Time travel has always been a curiosity to mankind. There are stories about it dating back to the 1600’s. “Forever Forward” is the latest title to broach the subject. 

I understand Dr. Moody’s hesitation to publish. As soon as he publishes someone can take his research and expand upon it. He’s afraid that expansion will turn him into a footnote in history. This is his project . He wants to complete the research and receive all of the accolades. We can see how he’s devoted his life to making this happen, as well as what it cost him.

I loved seeing Kaplan’s vision of 2055. In about 30 years we’ll see how close to being right he was. I’m curious to see how everyone learns how to manipulate time to continue going forward, and eventually back.

When I saw this book on the shelves at my local comic book store the cover caught my eye. The rubble and the fire left me expecting a post-apocalyptic story. It was intriguing enough to make me want to add it to the stacks for the week.

I was impressed with the artwork on the interior pages. Susini has an artistic style that makes the characters feel very natural and relatable. I’m especially fond of the work with all of the different facial expressions.

If you like time travel stories “Forever Forward” will be right in your wheelhouse. It has great character development, good artwork, and (of course) time travel. As a geek on a budget I believe that this book is well worth the price of admission.

I grew up loving all things geek. I started reading and collecting comics when I was 8. My personal collection has roughly 8,000 books in it. When I’m not doing something geek-related I love spending time with my amazing wife and kids, gaming, and working on cross stitch projects.
