A hilarious graphic novel in which the human race has been supplanted by a sweeter, kinder, happier species…but are they as innocent as they seem? In this post-apocalyptic comedy, it’s survival of the cutest!

After the most adorable apocalypse ever, the human race has vanished from the earth, replaced cute, innocent, playful purple creatures called the Puramus. In this hilarious and epic graphic novel, short interlocking stories follow the purple pals as they explore their new home, form a mini-monarchy, and develop a modern society on par with 21st-century humans. A final act pulls us across time and space in the search for clues to the origins of the Puramus. Along the way, humor and intrigue abound: Can King defend his village when nobody understands what war is? Will Jingle work up the nerve to read her poetry at open mic night? Will Puff Puff ever stop floating? Based on the viral Tumblr comic that gained 18,000 followers in just one year, We Are Here Forever is for fans of post-apocalyptic sci-fi blended with dry comedy and undeniable cuteness. Colorful and cartoony art will you rooting for these cute critters through their absurd adventures. But where did they come from, and what happened to all the humans?


This story was based on a webcomic…which I didn’t quite know before I requested it. I thought that it would be fine. I mean, these are cute little blob things that are taking over the world? How much do I need to know before I start reading about them? Um, oddly enough, I think I needed to have known quite a bit more.

The art was quite cute. I liked the color scheme and the drawing style. Gish draws with a fun, exciting style that just seems happy. It’s very adorable, and she really made the purple blobish creatures work. The art was definitely the highlight of the book. 

As I mentioned in the first part of the book, I didn’t fully get this? This seemed to be like extra little stories for those that enjoyed the webcomic. It was supposed to be a standalone novel that could be read as such or for fans of the story. However, I still don’t quite understand the world, why they were there, and how they got to where they are. Perhaps by the end, it became a bit more clear, but from the summary, I thought that it would be hilarious misadventures of these adorable creatures that would shed a light/make fun of all the ways that human killed the world. Instead, there was like a whole story about a search for a skateboard or something? A hat?

I also really did find much funny? Like it was light hearted, and there were a few panels that I thought were fantastic. However, I didn’t really get the point or have any witty, hilarious moments that I expected were coming.

Overall: adorable art, but you will definitely struggle if you don’t have previous knowledge of the world/storyline. I definitely floundered with that and was not able to enjoy as a standalone graphic novel. But super cute art!!

  1. That’s helpful to know this story is based on a web comic. The art looks so cute and the story seems interesting, so I’ll check out the webcomic before I pick this book up. Nice review 🙂!
