MOME: v. 16: Summer 2009
Since its inception in 2005, Mome has served as a McSweeney's for comics. Whether exposing new talent like Eleanor Davis (author of the recent Stinky by Toon Books); featuring short stories by contemporary graphic novelists like Dash Shaw ( The Bottomless Belly Button ); bringing the work of international superstars like David B. ( Epileptic ) to American audiences; or introducing the work of legends like Gilbert Shelton ( The Fabulous Furry Freak Brothers ) to a new generation of readers, Mome is the most acclaimed, accessible, frequent, and reasonably priced anthology on the market despite it's high production values and mostly color format. Upcoming issues include, in addition to those named above: Jonathan Bennett, Sophie Crumb, Kurt Wolfgang, Ray Fenwick, Al Columbia, Laura Park, and other surprises.
