As far as the story goes, Mnemovore is a classic mixture of horror and mystery genres as the protagonist, Kaley Markowic, suffers a career- and nearly life-ending injury that leaves her an amnesiac. During her recovery and attempts to rebuild her shattered memory with the aid of her family, her boyfriend, and her friends, an unknown threat emerges in the guise of a snail or wormlike creature assaulting everyone close to Kaley. When the tentacled monster turns its attention to her, she begins to question her very reality and the intentions of those closest to her. When the Mnemovore spreads beyond her inner circle and begins expanding its influence to others, Kaley must sacrifice more than her already broken memories in an ending that is only complicated even more by the addition of Fawkes and Huddleston's new epilogue.Read more ›
But the author clearly didn't know what to do beyond that. Pretty much the entire book consists of Kaley roaming around town, finding friends and family to be a dick to for a while, only to later stumble onto a mnemovore trying to have a meal. This theme is repeated so often that you begin to feel like the mnemovore's should get an apology, a sort of "Oh, I'm sorry I've interrupted you five hundred times eating someones head without advancing the plot any."
Anyway, all this leads up to a pretty hard to swallow encounter with a monster and an ax, which I won't spoil it with details for you. It's an ok graphic novel, definitely not terrible, and probably worth it for the 1 cent prices that a lot of people are selling theirs for used on here. 100% not worth it for the $25 price tag listed on the back of the hardcover edition.
