MOME: (MOME) N. 1. (archaic) blockhead; fool. 2. the cutting-edge of literary comics for the 21st century.This accessible, reasonably priced, quarterly anthology will run approximately 136 pages per volume and spotlight a regular cast of a dozen of today's most exciting cartoonists. Designed by acclaimed designer and cartoonist Jordan Crane (The Clouds Above), MOME will feature an iconic design and consistent format that should quickly establish the anthology as the most distinctive and accessible anthology of literary comics available.MOME is the first all-comics literary anthology designed to sit alongside publications like Granta, The Baffler, McSweeney's, et. al., and is designed to appeal as much to fans of contemporary literary fiction as longtime comics fans. MOME will feature the same collective of artists every issue, allowing the artists and audience to grow together and build an ongoing identity that is highly unusual for the world of contemporary comics (where many authors publish sporadically by literary standards, given the labor intensive nature of comics). This third issue of MOME will include the following: John Pham's "221 Sycamore Street," presented in a unique three-color process and design that recalls the classic strip Gasoline Alley; Paul Hornschemeier's "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"; and David Heatley (Deadpan, McSweeney's) tells a story from the fictional town of Overpeck, a city he conceived in a dream. The issue also features new work by Anders Nilsen (in full-color), Jeffrey Brown (of Clumsy, Big Head!, and McSweeney's fame), Andrice Arp (Sheherezade), Kurt Wolfgang (Where Hats Go), Gabrielle Bell (Sheherezade), Jonathan Bennett (Esoteric Tales), Sophie Crumb (Belly Button Comix), and Marc Bell (Shrimpy & Paul).
