Forming –
Jesse Moynihan

Forming, a weekly webcomic, is the exceptionally strange work of Philadelphia artist and musician Jesse Moynihan. The best description I can devise is recombinant creation-mythology fan fiction. With a cast of characters named for figures from Zoroastrian, Mithraic, Greek, Egyptian and Hebrew mythology, it’s a kind of fictional prehistory in the vein of von Daniken’s “Chariots of the Gods”, though these gods from outer space talk like jaded hipsters. Recommended if you like alien androgynes being punched through the head by mysterious ape-creatures.

If you’re not busy this afternoon, catch up from the start. You can listen to Moynihan’s band Make a Rising while you’re at it.
