BLUE JAY SLAYER
Artwork By Ken Henson
$15.99 + S&H
BLUE JAY SLAYER whispers and shouts at us but never tells us what to think. It is dark at times, yes, but not what you'd expect: playful sometimes, angry sometimes, reticent when necessary. It's brimming with curses and gifts. When Matt Hart declares "The grass doesn't grow where I take you" you know—just know—that he isn't lying. He tells us Ken Henson is not who he appears to be, “which is correct". Henson certainly gives us glimpses of who he may be with his illustrations of the flaming reality of the dark side but without the hellish clichés. Well, maybe there are a few, but those, of course, are intentional. Hart digs up the dead with his words and points to what we think is real, while making us question what we initially thought. BJS will take you like you could get permanently lost in that world and never come back, but you do. You come back feeling exuberant; you come back feeling absolved.
