Mome Vol. 1-10 Mega-Bundle
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. With so many volumes in print, it can be difficult to know where to start... so we've made it easy for you by offering Volumes 1-10 in one convenient package at nearly 1/3 OFF the combined cover prices! Don't miss out on this incredible deal.
Collectively, these 10 volumes of Mome present work from over two dozen of comics' finest talents, including its brightest young stars, as well as a few seasoned veterans (in approximate order of appearance): John Pham, Paul Hornschemeier, Anders Nilsen, Jeffrey Brown, David Heatley, Andrice Arp, Kurt Wolfgang, Gabrielle Bell, Jonathan Bennett, Martin Cendreda, Sophie Crumb, David B., R. Kikuo Johnson, Zak Sally, Robert Goodin, Lewis Trondheim, Al Columbia, Eleanor Davis, Tom Kaczynski, Ray Fenwick, Joe Kimball, Émile Bravo, Mike Scheer, Jim Woodring, Dash Shaw and John Hankiewicz. And to cap it all off, each volume features an in-depth interview with one of the contributors, conducted by Gary Groth. Whew!
Ten color/b&w 7" x 9" softcovers, approx. 1,200 pages total • $99.99
Celebrating its 25th anniversary in 2007, Love and Rockets was finally released in its most accessible form yet: As a series of compact, thick, affordable, mass-market volumes that present the whole story, originally serialized in Love and Rockets Vol. 1 from 1982 to 1996, in perfect chronological order. Now that the series is complete, we are pleased to offer all seven volumes — nearly 2,000 pages of incredible comics — for a special package price.
Nothing directly to do with comics but Steven Weissman writes on his Flickr page: "We rescued this kitten out of a bird's nest in one of our cypress trees this weekend. We're taking care of it for now, but if anyone wants her, please let us know. She's cute, sleeping through the night and maybe 3-4 weeks old."
Are you going to pass up the opportunity to adopt a cat who thinks it's a bird??
To a very great extent, Love and Rockets is synonymous with Hoppers’ Maggie & Hopey and Palomar’s Luba & Carmen & Heraclio & Tonantzin... but there was always more to L&R than that. Amor Y Cohetes finally collects together in one convenient package all the non-Maggie and non-Palomar stories by all three Hernandez Brothers from that classic first, 50-issue Love and Rockets series — a dizzying array of styles and approaches that re-confirms these groundbreaking cartoonists’ place in the history of comics.
The book leads off with Gilbert’s original 40-page sci-fi epic “BEM” from 1981’s very first issue of Love and Rockets, featuring a very different Luba and a much looser, Heavy Metal- and Marvel Comics-inspired way of storytelling.
Other stories include Jaime’s charming “Rocky and Fumble” series starring a planet-hopping girl and her robot; stunning one-shots such as Gilbert’s Frida Kahlo biography “Frida” and his shocking autobiographical fantasia “My Love Book”; Mario’s genre thrillers which take place “Somewhere in California”; Gilbert’s brutally dystopian “Errata Stigmata” stories; the playful “Hernandez Satyricon,” with Gilbert drawing Jaime’s characters, and “War Paint,” with Jaime trying out Palomar; Gilbert’s light-hearted “Music for Monsters” starring Bang and Inez; and even a fantastical “non-continuity” Maggie and Hopey story “Easter Hunt” by Jaime that didn’t fit into the other books.
Amor Y Cohetes, the seventh (and concluding, for now) volume in the new “Complete Love and Rockets” series of compact, affordable paperbacks, shows a very different side of Los Bros Hernandez.
Mome Vol. 11 - Summer 2008
Vol. 11 of our acclaimed anthology series welcomes Killoffer, the acclaimed French cartoonist whose work has previously only been seen in the acclaimed collection 176 Apparitions of Killoffer. Killoffer delivers a new 12-page comic as well as front and back covers. MOME also features returning regulars Al Columbia, Kurt Wolfgang, Ray Fenwick, Eleanor Davis, Dash Shaw, John Hankiewicz, Emile Bravo, Andrice Arp, Tom Kaczynski, and Paul Hornschemeier. Plus, newcomers Conor O'Keefe and Nate Neal, as well as an interview with Ray Fenwick by Gary Groth.
The Incredible Flutist is an uncirculated 1953-54 record cover painting by Flora that was intended for a 7-inch RCA Victor EP. Jim Flora Art LLC is offering a limited edition fine art print.
According to a purchase order discovered in the Flora archives, the work was commissioned by RCA in late 1953, but there's no indication it was finished, accepted, or used on a commercially released EP. This painting has not previously been published or offered in any form. An alternate version appeared in the book The Mischievous Art of Jim Flora.
Only 20 numbered prints of this work have been produced. Following the sale of two launch prints, edition prints are available for sale at JimFlora.com.
Fantagraphics was in full effect at the 2008 Stumptown Comics Fest. Your humble reporter was only there for Saturday of the two-day event, but had a smashing time (and went 200% over budget buying comics, art & t-shirts — yikes). Here's a brief video clip of our table:
