“Too Cool To Be Forgotten is a story that demonstrates that comic books can be as profound and moving as they can be funny and entertaining, and that is exactly what this team hopes to replicate on the screen.”
Cartoonist, Alex Robinson, whose previous works Box Office Poison and Tricked brought him critical acclaim, was praised for his publication, Too Cool To Be Forgotten, which earned him the Harvey Award for Best Original Graphic Novel.
