Forming Vol. 2 - Jesse Moynihan
Forming creator, Jesse Moynihan, will be known to many for his work as a storyboarder on the TV show Adventure Time. This is the second book in the series and is a wacky mythological epic about the creation of the universe and the dawn of human civilization by the hands of godlike alien monsters.
In Forming Vol. 2 civilization has started to take shape. And now, in the continuing chaos, the world and most of its inhabitants have brandished their swords and, in various fashions, have charged onto the battlefield. If Forming I hailed the birth of civilization and mapped out the genesis of life, mass, time and space, then Forming II is the raging war that ensues in the Universe’s years of adolescence.
Final Incal - Jodorowski, Ladronn, Moebius
Pictures do not do this book justice, it’s a beautiful oversized production, concluding the story which legendary director and comic writer, Alejandro Jodorowski started with the equally masterful comics artist, Moebius in 1981.
