Publisher Comments:

The fifth volume of the acclaimed quarterly comics anthology.

This acclaimed, reasonably priced, quarterly anthology runs approximately 120 pages per volume and spotlights a regular cast of a dozen of today's most exciting cartoonists. Mome is quickly earning a reputation as the premiere literary anthology in comics. Think of something like The Believer or Granta — especially in regard to iconic design, format, and content — but with comics.

The fifth volume of Mome includes the following: Tim Hensley (Weird Tales of the Ramones) returns for the first time since the third volume with the first-installment of his first book-length story, titled Gropius, which tells the story of teen millionaire Wally Gropius, who will be disinherited unless he marries the saddest girl on earth; Martin Cendreda depicts a mostly wordless, surreal adventure starring three peculiar musicians, and what happens when they get together to make music; Kurt Wolfgang delivers Nothing Eve., a story about the day before the end of the world; David Heatley (Deadpan, McSweeney's) contributes several short portrait comics; Paul Hornschemeier continues Life with Mr. Dangerous, a full-color narrative about a young woman who struggles to define a life outside of the example her mother provides, spending far too much time watching a cartoon called Mr. Dangerous; Andrice Arp (Hi-Horse) contributes another retelling of ancient Japanese fairy tales in a lovely two-color format.

The issue also features an interview with Anrice Arp, conducted by Gary Groth, and new work by Anders Nilsen (in full-color), Jeffrey Brown (of Clumsy, Big Head!, and McSweeney's fame), Gabrielle Bell (Scheherazade), Jonathan Bennett (Esoteric Tales), and Sophie Crumb (Belly Button Comix).

Douglas, November 30, 2006 (view all comments by Douglas)
The Mome series is everything the publisher claims it to be, but what I enjoy most are the interviews. Gary Groth set the standard decades ago in his Comics Journal interviews for his intelligent questions, his ability to draw out from cartoonists their thoughts, opinions, theories, even embarrassing moments. Plus, Groth is hated by Harlan Ellison, which is all the more reason to pay attention to him. In Mome, Groth interviews a younger, generally less mature set of cartoonists, since that's what the series is about. He still pulls out fascinating stuff.
