    The defining word here is CUTE. This little purple aliens are adorable. So what if they've taken over Earth? You just want to hug them, every single page.

    I want to thank Quirk books for sending this graphic novel for an honest review. I have not heard of Michelle Gish, but she has a webcomic. I tried to look up more information, but all of the websites just go back to this particular graphic novel. I found the graphic novel pleasant. The alien like creatures are super cute. I love their dialogue and the illustrations are awesome. Giving the book 4 stars.

    I want to thank Quirk books for sending this graphic novel for an honest review. I have not heard of Michelle Gish, but she has a webcomic. I tried to look up more information, but all of the websites just go back to this particular graphic novel. I found the graphic novel pleasant. The alien like creatures are super cute. I love their dialogue and the illustrations are awesome. Giving the book 4 stars.

    This graphic novel is set in a post apocalyptic Earth. The humans are no more. These creatures run the world. There are three different groups of these purple creatures. Humans called them Puramus. The first group lives out in the fields outside of the city. They love collecting treasure and where the trash/junk on their bodies. They have names that coincide with the things the wear like: box, bowl and pot. I find them adorable. Then there are the creatures with unusual horns that live in the suburbs. Finally there are creatures that look to live underwater. They are covered in starfish and shells.

    There isn't a plot to the graphic novel. It's more of snippets into the daily life of theses creatures. The book also has a timeline that skips around. We start off in Year One: NEW. Then it jumps to year 147, year 628 and then an unknown year. Again it's more of life with the purple squishies.

    Regardless I found it all adorable. If you are looking for a cute graphic novel, look no further.

    Thank you to Quirk Books for sending me a copy of this book for review! We Are Here Forever is based on a webcomic which I have not read. It follows cute purple creatures living on a post-apocalyptic earth without humans and it is funny, nuanced, and at times quite incisive, but with a light touch. You can read these vignettes as good fun with silly antics, or as a tongue-in-cheek take on the worst of humanity. I really enjoyed it and would recommend if you like graphic novels!

You can read these vignettes as good fun with silly antics, or as a tongue-in-cheek take on the worst of humanity. I really enjoyed it and would recommend if you like graphic novels!

    I will say, the humor and irony are subtle so this may not work so well for everyone. For instance, there is a vignette about the purple creatures being freaked out by fuzzy gray TV screens and decide to destroy them by throwing rocks. It's silly because it's purple creatures destroying TV's, but it also parallels the approach certain groups of humans have taken in addressing the unfamiliar. I enjoy this sort of thing, but not everyone will! Also this isn't a linear story, rather you get episodes that come together to inform you about these creatures and their antics.

    i didn’t know anything about this evidently very popular webcomic before BEA, when i encountered these little purple cuddlemonsters on a poster and my WANT muscles were activated, leading my feet to the booth, where i got a signed arc and a pin:

    fans/those of you more savvy in the realm of “things that are popular in the world,” will be pleased to know that this is an “all-new, stand-alone collection.” dum-dums like me, who are turning up late to the party (WELCOME, DUM DUMS!), won’t even know th

    i didn’t know anything about this evidently very popular webcomic before BEA, when i encountered these little purple cuddlemonsters on a poster and my WANT muscles were activated, leading my feet to the booth, where i got a signed arc and a pin:

    fans/those of you more savvy in the realm of “things that are popular in the world,” will be pleased to know that this is an “all-new, stand-alone collection.” dum-dums like me, who are turning up late to the party (WELCOME, DUM DUMS!), won’t even know the difference!

    so, basic rundown: these comics take place on a post-human earth, which is now populated by little purple creatures called puramus. where did the people go? where did the other creatures go? no one knows! right?

    clues, you say? lemme at these clues!

    the book is segmented into four parts, representing four different points in time, with a little wink in the introduction:

    however, the four parts are clearly labeled: Year 1, Year 147, Year 628, and Year ???, so even a dum dum who didn’t know this webcomic was happening out on the computerwebs will understand that this final chapter is the one that is perhaps “not always forward in time,” and it just might provide all the answers to your whys and hows. well, maybe not ALL of them. us dum dums have many questions about many things we do not understand, and this book isn’t even making any promises to definitively answer the ones pertaining to itself:

    so, figure it out or don’t—these things are pretty cute either way!

    FYI: all of my pictures are from my b/w arc—the finished book is in glorious color.

    as the kids say: relatable content

    as the kids say: i feel seen

    as the kids say: same

    as the kids say: THIS IS SOMETHING THAT I HAVE ALSO ENCOUNTERED IN MY LIFE AND I CAN SYMPATHIZE/EMPATHIZE AS A RESULT OF HAVING HAD THIS EXPERIENCE

    lest you infer from my image-choices that this is a 100% depressing book, rather than just me letting my gloominess guide my planchette, observe:

    enough of that uplifting stuff, though; here is my favorite—and DEEPLY CHILLING—panel, depicting those wacky paramus reenacting the end of humanity:

    shudders, every time…

    did i love this book?

    i liked it, but i didn't love it. i probably would have enjoyed it more if i was less of a dum dum—if i'd had some previous familiarity with the creatures and their (our?) world. there's a difference between a "standalone" book and an "introduction" to a series, and while the stories were cute, they were kind of—AS THE KIDS SAY—random; i didn't feel any particular connection to the individual characters or the creatures in general, and there wasn't a unifying narrative thread connecting the isolated episodes.

    still, i am glad to have discovered these little buggers, and i will certainly be checking out both their future and past adventures right here:

    and this one:

    so cute! so purple! so just like us!

    check it out in full glorious color, because it is NOW AVAILABLE!!!!

    The main reason I decided to read this story was because of the cover, which is kinda cute and gives off feel-good wibes, and the blurb - mainly the part where it describes the story as "post-apocalyptic sci fi, dry humor, and utter adorability". Just seeing that had me sold. I really thought that this could be one of my new favourite books. But to be completely honest, apart from the cute and adorable illustrations and some of

    The main reason I decided to read this story was because of the cover, which is kinda cute and gives off feel-good wibes, and the blurb - mainly the part where it describes the story as "post-apocalyptic sci fi, dry humor, and utter adorability". Just seeing that had me sold. I really thought that this could be one of my new favourite books. But to be completely honest, apart from the cute and adorable illustrations and some of the characters personalities, there was nothing more to the story. No dry humor, not even normal humor, no real plot and in the end I just skimmed through the scenes. There were also some unanswered questions about what happened to the previous race aka. humans and animals. I don't know, this just wasn't my cup of tea. Maybe some will find the story more fun than me and give it a try...

    Have you ever wondered what it would be like if all humans were replaced with purple, confused cats? I hadn’t before We Are Here Forever, but I honestly love what they’ve done with the place.

    We Are Here Forever follows a growing community of Puramus, from the very first year humans have vanished from Earth, to many hundreds, if not thousands, of years later. At first they are a very excitable species, bouncing around from one undiscovered location to the next. They are curious and absolutely fascinated by a planet devoid of humans. While they are a sentient species, they are still positive, cheerful, and a little inspiring.

    As time passes, the Puramus have developed more complex emotions, drives, and needs. They are more than just a cute, bouncy species, and they start to see the world around them as more complex and are in need of discovery. This continues through the generations as the Puramus begin to act similarly to humans; they utilize more of the abandoned technology left behind, they move into their old homes.

    Over time, it becomes harder to avoid the questions right in front of their squishy little faces. Where have all the animals from the human-books gone? Is there anything else alive on Earth aside from the Puramus? Are they the reason that nothing else seems to exist?

    I wasn’t expecting to be so enamored with these random purple “cats,” but boy was this book adorable! This book covers some heavy emotions and perspectives without making you want to absolutely ball your eyes out, and I have to give it up for the Puramus for making that possible. I play a lot of post-apocalyptic video games and watch similar TV shows and movies, but none of them have covered the full extent of what happens after humanity ends quite like this one.

    Sometimes the Puramus are excited and loveable, and other times they are exhibiting very real emotions I can relate. They're and evolving, learning species that seems to constantly edge on human emotions at all times.

    The artwork in this graphic novel is very bright and eye-catching, to the point where I was able to sit down and enjoy the entire thing in one sitting because I didn’t want to take my eyes away. Additionally, there aren’t always a lot of conversations happening which means that a lot of emotion and meaning are expressed very well in the actions and expressions portrayed in the artwork. The Puramus are the sole creatures in a post-human world; they are bouncing off every surface, creating their own meanings for seemingly mundane items, and I felt like the brightness of this post-apocalyptic world really pulled me in.

    My Rating: ★★★

    Another web comic turn into book. I more often then not disappointed by those. There always put a little small on my face, but would I want a complete book of those, maybe there not funny enough, at least for me. This one lack «punch» and intensity in it. Not for me!

    This story was based on a webcomic...which I didn't quite know before I requested it. I thought that it would be fine. I mean, these are cute little blob things that are taking over the world? How much do I need to know before I start reading about them? Um, oddly enough, I think I needed to have known quite a bit more.

    The art was quite cute. I liked the color scheme and the drawing style. Gish draws with a fun, exciting style that just seems happy. It's very adorable, and she really made the purple blobish creatures work. The art was definitely the highlight of the book.

    As I mentioned in the first part of the book, I didn't fully get this? This seemed to be like extra little stories for those that enjoyed the webcomic. It was supposed to be a standalone novel that could be read as such or for fans of the story. However, I still don't quite understand the world, why they were there, and how they got to where they are. Perhaps by the end, it became a bit more clear, but from the summary, I thought that it would be hilarious misadventures of these adorable creatures that would shed a light/make fun of all the ways that human killed the world. Instead, there was like a whole story about a search for a skateboard or something? A hat?

    I also really did find much funny? Like it was light hearted, and there were a few panels that I thought were fantastic. However, I didn't really get the point or have any witty, hilarious moments that I expected were coming.

    Overall: adorable art, but you will definitely struggle if you don't have previous knowledge of the world/storyline. I definitely floundered with that and was not able to enjoy as a standalone graphic novel. But super cute art!!

    Apparently, one doesn't need to have read the webcomic to enjoy this graphic novel. I don't know about that. I thought this was one of the weakest graphic novels I've read recently. Most of the chapters are pretty inane, rather boring, and lacking in any real substance. Only the last one really had anything interesting going for it.

    The characters are... well, simple. I don't think they're particularly cute. They're basically just purple cushions with butt cheeks. (Butt cheeks can't carry a whole

    Apparently, one doesn't need to have read the webcomic to enjoy this graphic novel. I don't know about that. I thought this was one of the weakest graphic novels I've read recently. Most of the chapters are pretty inane, rather boring, and lacking in any real substance. Only the last one really had anything interesting going for it.

    The characters are... well, simple. I don't think they're particularly cute. They're basically just purple cushions with butt cheeks. (Butt cheeks can't carry a whole book, though, as I found out the hard way when I read Megan Dong's

    .) The evolution of the Puramus is probably the only interesting thing about them, and even then, it's not enough to make me want to spend any more time with these characters.

    Each chapter seems more flimsy and insubstantial than the last. I got the feeling as I was reading it that the author/illustrator simply enjoys drawing these little creatures. That's fine. And maybe it works better as a webcomic, but it really doesn't work as a graphic novel. Yes, there's an overarching storyline, but it's as thin as gossamer, and the rest of the book nearly breaks it with its mundane weight. One of these boring stories would've been enough; I didn't need to read twelve of them to get the gist.

    I think this one will probably only appeal to existing fans of the webcomic. Even so, I'm not sure I see the appeal. I guess this one's just not my thing.
