The End of the Fucking World by Charles Forsman

Into the Wild

The End of the Fucking World Read Online Free - 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. Forsman's inviting, Charles Schulz-influenced style lends a deadpan quality that underscores the narrative's tension. The End of the Fucking World is certain to be one of the most talked-about graphic novels of 2013. Forsman is arguably the most acclaimed talent to come out of the Center for Cartoon Studies, a school founded in 2004 by graphic novelist James Sturm and educator Michelle Ollie in White River Junction, VT. Forsman graduated in 2008 and is a two-time Ignatz Award-winner for his self-published minicomic, Snake Oil. The End of the Fucking World is his first graphic novel.

Y'all younguns probably knew the acronym TEOTFW was the End of the Fucking World. Cute. Like the YA novel TTYL. I had this on my TBR list for a long time, had tried and failed to get it through my library system and forgotten altogether what it was about. At first glance it looks a bit like the s...

English review at the bottom Todo cómic esta compuesto por dos aspectos: historia y dibujo, y en este caso ambos tienen mucho potencial que en realidad nunca llega a ser explotado. Vamos primero por la historia (y personajes). Dos adolescentes escapan de casa y terminan siendo víctimas de la Ley...

TEotFW reads like an updated, rougher version of Terrence Malick's 1974 masterpiece Badlands. While Malick's movie is narrated by a teenage girl who runs away with a charming but violent young greaser, Charles Forsman's comic book alternates the perspectives of its two young runaway protagonists....

Impressive gonzo violence comes in such a sweet lethal package! This gives a wicked jolt of invigorating life energy to squiggles and shapes and letters on white paper. A true pictorial achievement...!!

Have you seen the Netflix show The End of the F***ing World? If not, then you should definitely check it out. I loved that show. It was based on this graphic novel about two murderous cinnamon rolls, James and Alyssa and their seemingly innocent and simple teenage life. It quickly turned somewhat...

The dark side of the life Sono in libreria, giro tra gli scaffali. Mi colpisce questo libretto di piccolo formato, dalla copertina nera rigida dal titolo "particolare". Non capisco bene di cosa tratti, quindi apro la prima pagina e inizio a leggere. E bang, ciò che leggo è esattamente l'opposto di...

My head is still spinning in circles. These teenagers, these youngsters are miles away from me, from my life. I had a happy adolescence-if such a thing exists-I thought I had problems but the truth is I inhabited a bubble, maybe I still do. The great thing of art la That it forces you out of T ha...

First of all - amazing title! Second of all - AMAZING BOOK! The End of the Fucking World (or TEOTFW) is about two teenagers, James and Alyssa, who decide to run away from home together. Their journey starts out somewhat romantic then becomes increasingly more desperate and tragic until they becom...

The Netflix series of this took me by surprise and left me in the deepest of feels and absolutely shook. It was that good. I absolutely loved it and got excited when i realized it was based on this graphic novel. Netflix really did a great job of bringing the vision of this book to life and forea...

I love books and movies of the dark comedy variety. I also have a soft corner for (well-written) teenage/high school stories. Also, the show based on this book is fucking brilliant. For these reasons, I decided to read this book, which, by the way, is incredibly hard to find. The book, however, i...
