MOME Summer 2007 Volume 8
by : Gay Groth
The eighth volumes of the acclaimed quarterly comics anthology--a 2006 Harvey and Eisner Award nominee for Best Anthology. This accessible, reasonably priced, quarterly anthology runs approximately 120 pages per volume and spotlights a cast of a dozen of today's most exciting cartoonists. Mome is quickly earning a reputation as one of the premier literary anthologies on the market, and the only one comprised entirely of comics. Hightlights of the seventh and eighth volumes include: the concluding chapters of Lewis Trondheim's At Loose Ends, an autobiographical diary comic that portrays the acclaimed French cartoonist at a crossroads in his life and work; the Mome debuts of Eleanor Davis, Tom Kaczynski and T. Edward Bak; contributions from Mome regulars such as 2006 Eisner Award Most Promising Newcomer nominees Jonathan Bennett and R.Kikuo Johnson, as well as Tim Hensley, David Heatley, Paul Hornschemeier, Anders Nilsen, Sophie Crumb, Kurt Wolfgang, Andrice Arp, Martin Cendreda, Zak Sally and Gabrielle Bell.
