    One thought on “Amazing Forest”

    1. I started out reading the Netgallery IDW trade, but it was a nightmare, so I ended up buying the individual MonkeyBrain issues off Comixology. As far as I can tell there's no difference between the two versions.This is a hard comic to rate. It's made up of 24 short stories, and considering it's only 6 issues, you can imagine how short those stories are. Some of them had interesting premises, but the all ended abruptly. And they were all weird as fuck. In fact, towards the end they got predictabl [...]

    2. Some of the stories were great and spooky; some of them were not as great or as spooky. It was a quick, fun read, though.

    3. 'Amazing Forest' by Erick Freitas and Ulises Farinas (with a whole bunch of artists) is a dark collection of 24 short stories. The title doesn't give you any idea of the sort of thing you are about to read.A group in a tank has to spend every day killing alien visions of the people they love. A space villain tries to find ways to get hired. A trio of con artists travel town to town tying a woman up to the train tracks, then rescuing her for money. A virus that makes people exude cats. A boy that [...]

    4. An eclectic anthology of 'weird' stories, often in the horror or science fiction or dystopian genres, and with a vast array of art styles representing a lot of what you see out in indie or professional comic. Unfortunately, most of the stories don't have enough space or time to flesh out what premises and worlds they create, and even though some might hint at intriguing ideas, they suffer from endings that feel less poignant than they set out to be, and the dialogue is fairly inconsistent in qua [...]

    5. An interesting compilation of short stories. I loved almost all of the art, but some of the short stories left me feeling weirded out or left wanting. I enjoyed some of the weirder stories as long as the story had good storytelling and a good punch at the end.

    6. Various art styles are the only thing that made me read this one from start to end. And even in this aspect, some part of art was pretty nice, while other part was quite ugly. As for the stories, I think they supposed to go with a plot twist, but twists were not mind-twisting at all (basically, the whole books may be viewed as a parody of 'good guy turned out to be bad guy' trope) and the ideas for these short stories were quite bizarre. I don't know anyone who would find ideas for these stories [...]

    7. What the (view spoiler)[fuck (hide spoiler)] did I just read? Amazing Forest is the weirdest thing I've read in years and it was wonderful. I'm going to try and review this unique anthology to the best of my abilities.Amazing Forest is interesting, weird, bizarre, hilarious, violent, but most importantly it's original. I don't often read something, especially a graphic novel, and think to myself: this is something truly creative and unique. Amazing Forest is an anthology of short stories written [...]

    8. Tons of weird short stories. Some better than others. Only slightly disturbing. Worth reading if you like different. Definitely worth it if you like odd. All the stories have pretty non-traditional art and lettering. I think the idea behind the dragon hunter story was creative - but the art was confusing and the story could have been fleshed out. And I don't know why, but I found the Katzenjammer Cats story interesting. Space Night Sonata made me laugh. I think the stories got weirder as they we [...]

    9. Amazing Forest is a collection of short comics that allow you to read/view a variety of artists. This is the type of collection that rating will vary widely as some short stories were fine, some were funny, and many were blah. What your rating will be will depend on how many tales you like. Just be careful in looking at the trees that you do not get lost in this less than amazing forest.

    10. Thanks to Publisher who gave me free digital copy via NetGalley!Amazing Forest is a compilation of short stories from different artist. Each stories have their own amazing weirdness. My personal favourite was The Bird Watcher art by Yumi Sakugawa. The message behind that story was simple yet hit so close to home. And the art work wasn't less amazing than the story itself.

    11. I received this from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.A completely unique collection - highly recommended. Each story is illustrated by a different artist, and the results are amazing. The stories are bizarre and strange and sometimes a bit gruesome, which may bother some folks. It's hard to describe, other than to say that I would definitely recommend it.

    12. Nice to see a compilation comic, but the very short pieces here don't always work satisfactorily, and the artwork is very mediocre, to say the least. In the end the only thing that sticks in the mind is the very varied approach to genre writing, and none of the individual tales.

    13. This was a book of weird tales. The art was good. Some stories were amazing, some were meh, but most were good. Highly recommended for people who want non-traditional stories.Note - I received a free copy of the book from the publisher. This has not influenced my review in any way.

    14. Some stories were better than others, but a lot of this I didn't enjoy, story or artwork. I received an advanced copy of this from NetGalley and the publisher.

    15. A good anthology of weird, strange, SciFi stories with questionable art.Received an advance copy from IDW and NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
