This original graphic novella is a funny and moving story of escalating humor and tension between two disaffected teens, Mike and Wolf, who take a spontaneous summer road trip after dropping acid. As the stark black and white of Forsman’s cartooning indicates, however, this is not a psychedelic, Kandy-Kolored Tangerine-Flake Streamline Baby kind of trip. Instead of the escapism they crave from their fragile home lives, the LSD only heightens their sense of ennui, exacerbates their fears about the world they’re about to enter as adults, and creates doubts about everything they think they know.
Though it’s not entirely what they bargained for, will Mike and Wolf look back on their adventure as part of the “celebrated summer” of their never-to-be-recaptured youth, or a carelessly wasted part of the best years of their lives? Or both?
Out today, and craaaazy excellent. Good job, Charles Forsman,
Extremely happy to announce our fourth issue for 2014… Frontier #6: Emily Carroll!
Emily Carroll is a talented cartoonist — one of my all time favorites! We adore her unnerving and masterful webcomics, like “His Face All Red,” “The 3 Snake Leaves,” and “Out of Skin.”
For Frontier #6, Emily is creating a brand new horror story, inspired by children’s games like Bloody Mary, Southern Ontario Gothic literature, and Japanese urban legends.
