a set of GR shelves that allow me to categorize, organize and systematize all the comic books I read these days. Call me crazy, but I find that kind of stuff strangely enjoyable. It makes me aware of the genres I have been indulging in, for example - good to know, right?Anyway, so far so good. Problem is, this book stubbornly denies me that kind of pleasure: [...]

    3. I found this collection to be almost inexplicably delightful. Then my husband liked it. He really liked it.My oldest son pronounced it "pretty cool."Then we all had a "deep" discussion about what the guys crawling in and out of holes were supposed to represent, and everyone agreed that my theory - "They are living in a giant cheese grater" - was a very good one.Behold a world where even a gutted seal can be a work of art. Strange monsters chide the reader for hating Star Trek (even TNG.) Giant y [...]

    4. Essentially Modest Mouse's The Moon and Antarctica in comic-book form, but not nearly as good. If that makes any sense. Maybe it's just that both are blue.

    5. This is the first book by Jacobs, whose Safari Honeymoon and By This You Shall Know Him, I really liked. This one is simpler, but only because I followed the advice of Dov he found in this useful review by Hayley Campbell: tcj/reviews/even-the-g to read Even the Giants as one narrative, and to read separately excerpts from his collection "One Million Mouths" that are interspersed throughout.Giants is silent, involves two giants (or maybe they are Yeti?), who eat their way across the Arctic. Aust [...]

    6. After finishing "Even the Giants" I read Hayley Campell's review in tcj tcj/reviews/even-the-g. She talks about Jacobs' background in graphic arts and the influence on his aesthetic, which is interesting stuff. She recommends reading the book without the distraction of "One Million Mouths." I took up her recommendation and reread it, just focusing on the arctic narrative, and enjoyed it a lot more. It's basically a book with a narrative about giants and eskimos and some other creatures in the ar [...]

    7. This brilliant debut is a series of interconnecting arctic stories featuring an eskimo, an ice-locked cargo ship, and a pair of gigantic, god-like monkey/yeti creatures, interspersed with wickedly funny stories of everyday modern-life: landlords, bad roommates, and more. Then there's the recurring pair of dudes wandering through a menacing, psychedelic otherworld, all with the underlying theme of nature's brutality and our search for warmth within it. The artwork is mesmerizing, and the writing [...]

    8. This collection of perplexing and mysterious little stories is EXACTLY what I look for in indie comics. It's like a glimpse into a strange little world all its own, all in white, teal, and shades of icy mint blue. It collects a series of mostly unrelated one-page comic strips called "One Million Mouths," interspersed with a longer landscape of connected stories taking place in the frozen North, with Eskimo, sled dogs, giant wendigo/snow monster creatures, a ship with little bristly men, and a st [...]

    9. I love to visit GOMA (Gallery of Modern Art) in Brisbane. They have some amazing stuff. But there's always sections of the museum that are just a bit too weird for me -- things that, I don't know -- are supposed to be symbolic or some shit like that. This book would fit in perfectly in one of those sections. It was fucking weird .But you'll notice I gave it 2 stars. One page did make me chuckle. The art was weird, but a good weird. And I like the title. (PS: I wasn't surprised at all to learn th [...]

    10. I love that this is in arctic blue/black&white, not just grayscale. It adds to the feel. It's a weird book, but the main story is enthralling. I found myself oddly sympathetic toward, well even the giants.

    11. Though largely wordless, the loosely interconnected stories in this collection fuse together to create an amazingly robust narrative. The sum total is grotesque, intricate and mazelike. Probably my favorite "graphic novel" I've come across so far.

    12. I’ve tried in the last year to read everything that Jesse Jacobs has traditionally published, and this book was definitely one of the odder ones (and that says a lot). It was a very fast read, and has a webcomicy quality to it (not a knock against it). It lacked the gravity that some of his other work did, though, so while I recommend reading it, I wouldn’t pick this one up first.

    13. A little like Hilda and the Trolls if the trolls ate Hilda and Twig. A little like a less sophisticated Crawl Space minus the washing machines.

    14. "Even the Giants" is not only what you expect from Jesse Jacobs, but what you want: weirdness, strangeness, gods and monsters acting with the privilege and entitlement of human beings (showing us how tragic, funny, terrible we can be).Two things bother me about Jesse Jacobs' "Even the Giants." One, it's out of print. And two, it was printed so small. I am of the opinion that Jacobs' work is always better when it's bigger. Find this book and buy it!

    15. So bizarre and awesome. Was surprised to find a happy and funny ending after so many creatures simply being eaten by giants. It was impressive how the separate stories completely came together at the end without written words! At many points I was delighted by how I felt like I had read so much but there are actually such few written words among the drawings. And the words that are there are poetic, bizarre, dark treats. Also it oddly made me want to be a vegetarian even more (though I'm still n [...]

    16. Jesse Jacobs' two more recent books - By This You Shall Know Him and (especially) Safari Honeymoon - are brilliant. While pleasant to read, with some very cool art, this one is definitely more a glimpse of a young artist grasping at a bunch of disparate ideas and styles as he seeks out his path - definitely more recommended for folks who already like his work and want to see how it developed. Otherwise, go check out his other books first!

    17. Yeeah, this just wasn’t for me. Too weird, not a strong enough visual story for me to be motivated to follow it or to unpack it. A few of the drawings were beautiful, but mostly this edged to much towards disturbing for me to enjoy it. The colours were beautiful though, using only white, icy blue and a darker blue.

    18. A funny little book featuring giants, eskimos, holey planets and other manner of weird creatures & scenes in a set stories that defy convention.

    19. This just wowed me. Simple colors highlight the beautiful illustrations and I really thought there must be a deeper meaning.
