A Year of Cool Comic Book Moments – Day 11

Here is the latest cool comic book moment in our year-long look at one cool comic book moment a day (in no particular order whatsoever)! Here‘s the archive of the moments posted so far!

Today we look at a recent cool moment from Alex Robinson’s nifty new graphic novel, Too Cool to be Forgotten.


Too Cool to be Forgotten is a neat time travel story about a guy who gets hypnotized and appears to time travel back to his fifteen year old body in the 1980s.

The cool comic book moment comes early in the book when the man (Andy Wicks) is being hypnotized (to help quit smoking) and we see Andy attempt to clear his mind, and in the process, begin to time travel.

Robinson’s method of achieving this effect is by having Andy’s thoughts basically create himself…

It’s an awesome moment in a very cool book.

It’s followed by another moment that’s also cool, as we see Andy then turn into a re-creation of his memories – but I think this page is the coolest moment in the book.


That’s severely awesome and one that works really well even out of context.

Gonna have to check this out. Thanks!

Here’s my review. I wound up looking to decipher the page as well. That is one heckuva visual from Robinson.

Alex Robinson always delivers a great read full of warmth, humor and characterization. Well, apart from that dungeon thing…

Unfortuneately, that page halted the book for me.

I bought the book the day it came out, started reading it as soon as I got home, and that page stopped cold. I fell asleep trying to decipher it.

I did read the whole thing eventually, but it was 2-3 months later. I generally like Robinson’s work, too.

It’s like House of Leaves in comic form.
