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.
This week's free preview is a downloadable 15-page excerpt from Mome Vol. 11: Summer 2008, the latest upcoming volley in our quarterly cutting-edge comix anthology. The excerpt includes work by this issue's three newcomers: Killoffer (shown above), Nate Neal and Conor O'Keefe.

(As a reminder, 20/20 Club members receive these previews two weeks before we post them on the website, just one of many great reasons to join up...)
We received advance copies of a plethora of upcoming books at the office last week. Time permitting, we'll be bringing you a photographic sneak peek of a different book each day this week! Today we've got Mome Vol. 11: for a Flickr slideshow, click here, or to browse manually, click here.
One of my favorite newer cartoonists is Tom Kaczynski, a regular contributor to MOME. His 14-page story in the forthcoming Vol. 11, "Million Year Boom," just might be his best story yet. Here's a couple of lovely panels. Can't read 'em? Sorry, you'll have to buy the issue!
By the way, have I mentioned who's on the cover of Vol. 11 yet? He also has a fantastic 12-page story in the issue, as well.
