Forgetless #5

I've really liked this little series about an exclusive club night in New York and the people that it attracts, including two models/hit girls, a television and movie star with a sex addiction who likes to go around in a big fuzzy panda suit, a guy who makes Youtube videos of himself having sex with public buildings, and a trio of New Jersey teenagers with dreams of the big city.

The first four issues were split between two short stories, which slowly filled in the plot-lines for these different characters.  This issue has everyone meeting up, except for the Jersey kids, who basically got their own back-up throughout the series.  The lead feature is split between two artists, who have pretty different styles, although that juxtaposition is used to good effect.

Forgetless is a fun and amusing story, which is really tapped in to the zeitgeist.  The characters are prime examples of technology-addicted youth, and the pacing is quick and witty.  This would read great in trade, and is highly recommended.
