    DescriptionSince the dawn of history, we have sought to understand our existence through creationist fables of omnipotent deities and mythical creatures. Jesse Moynihan takes these fifty thousand years of socio-religious postulation and throws them in the blender to create one epic--and irreverent--battle royal between alien gods, ancient Greek titans, interplanetary assassin droids, and humanity itself. An eon-spanning comedy, "Forming" details the spawning of worlds and the trajectory of consciousness on Earth. The first in a trilogy of books, Nobrow collects the first volume of Moynihan's acclaimed webcomic in a specially designed graphic novel with a foil debossed cloth spine.

    Review quote
    "Moynihan walks a fine line between "weird" and "incomprehensible" and between "clever" and "dumb," and manages to stay on the right side of it through almost every one of these bizarre, demented panels. I can't say that I've ever read anything quite like this (though it did call to mind the weirder bits of The Incal). I'm glad I did." -Cory Doctorow, Boingboing.net "To understand Forming (assuming "understand" is the correct verb here), picture some lost Gnostic text translated by Jay (of Jay and Silent Bob) at his cussin-est, under commission by a delusional would-be cult-founder who cut his teeth on the work of Fletcher Hanks and who really liked drawings of weiners and boobies."-Cory Doctorow, Boingboing.net "Forming is published by London's NOBROW, whose books are fantastically well-made, beautifully cloth-bound and printed on high-quality, sustainably produced paper (they also publish the much-more-kid-friendly Hilda comics). It's a quality product."-Cory Doctorow, Boingboing.net "Forming is a success on so many different levels. First of all, it's simply a beautiful art object filled with page after page of brightly colored and bizarre images."-Rob Clough, The Comics Journal "At times funny, violent, thought-provoking, juvenile (in a good way), and genius [...] Moynihan has a firm and defined aesthetic that is singular and fantastic." - Nothing But Comics "the plot is genuinely complex and even byzantine at times, with multiple betrayals, long cons, and elaborate plans all right below the surface."-Rob Clough, The Comics Journal "Because it's well-executed, there's essentially a laugh on every single page. It's certainly the most hilarious cosmogony I've ever read."-Rob Clough, The Comics Journal "Forming, a super strange graphic novel published by the super strange English publishing house NOBROW and written by possible genius Jesse Moynihan."-Scott Beauchamp Full Stop blog "It's totally stupid, totally goony, and has opened me up to the possibility of becoming interested in graphic novels and comics again."-Scott Beauchamp Full Stop blog
