Editorial Reviews

About the Author

Kazu Kibuishi was 24 years old and working full-time in the animation industry when he began developing the idea of doing Flight. He began contacting his friends in the animation, comics, and graphic novel world to see if they would want to join the project. Little did he know that it would draw him into comics full-time. He now works from his home studio in Pasadena, California, creating and promoting Flight and his popular young adult comic Daisy Kutter, which was nominated as an American Library Association Best Book for Young Adults -- the only graphic novel on the list in 2005.

Flight is truly spectacular!

Some stories are funny, some are serious, some are sad, some are about simple joy.

Flight is a compliation of comics and short stories featuring the best in modern graphic design. The stories are sweet and often a bit heart warming, not for ones who prefer their comics full of gore. Comes in a super thick high quality, paperback with glossy pages, you'll find yourself turning page after page and staring in wonder. Would make a really excellent gift for the artist or art lover in your life. Flight is truly spectacular!

For those unfamiliar with the series, Flight is a compilation of short stories by a wide range of artists. Typically, these are solo jobs, with the artist handling all duties. The subjects vary, though many take place in fantastic other-worldly places. Some stories are funny, some are serious, some are sad, some are about simple joy. The quality is almost entirely very high: great stories married to terrific illustration. There are very few duds to be found (only one comes to mind for me in this book).

My favorites from this volume: Solomon Fix by Doug TenNapel (wonderful illustration style, great humor and characters, great minimalist color -- would like to see more of this world); Dance of the Sugar Plums by Don Hertzfeldt (simple drawings married to weird scenes scripted on post-it notes); Laika by Doug Holgate (really charming story about a dog shot into space); The Ride by Rodolphe Guenoden (beautiful illustrations with excellent story-telling). There are many other great selections as well, but those are my picks.

If you're a fan of anthologies that display the talents of a diverse selection of very creative people, give this one a shot.

Format: Paperback
As a huge fan of independent comics, one of the big issues I have is that a lot of the work out there is hard to access or really enjoy, as it's either too small to "find", and/or too far out there to really justify a purchase. This anthology does a fantastic job of compiling a fascinating variety of good, solid and most importantly, imaginative works from lots of small time one-off illustrators/writers.

The result is a fairly substantial "grab-bag" of assorted goodness. Most of the pieces are only a couple of pages long, so there's room for a lot of different flavors. And while throwing a lot of different work into a single anthology is in-and-of-itself not a Herculean Task...having all that material generally organized in a way that's both worthwhile and engaging is. And that's where this book excels...the quality of the work in here, and the way in which is presented is both refreshing and rewarding.

There is definitely something for everybody in here, and I would be hard-pressed to say that the "something" in that statement is limited to any one single "thing".

If I were attempt to seriously list out major works whose unique style might be reflected in this here collection.... I would maybe venture to say something like "If you like Bone, Amulet, Bloom County/Outland, etc.... you'd enjoy this" but it's really hard (in the best way possible) to simply reference any any one particular thing that gets at the majority of the work in here.

So if you're a fan of independent comics, and like unique visual/writing styles that actually have some substance to them, and are looking for a nice Sunday read ...well then I am going to go right ahead and highly recommend you pick this up...you'll be glad you did!

Format: Paperback
This anthology of whimsical comics clocks in with 30+ stories spread out over 430 pages. While the quality of art is of fairly high quality the stories themselves are a somewhat mixed bag.

Format: Paperback
Flight, volume two, picks up where the first left off, which is to showcase amazing young illustrators telling strange stories vaguely (or directly) related to flight and flying. This is a hefty one of 430 pages that contains the work of 33 artists telling their stories.

The set opens with an amazing wordless story (many of the subsequent pieces in this volume are wordless as well) about a young space fox engaging with a cool flying space fox that splits his planet in two, the first of a fantastic series about Rex by Michael Gagne that continues until Volume Seven. Wow! "Solomon Fix" shows a young dogy preparing for a weird afternoon tea, dealing with the anxiety of having visitors. Yes, very strange indeed, and some wild, edgy architecture and physical comedy. Wonderful stuff. "Robot Sparrow" shows some wild, innocent stuff - a robot learns how to dream by interacting with a migrating sparrow. Oooo-kay.... "Dead Souls Day Out", a Malinky Robot Story, shows what happens in a future wasteland when two urchins run into some money. "Monster Slayers" has some nice artwork, but not much of a story; it's about luckless monster slayers hired to slay a tentacled well-monster in the desert. "The Golden Temple" by Neil Babra continues the story of a young Indian emigre who returns to his native land, this time wryly interacting with a cousin in another part of India from wherever it was that he had his glass of water in Volume One. Aaaaahhh... Don Hertzfeld's bold stick figure drawings are eery, efficient, and more than just a little creepy! "Destiny Express" is a well-drawn, but very quietly naive pice set in a train station of the interaction between an old conductor with a guilty past and a young artist who wants to become trapped in time. Great drawings!!
