Overview

The seventh 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.

MOME Spring 2007: Volume 7 4 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 1 reviews.
dr_zirk on LibraryThing More than 1 year ago
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.
