The End Of The Fucking World Hardcover – August 22, 2017
"Enlightenment Now: The Case for Reason, Science, Humanism, and Progress"
Is the world really falling apart? Is the ideal of progress obsolete?

From Publishers Weekly
"When I was thirteen and a half, I found a cat in the woods. I smashed its body with a stone." Like a teenage metal head's revenge fantasy world spun out of control, but drawn by a demented Mort Walker, this debut graphic novel is a haunting odyssey. James is an unfeeling and disturbed youth who tortures animals, sticks his hand down a garbage disposal, punches his father in the face, and lacks compassion or feeling for anyone else. At 16, he pretends to fall in love with his classmate Alyssa and convinces her to split town with him after he steals his dad's car. They break into a house in the suburbs and start playing a clumsy version of house, unable to escape the awkwardness of their age. They also make a disturbing discovery about the homeowner. When he returns, the pair's fake home life comes crashing down. This is a visceral comic, full of deeply unsettling violent images and actions, though Forsman's minimalist style helps keep the focus on the impact of the events, not the horror itself. This is not a redemption story, and there are no good people in it. Forsman has crafted a comic that captures youth, frustration, and that deep, dark feeling that maybe things won't get better when you get older. (Aug.) --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Book lasts maybe 15 minutes at the longest but it has a strong plot and good characters.
Read it due to the Netflix/Channel 4 show, and they kept it quite the same, except for some bits that I'm sure they'll work on later.
I'll be perfectly honest - before reading 'TEOTFW', I had not heard of creator Charles Forsman. That being said, I'm greatly impressed with his work and will continue to follow his output in the future. Forsman crafted this story with integrity. He has earned my utmost respect for doing so.
