From the critically-acclaimed cartoonist behind Box Office Poison and Tricked comes the delightful 2 Cool 2 B 4Gotten, a story of second chances.
Andy Wicks is a forty-something father of two who's making one final attempt to quit smoking: hypnosis. He's skeptical it will work, but is stunned to find that when he emerges from his trance, he's fifteen years old — and it's 1985! Is he doomed to relive the worst four years of his life or will this second go-round finally give him the answers he's been missing all his life? If nothing else he'll finally get to ask out Marie Simone from history class...

Praise For Too Cool To Be Forgotten

"This is Alex Robinson's best book, and one of the rare comics not written by Stan Lee to perfectly capture the tragedy and triumph of being a teenager. Totally recommended." —Brian K. Vaughan, author of Y: The Last ManEx Machina, and Saga

"My favorite comic of the year." —Jeff Smith, creator of Bone

"With this slim volume, Robinson cements his reputation as a master cartoonist." Publishers Weekly

"Touching and funny ... By the story's end, wish fulfillment has become something much more challenging and, frankly, beautiful. There's a lot going on in this little book." —Cory Doctorow, Boing Boing
