Is it wrong that I enjoyed this so much? July 8 2012
By mikedx1 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Imagine the plot structure of Pulp Fiction buying a vulgar, sharper Nick And Norah's Infinite Playlist a blue-colored cocktail, and you're close to understanding and appreciating 'Forgetless.'

Didn't see Nick and Norah? You must have missed that part of the free Starz weekend bonanza. Don't judge me.

Moving on.

Nick Spencer writes modern teenagers really well. At the least, he understands and exploits an adult's perception of one that was raised on mySpace and "matured" through Twitter and Facebook. Spencer manages to convince you that models-turned-hitmen taking orders from a character drawn like Barack Obama is totally believable. This is partially because his thought bubbles are Tweets and Status Updates, which strangely ties them to our everyday reality.

The other ties to online culture in 'Forgetless' are exaggerated, yet believable. You know that part of the Internet you assume exists, but never want to find? 'Forgetless' makes the reader confront those topics head-on. In a nutshell, then, 'Forgetless' portrays a wide-variety of characters that come together through absurd means. Then again, they're just crazy enough that you believe they exist. This book straddles the line of realistic and absurd perfectly.

The other major component to critique is the art. The different branches of the story are handled by dramatically contrasting styles. At first this threw me off, but once you realize that there's a distinct reason for this shift, you wonder why more graphic novels don't follow suit.

This is my first review on Amazon, after being a long-time customer. Hopefully that tells you all you need to know about this excellent piece of work.

New View In the Comic World June 29 2011
By Mr.Holland - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This graphic Novel is fantastic. Nick Spencer who is known for his new story Morning Glories, (which should also be checked out) writes a story that is hip, new, and exciting. Forgetless takes new step into what a comic book can be about. While I dont want to give any details and have you check it out for yourselves, it is a tradeback that comes from a talented up and coming writer with some amazing artwork to boot. Just check it out already!
