Overview

New York Times best-selling author and Eisner-nominated creator of iZombie, Chris Roberson, delivers a magical new ongoing series. With art by the fantastical Rich Ellis, and covers by the legendary Michael WM Kaluta. MEMORIAL is the story of Em, a young woman who arrives at a hospital in Portland, Oregon with no memory of her past. A year later, she has managed to rebuild her life, finding a job and friends, when her existence is thrown into turmoil after she inherits a magical shop, the kind that appears in an alley one instant and disappears the next. Em finds herself drawn into a supernatural conflict between immortal beings representing the fundamental aspects of the universe itself. All of existence is at stake, and the only things standing in the way of total oblivion are Em, the magical shop, and a talking cat.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
An amnesic finds herself wandering the streets of a modern city; labeled Miss Em, she has no idea she has a tie to the Everlands, a land of myths and stories ruled over by a powerful and ambitious queen, nor even that the Everlands exists. A chance encounter with the proprietor of a mysterious vanishing shop returns a valuable icon to her; this in turn makes her the subject of a hunt that will take her across worlds and end in a confrontation with her lost past. She's eventually joined by a talking cat named Shroedinger and more fantastic figures who help spice up Em's somewhat underdeveloped character. Roberson's tale of a forgotten heritage hits all the right notes without being incredibly original. Ellis's artwork is somewhere between cartoony and naturalistic, and sometimes displays some awkward anatomy. The basic sense of wonder comes through, however. (Oct.)
