Sometimes the best comics are also the most simplistic. In I Killed Adolf Hitler, Norwegian cartoonist Jason brings sci-fi and time travel to his minimalist world in one of the past decade's best indie books. It's about a hitman from the future going back in time to kill Hitler before he could ever unleash his wave of hate and violence upon the world.
Of course none of this goes according to plan, and a mishap allows Hitler to escape into our modern world. That larger plot is coupled with a poignant little love story between the hitman and his girlfriend that adds some heart and quirky humor.
Even though the dialogue and art are fairly simple, I Killed Adolf Hitler is a quirky, fresh read.
