Description: edited by Gary Groth & Eric Reynolds THE PREMIER ANTHOLOGY OF LITERARY COMICS Since its inception in 2005, Mome has overlapped the contemporary graphic novel scene, the literary world, and the graphic arts community by serving as a McSweeney's of comics for those who want a vibrant, quarterly sampler of the best the medium has to offer. Whether exposing new talent like Eleanor Davis (author of the recent Stinky by Toon Books) or Tom Kaczynski; featuring short stories by contemporary graphic novelists like Dash Shaw (The Bottomless Belly Button) or Paul Hornschemeier (The Three Paradoxes); bringing the work of international superstars like David B. (Epileptic) or Killoffer (676 Apparitions of Killoffer) 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 its high production values and mostly color format. Upcoming issues include, in addition to those named above: Jonathan Bennett, Sophie Crumb, Andrice Arp, Kurt Wolfgang, Joe Kimball, Ray Fenwick, Tim Hensley, Al Columbia, Jon Vermilyea, Sara Edward-Corbett, Robert Goodin, Laura Park, Nate Neal, Olivier Schrauwen, Derek Van Gieson, Conor O'Keefe, and other surprises.
