The Forever Maps is a tremendous standalone graphic novel from writer Michael Lagace and artist Todor Hristov. In 1794 a young man named John comes into possession of a mysterious map, which leads him to another map, and another, and another, and another…but no matter where the maps lead him or how long it takes he doesn’t age as long as he’s following the path the maps set for him. Throughout his journey John must forever choose between family, friends and having a life to live, or his own immortality.
From start to finish The Forever Maps feels like a classic gothic horror tale, expertly written by Lagace and brought to life by Hristov’s gorgeous monochromatic artwork. This was a book I picked up with no prior knowledge of and I honestly think it’s one of my best impulse buys in recent memory.
