MOME Spring/Summer 2006 Volume 4
by : Gary Groth
Mome is a quarterly publication, part literary journal in comics form, part objet d'art. The first all-comics literary anthology to sit alongside publications like Granta and The Baffler . It is designed to appeal as much to fans of contemporary literary fiction as long-time comics fans. This quarterly book spotlights a regular cast of today's most exciting up-and-coming cartoonists: John Pham, Paul Hornschemeier, Jeffrey Brown, David Heatly, Sophie Crumb and Marc Bell among others. In the hands of acclaimed designer and cartoonist Jordan Crane, Mome features an eye-catching look and consistent format that will quickly establish it as the most distinctive and accessible anthology of literary comics available.
