Tales for the bold. Ideas for the strange. Ulises Fariñas, Erick Freitas, and a cavalcade of new talents bring to life amazing fantastical tales: Wish goblins! Rampaging robots! A melting snowman! And a villain that conquers the world!
What sets AMAZING FOREST apart from other comics is that it is paving its own distinct path. Instead of falling into many of the industry's usual tropes, this book repossesses and explodes them to create a delightfully strange structural mosaicwhere nothing about these stories seems like they should fit together, yet all dowhen put side-by-side. The true strength of of AMAZING FOREST is that it doesn't feel like it's trying to be anything more than what it is, and that's something that ought to be celebrated. Its diverse range of artistic and storytelling styles displays the true might of the Freitas-Farinas creative team, giving a newlease on life to the comic medium when it often feels tired and trodden. If you skip a book this week, don't let it be this one. Read Full Review
Yet another great collection of shorts that prove Farias and Freitas are at the top of their game. Most if not all of these stories read as if they need a short film to go with them; they're that clever and good. Read Full Review
