The story is ok, though moves a bit fast as the previous reviewer here said, I think it would have had maximum impact with a slower pace and more development of Aokigahara(the suicide forest) as a character, so to speak. The dialogue was ok, but again, a little abrupt and too quick to the point where some obfuscation of character feelings and storyline would have created more impact in the end. However, if you like mature and more psychological horror, or especially love Japanese(or any asian) horror, you should probably check this out. The art works really well for the story too, with creepy, shadowy earthen colors suggesting verdant, though decrepit forests throughout the whole thing or blues and greys conjuring up the ghostly colors of the spirit world.
Now for the final tidbit. The Suicide forest is based off of Japan's Aokigahara Jukai, a lush but eerily quiet forest at the base of Mount Fuji. It is said that there are at least 100 suicides there per year, but that the authorities have stopped publicizing actual death counts. There are occasional sweeps for bodies over the year and often eerie reminders are left behind after police have removed bodies, such as torn up identity cards, photos, letters, empty pill containers, backpacks, shoes, and even bones sometimes. Indeed "The Suicide Forest" tries to capture a part of this, but invariably the real life stuff is more tragic and more interesting. It's worth doing some research on, as apparently it's not just a modern phenomenon, Aokigahara has long been a place where people go to die.
(A great video on this can be watched at Vimeo's website or by searching the video section of Google.
So all in all, great comic and very interesting subject matter. Fully recommended.
The art is minimalistic but occasionally effectively disturbing. The flow of the narrative seems abrupt at times (my only real complaint is that the story should have been allowed to sprawl out a little longer), but mainly flows smoothly. There is a growing sense of dread and the sense that this, like the movies it is so clearly inspired by, would make a fantastic film.
Some of the panel choreography is really impressive, such as [SPOILER] one tragic sequence where a desperately lonely character commits suicide in despair while her erstwhile boyfriend, who had just rejected her, has casual sex with an acquaintance [END SPOILER].
While I haven't read all of El Torres' work, I can say with certainty that Suicide Forest is MANY times more satisfying and mature than the only other example I've read, the somewhat juvenile T&A saga "Nancy in Hell". Overall, I would recommend this to any fans of Japanese ghost tales, as it is true to it's source and a great, creepy story in its own right.
