MOME Spring 2007: Volume 7 based on 0 ratings. 1 reviews.
The Spring 2007 issue of Mome is one of the best yet, and that is largely due to the contributions of two new members of the fold, Eleanor Davis and Tom Kaczynski. Davis' Seven Sacks is wonderfully cute, mysterious, and creepy in equal measures, and bodes well for the future of Mome (assuming that she can maintain the pace required of a regular contributor).The second part of Lewis Trondheim's "At Loose Ends" is a fun ride, and I certainly hope that Trondheim will appear in future editions of Mome. Al Columbia is new to me, but his Chopped-Up People is pretty amazing stuff, both beautiful and horrific at the same time. It's pieces like this that have kept me on board with Mome since the beginning - although Mome is horribly uneven all around, it manages to keep my interest up with surprising and rewarding items such as this piece from Columbia.Lastly, although it may seem like gloating, I'm glad to read in the Editors' Notes for this issue that Gabrielle Bell and Jeffrey Brown will no longer be contributing to Mome. My comment above about Mome being uneven is driven largely by the inclusion of pieces from mediocre creators such as Bell, Brown, and Sophie Crumb. With Eleanor Davis and Tom Kaczynski as the heirs apparent for Bell and Brown, the future of Mome looks bright indeed.
