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.
