If you're interested in what's "happening" and "now" in comics, there's one place to turn: Mome, our quarterly anthology of the best in contemporary, cutting-edge cartooning.

This bundle includes Volumes 6-10 — including all of our 2008 Eisner Award-nominated issues — at nearly 1/3 OFF the combined cover prices! Don't miss out on this incredible deal.
Every "period" in modern comics history has had its anthology that tapped into the zeitgeist and foreshadowed a new "generation" of cartoonists (Zap in the '60s; Arcade in the '70s; RAW and Weirdo in the '80s, etc.). For the new millennium, there is Mome. Originally designed by acclaimed designer and cartoonist Jordan Crane, this quarterly book spotlights a regular cast of a dozen of today's most exciting cartoonists. Though virtually every cutting-edge literary journal these days has flirted with comics, 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. Like R. Crumb's legendary Zap anthology, Mome features a repertory collective of artists, allowing the artists and audience to grow together and build an ongoing identity that is highly unusual for the world of contemporary comics.
Collectively, these 5 volumes of Mome present work from two dozen of comics' finest talents, including its brightest young stars, as well as a few seasoned veterans: Andrice Arp, Gabrielle Bell, Jonathan Bennett, Émile Bravo, Jeffrey Brown, Martin Cendreda, Al Columbia, Sophie Crumb, Eleanor Davis, Jeremy Eaton, Ray Fenwick, Robert Goodin, John Hankiewicz, David Heatley, Paul Hornschemeier, R. Kikuo Johnson, Tom Kaczynski, Joe Kimball, Anders Nilsen, Zak Sally, Dash Shaw Mike Scheer, Lewis Trondheim, Kurt Wolfgang, and Jim Woodring. And to cap it all off, each volume features an in-depth interview with one of the contributors, conducted by Gary Groth. Whew!

"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
