Jason Turner of Vancouver is a comic book artist whose first graphic novel, Fir Valley (Cloudscape Comics 2017 $25), is seemingly set in North Vancouver. The town of Fir Valley, on the side of a mountain, is shaken when a man is killed and his son disappears. While the community reacts to these events, the mystery is investigated and dark secrets from the town's past come to light. And here is something lurking in the woods... Turner has self-published comics since the late 1980s, and has been putting his comics on the internet since the late 1990s. He co-wrote the True Loves trilogy with his wife Manien Bothma. More recent work includes Farm School, The Adulation and Bird Comics. His comics column in comic form, Jason and the Comics, ran in Broken Pencil for five years. 978-1-927742-10-5
