Jay Stephens Launches Dejects
Join Jay for the launch of DEJECTS, featuring work from 1991–present day, collected here for the first time since their original appearances in print, and some for the very first time anywhere!
JAY STEPHENS is a Canadian cartoonist currently living in Guelph, Ontario. He is best known as the creator of Discovery Kids’s animated television series Tutenstein , Cartoon Network’s The Secret Saturdays, and the JetCat animated shorts for Nickelodeon’s anthology series, KaBlam!’. Aside from his work in animation, Jay is known for several comic book projects, including SIN, The Land of Nod, Atomic City Tales, and Jetcat Clubhouse.
Best known for his animated television series Jetcat, Tutenstein, and The Secret Saturdays, Jay Stephens has spent the last quarter-century telling stories-with-pictures in his own comic books (SIN, The Land of Nod, Atomic City Tales, Jetcat Clubhouse), alternative weekly strips (Oddville!), monthly kids magazines (Chick & Dee, Arrowhead), daily newspaper comics (Oh, Brother!), and picture books (Monsters!, Heroes!, Robots!, Freaky Fun Activities).
Over the years, many of those comics have been collected in several volumes: The Land of Nod Treasury, The Land of Nod Rockabye Book, Go Power!, Oddville, Jetcat Clubhouse… but what of those characters and pages and strips that didn’t fit in any collection? What became of the Dejects?
Lovingly coloured for this collection, Dejects is the resource for those odds and ends, and bits and bobs, from 1991–2019. That’s 136 pages, spanning 28 years worth of Jay’s unique and diverse comics, available here for the first time since their original appearances in print, and some for the very first time anywhere!
