In 1794, a young man named John is given a map. Curious, he follows it, and when he arrives at the end, all he finds is an identical map with a new destination. This leads him to another map, and then another, and on and on. Determined to find something – anything – else, he continues to follow these strange maps all over the country. Decades later, he realizes that as long as he follows them, he doesn’t seem to get older… and it’s not until nearly a century later that he learns when he stops, time catches up with him.

Torn between family and immortality, John must continually choose between living forever and having a life worth living.

The Forever Maps is an 85-page graphic novel by Canadian writer Michael Lagacé and Bulgarian artist Todor Hristov. Their first full-length collaboration, it is a story that takes over a lifetime.
