Noah Van Sciver’s The Lizard Laughed is now available via Comixology. If you haven’t read this yet, it is imperative that you do so. It is one of Noah’s most personal and poetic works.
Sciver’s The Hypo: The Melancholic Young Lincoln is one of my favortie GNs and I’m so excited to read his new work out on Oily Press!
TEOTFW is our pick for tonight’s Late Night Read!
TEotFW follows James and Alyssa, two teenagers living a seemingly typical teen experience as they face the fear of coming adulthood. Forsman tells their story through each character’s perspective, jumping between points of view with each chapter. But quickly, this somewhat familiar teenage experience takes a more nihilistic turn as James’s character exhibits a rapidly forming sociopathy that threatens both of their futures. He harbors violent fantasies and begins to act on them, while Alyssa remains as willfully ignorant for as long as she can, blinded by young love. Forsman’s story highlights the disdain, fear and existential search that many teenagers fear, but through a road trip drama that owes as much to Badlands as The Catcher in the Rye.
