CF (Christopher) Forgues


From the ruins of a destroyed library, an abandoned junkyard becomes a city of elemental beings, sentient machines, and fateful transformations. In Gymnasium, acclaimed artist CF deepens and complicates the evocative worlds and mysterious characters first depicted in his books Pierrot Alterations and William Softkey and the Purple Spider, building his previous achievements in comics storytelling into a grand summation of experimental narrative. A hybrid work containing alternating episodes of quiet lyricism and ruptures of vivid coloration, Gymnasium brings CF’s formally innovative and richly symbolic trilogy to a close.
