A graphic novel about innocent, adorable purple creatures who inherit the earth By Michelle Gish At some point in the near future, the human race vanishes from the face of the planet. And in their place cute, child-like, purple quadrupeds emerge to explore the abandoned landscape. Gleeful and astonished, they spread across the globe, eating flowers, being startled by birds, and strapping knives to their heads to establish a fashion trend. Where did they come from, and where did the humans go? Can these simple creatures establish a society, avoid the pitfalls and mistakes of humanity, and make the world their own? Like Cloud Atlas meets Adventure Time, or Pusheen meets Planet of the Apes, We Are Here Forever is a post-apocalyptic tale of mystery, history, strangeness, and cuteness...and it’s very funny. After the apocalypse, it's survival of the cutest! The human race has vanished from the earth, replaced by innocent, playful creatures called the Puramus. In this hilarious and epic graphic novel, short interlocking stories follow the purple pals as they explore their new home, form a mini-monarchy, and develop a modern society on par with 21st-century humans. A final act pulls us across time and space in the search for clues to the origins of the Puramus. Along the way, humor and intrigue abound: Can King defend his village when nobody understands what war is? Will Jingle work up the nerve to read her poetry at open mic night? Will Puff Puff ever stop floating? Based on the Tumblr comic, We Are Here Forever is for fans of post-apocalyptic sci fi blended with dry humor and undeniable adorableness. Colorful and cartoony art will have you rooting for these cute critters through their absurd adventures, but are they really as harmless as they seem?
