This accessible, reasonably priced, quarterly anthology spotlights a cast of a dozen of today's most exciting cartoonists. Mome is quickly earning a reputation as one of the premiere literary anthologies on the market, and the only one comprised entirely of comics. Highlights of the seventh volume include: the concluding chapter 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 Al Columbia, Athens GA's Eleanor Davis (winner of the 2009 Russ Manning Most Promising Newcomer Award), and Polish-American cartoonist Tom Kaczynski; and contributions from Mome regulars such as David Heatley, Paul Hornschemeier, Anders Nilsen, Sophie Crumb, Kurt Wolfgang and Gabrielle Bell.
