Forever 16 is a webcomic found on DeviantArt about Joel Maxwell, a 16-year-old in Minnesota during the '90s, who is a big fan of music, cartoons and movies.

His friends include his disgruntled food court worker girlfriend, Michelle Hseign; his best friends, Steve and Aaron; Steve's girlfriend, the punk rocker Jocelyn (she, Joel, Steve and Aaron form the band Westworld), and the animation fanatic and object of Aaron's unwanted affection, Kendra.


The series takes place in the 1990s and allows the author, JB Warner, to pay homage to the culture of that time while quite a number of strips take place in modern times as well.

The comic ended up being rebooted and renamed Nineteen-Ninety-Something in late 2014 due to JB wanting the comic to have more development and take place entirely throughout the 90s, which was his original intention.
