Here we have 120 pages of comics that stand a good chance of intriguing quite a few more readers than they currently are (at least around here). Readers of comics by the Kramers crowd – specifically, C.F., B.J., and Sammy H. – as well as Chester Brown fans mourning the lack of new work, and members of the Theo Ellsworth Army, all stand to be pleasantly surprised by Mr. Moynihan's work in Follow Me, which is, technically, the third part of The Backwards Folding Mirror (we're out of the first two parts at the moment, but we'll see what we can do about getting them back in stock; that said, this one will stand on its own). Check it out and see what you think, here.

The first of a projected three volumes collecting Mr. Moynihan's ongoing webcomic detailing "the spawning of worlds, and the trajectory of consciousness on Earth." This oversize, full color, hardcover volume is published under the auspices of NoBrow, and is another feather in their cap of excellence in craft (printed in Belgium!). Jesse Moynihan has been producing adventurous self-published comics for quite awhile, as those intrepid Copacetic customers who managed to score Backwards Folding Mirror and/or Follow Me already know. Forming is by far his most ambitious project yet, and we feel confident in recommending it to fans of C.F's Powr Mastrs, Frank Santoro and Ben Jones's Cold Heat, the works of Yuichi Yokoyama and all those waiting around for the next Kramers Ergot. Yes, that's quite a broad recommendation, we know; but! – you don't have to take our word for it as you can read the entire saga online, starting here. Until you come down and see it for yourself, you will, however, have to take our word that this sumptuously produced book provides an aesthetic experience all its own.
