Comicdomâs premier anthology of new lit comicsâa 2006, 2007 and 2008 Eisner and Harvey Award nominee for âBest Anthology.âThe influence of Fantagraphicsâ flagship anthology of new comic art and storytelling continues to grow with annual award nominations, a widely-acknowledged banner 2008 that found MOME on many year-end criticsâ lists, increasing academic and library interest, several gallery exhibitions mounted nationwide, and an increasingly potent well of top-notch, known and unknown talent making every issue a surprising, dense and delightful read. With this season, the quarterly journal of comics will have brought over 2,000 pages of new comics to the world since its inception in 2005.
Upcoming contributors of short stories to MOME include: Lilli CarrÃ©, Laura Park, Olivier Schrauwen, Tom Kaczynski, Dash Shaw, Ray Fenwick, Ãmile Bravo, Andrice Arp, Al Columbia, Eleanor Davis, Nathan Neal, Conor OâKeefe, Jon Vermilyea, Jonathan Bennett, Robert Goodin, Sara Edward-Corbett, Derek Van Gieson, and many more.
2009 saw the end of three serials for MOMEâlegendary cartoonist Gilbert ShelÂ¬tonâs serialized graphic novel, âLast Gig in Shngrlig,â Paul Hornschemeierâs âLife with Mr. Dangerous,â and Tim Hensleyâs âWally Gropiusââ and the launch of two more.
T. Edward Bakâs biography of German naturalist Georg Wilhelm Stellerâwho traveled with Vitus Bering on what is generally known as the Second Kamchatka Expedition in 1741âis certain to eventually become one of the most acclaimed graphic novels of the decade. In the hands of Bak, Stellerâs narrative story transcends natural history, science and biography and becomes a riveting, beautifully illustrated drama.
Ted Stearnâs cult favorite characters have struck a chord with comic lovers over the years (Matt Groening declares them âwhy I love comicsâ) in two previous graphic novels, Fuzz & Pluck and Fuzz & Pluck: Splitsville. Stearn now graces MOME with a new, serialized adventure in which the hapless Fuzz & Pluck discover a literal money tree. The ensuing entanglement of intrigue and desire is a surrealist, picaresque tour de force of comics storytelling with strong thematical ties to Americaâs housing and financial meltdown, and the dreams that led to it. Thereâs also a pirate, and we all know that pirates sell. 120 color illustrations
