Forming II
The hotly-anticipated sequel that encompasses all; mythology, theology, super-alien gods, hermaphrodites and the simple task of creating the cosmos.
If Forming hailed the birth of civilization and mapped out the genesis of life, mass, time, and space, then Forming II is the raging war that ensues in the Universe's years of adolescence.
Epic confrontations between gods and mutants, philosophical reflections, hilarious dialogue, and powerful artwork make for an impressive sequel of galactic proportions. Forming II is as funny, sophisticated, and mind-blowingly beautiful as the first part of Jesse Moynihan's unique trilogy.
