Die Schülerinnen Daisy und Jeanne-Claude haben ein Geheimnis, das es ihnen ermöglicht, ihrem Vorstadtleben zu entkommen: In den dunklen Winkeln des Kellers von Daisys Haus, hinter der Waschmaschine und einem Schleier, der die Wirklichkeiten trennt...
"Jacobs marries the majesty of nature with otherworldly magic" -- Jonathan Rotzstain, Visual Arts News "Worms, infections, and tongue-replacing parasites abound in this graphic novel--and, once you've read it, in your subconscious as well." -- Tobias Carroll, Paste "Jesse Jacobs creates beautiful art and his comics have a fantasy dreamlike aspect that is at once charming and horrifying." -- Bryan Munn, Sequential "The back-to-the-land arch doesn't quite capture how sublimely strange Jacobs' world is, but it gets to the message all the same: it's the alienation from the land that makes the place horrible." -- David Berry, National Post "Every page of this book could be torn out and framed. Seriously." -- Nadxi Nieto, Electric Literature "...it's the art that elevates it into exceptional territory; appropriately lush, splendidly intricate sequences -- each page gorgeously psychedelic with much to pore over." -- Zainab Akhtar, Comics & Cola "Jacobs' book is not only a weird and whimsical visual treat, but an example of equally strong storytelling that holds its own, elevating it way above your typical 'art comic.'" -- Whit Taylor "Part jungle adventure, part "psychedelic sojourn", part biblical allegory, part gender study, part contemporary commentary, Safari Honeymoon is much more than the sum of its parts; it becomes its own thing by being unlike almost anything else." -- Daniel Elkin, Your Chicken Enemy "Like the characters, the reader is pulled deeper and deeper into the terrain as Jacobs reveals more of this land's hidden secrets. This makes for an especially enchanting read, even during the moments of grotesque horror." -- Oliver Sava, A.V. Club "A demented exploration of unfamiliar wilderness, Jacobs' absurdist horror story deftly comments on and sends up invasive species and Western explorers alike." -- Jeff VanderMeer, Electric Lit "Presenting nature as a pitiless arena for survival of the fittest isn't the most original of scenarios, but Jacobs' presentation is wonderfully fresh and drolly humorous -- a genuinely personal vision ... [he] is a cartoonist gifted with tremendous imagination and one-of-a-kind visual acumen." -- Rob Kirby, The Comics Journal "The work of an ingenious and fertile imagination this is a book where visual execution is unashamedly at the forefront of narrative drive in immersing the reader in a most intricately constructed realm of weirdness." -- Andy Oliver, Broken Frontier "Safari Honeymoon is Summer 2014's sleeper hit of acid." -- Greg Mannix, End of the Universe "When reading Jesse Jacobs' Safari Honeymoon the primary feeling is one of total immersion. It's not just a graphic novel about a newlywed couple taking their honeymoon in a strange, dangerous environment, it's a sensory experience that engulfs the reader in an intricately detailed biosystem of horrific parasites, alien foliage, and geometric spirits." -- Oliver Sava, A.V. Club "In a recent interview, Jacobs said that if he weren't a cartoonist he would probably have been a farmer. With Safari Honeymoon it seems that Jacobs has managed to be both at once, albeit a farmer in which the reader is the field to be planted." -- Jared Gardner, Ohio State University Professor of English and Film, Public Books "Prime strange amusement." -- Ray Olson, Booklist "In a recent interview, Jacobs said that if he weren't a cartoonist he would probably have been a farmer. With Safari Honeymoon it seems that Jacobs has managed to be both at once, albeit a farmer in which the reader is the field to be planted." -- Jared Gardner, Public Books "What at first seems like a familiar story trope -- an older, rich lout and nubile, young wife go on safari led by a macho, knowledgeable guide -- becomes under Jacobs' hands something altogether strange, haunting, unexpected and a
