At 16, I pretended to fall in love with Alyssa.

Meet James and Alyssa, two typical-seeming teenagers facing the fears of coming adulthood. As their story unfolds, the chapters alternating between each character’s perspective, this somewhat familiar teenage experience takes a more nihilistic turn. With James becoming rapidly more sociopathic, and Alyssa willfully ignoring his violent fantasies, they are forced to take a road trip that owes as much to Badlands as The Catcher in the Rye — and threatens both their futures forever.

One of the most talked about graphic novels of recent years, The End of The Fucking World marks Charles Forsman’s UK debut.
