Eisner-nominee Van Sciver returns with a collection of hilarious and poignant short comics stories


From 2017 to 2019, cartoonist Noah Van Sciver was creating short stories and illustrations for local magazines and alt-weeklies, in order to serve as what he calls a personal "survival mechanism." All of these comics are collected for the first time in Please Don’t Step On My JNCO Jeans. When do you know you're too old to trick-or-treat? What's the best way to effectively dispose of those teenage ode-filled journals? Where do cherished cereal box prizes go when you grow up? JNCO Jeans--mostly told through one-pagers--holds observations, reflections, and breakthroughs from one of the most prolific and inspirational cartoonists of his generation.


"Van Sciver has established himself as a thoughtful cartoonist with a talent for exploring the complexities of the human condition with a pointed sense of humor. " — The AV Club


"Van Sciver just continues to get better and better." — The Quietus


"[A] lighthearted grab bag that should appeal to Van Sciver's devoted fans. " — Publishers Weekly


"An absolutely pleasant little book of goofs." — The Stranger
