The End Of The Fucking World (Hardcover)
This being one of my favorite Netflix series, I came in with a lot of expectations. Forsman met and exceeded those expectations by miles. The End Of The Fxxxing World is a grim love story. James, the main character, is a complete psychopath, but his chase for feeling shapes him in a fascinating way. This graphic novel can be very intense and nihilistic, but I find the exaggerated characters really highlight what this book is all about. I highly recommend this book to anyone who enjoys psychological horror. -Jonah— From Aesthetical August Staff Picks
A darkly comedic graphic novel about two teens on a twisted road trip, recently adapted into a hit Netflix series.
The graphic novel that inspired the hit Netflix series! Season two premieres in November 2019!
Charles Forsman’s hit graphic novel 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.
