Written and illustrated by Andrice Arp, Gabrielle Bell, Martin Cendreda, Jonathan Bennett, Jeffrey Brown, Sophie Crumb, David Heatley, Paul Hornschemeier, Anders Nilsen, John Pham and Kurt Wolfgang. This accessible, reasonably priced, quarterly anthology runs approximately 136 pages per volume and spotlights a regular cast of a dozen of today's most exciting cartoonists. Designed by acclaimed designer and cartoonist Jordan Crane (The Clouds Above), Mome features an iconic design and consistent format that has quickly established the anthology as the most distinctive and accessible anthology of literary comics available. Mome is the first all-comics literary anthology designed to sit alongside publications like Granta, The Baffler, McSweeney's, et. al., and is designed to appeal as much to fans of contemporary literary fiction as longtime comics fans. Mome features the same collective of artists every issue, allowing the artists and audience to grow together and build an ongoing identity that is highly unusual for the world of contemporary comics (where many authors publish sporadically by literary standards, given the labor intensive nature of comics).
"The best anthology of the year only promises to get better as the book-sized series continues to nurture some of the medium's most interesting young talent...Where most anthologies have, at best, a 50/50 hit/miss ratio, Mome manages to be all-hit, don't miss." – Time
"The affordable collections... [will] handsomely complement McSweeney's on your coffee table." – Seattle Weekly
