Hot on the heels of the smash success of Charles Forsman's debut graphic novel TEOTFW comes Celebrated Summer, completed earlier but coming out a few months later (due in December) in a slim but sturdy softcover. Here's your first peek at the finished product!
Mike and Wolf, straight out of high school, drop acid and hit the road, hang out at the boardwalk, and have a few weird experiences as we get to know Wolf's inner life. This story has inspired praise from a couple of guys you might have heard of:
"Isolated and longing to connect, Chuck Forsman's Wolf reminds me of other great characters like Charlie Brown and Holden Caulfield. Celebrated Summer is a primal scream drawn in a casual, hypnotic monotone. Few comics are this soulful. Few cartoonists can make work this assured." – James Sturm
"I love the spare elegance of Chuck’s storytelling style. I also love, in this book in particular, his relaxed approach to examining the lives of his characters." – Chester Brown
