MOME is an accessible, reasonably priced quarterly running approximately 120 pages per volume, mostly in color, and spotlighting the most exciting new storytellers in comics along with special surprises.

  • Jews and American Comics: An Illustrated History of an American Art Form

    Sert Kapak
    A treasure trove of Jewish comic book art by both acknowledged masters and little-known stars, from Rube Goldberg to Aline Kominsky Crumb."Jews built the comic book industry from the ground up, and the influence of Jewish writers, artists, and editors continues to be felt to this day."—MAD magazine writer Arie KaplanReaders have long cherished the work of comic masters such as Will Eisner, Jules Feiffer, and Art Spiegelman, all of whom happen to be Jewish. Few, however, are probably aware that the Jewish role in creating the American comic art form is no less significant than the Jewish influence on Hollywood filmmaking. Filled with the most stunning examples of this vital artistic tradition, Jews and American Comics tells us how the "people of the book" became the people of the comic book.With three brief essays by Paul Buhle, the well-known historian of American Jewish life, Jews and American Comics offers readers a pictorial backstory tracing Jewish involvement in comic art from several little-known strips in Yiddish newspapers of the early twentieth century through the mid-century origins of the modern comic book and finally to contemporary comic art, which has at last found its place in museums, in private collections, and on the bookshelves of both critics and millions of avid readers.Featuring more than two hundred examples of the work of Jewish comic artists going back a century—much of which has been unavailable to the general public for decades—this extraordinary collection will be a major contribution to Jewish and American cultural history. Jews and American Comics is also a gorgeous package, sure to be treasured by comic art lovers and fans of Jewish culture—and destined to become the bar and bat mitzvah gift of the decade.

  • Deitch's Pictorama

    Karton Kapak
    Presenting a new type of graphic fiction from a legendary family in American cartooning. Underground cartoonist Kim Deitch has recruited his entire cast of siblings to produce a unique, all-new "picto-fiction" pocket book. Deitch's Pictorama leads off with Kim's comic "The Sunshine Girl." Then it's time for Seth's prose short story "Children of Aruf," about a man and his dog... in a world where dogs talk. Third up is "Unlikely Hours," a paranoid picto-story about a conspiracy of sentient rats written by Seth and illustrated by Kim. Next comes "The Golem," once again written by Seth and decorated with a series of superb pencil illustrations by Simon, a prose novella about the mythical Jewish monster/protector. Kim wraps with "The Cop on the Beat, the Man in the Moon and Me," one last comic - this one autobiographical. The book features an introduction by the Academy Award-winning animator, cartoonist and illustrator Gene (Tom and Jerry) Deitch, who happens to be the proud father of the trio.

  • The Littlest Pirate King

    Sert Kapak
    For decades they have roamed the seas, this shipload of undead pirates. They are desperate to die, but every time they try to dash their ship to splinters and end their miserable existence, a malevolent God scoops them out of danger. And so they have no choice but to continue to sail the seas, looting and killing. Until one day, having exterminated yet another ship of the living, they come across a pink little baby. Adopting him as their mascot and dubbing him their “Littlest King,” they continue their journeys. But eventually the King begins to grow up...Adapted by David B., the acclaimed creator of Epileptic, from a short story by Pierre Mac Orlan (which was published decades before the release of the Pirates of the Caribbean movies, thank you very much), The Littlest King is David B.’s first full-color graphic novel to be released in English, and his vivid palette combines with his stunningly elegant graphics to create a magical yarn that can be enjoyed by young and old alike. 48 pages of full-color comics

  • Twilight of the Assholes (The Chronicles of the Era of Darkness 2005-2009)

    Karton Kapak
    Tim Kreider’s first cartoon collection, The Pain—When Will It End? was one of the few bastions of sanity throughout the awful aberration in American history known as the Bush Administration. The end of his second volume of political cartoons, Why Do They Kill Me?, saw its author in despair over the 2004 election. In this new volume, Twilight of the Assholes, as reality gets ever bleaker, Kreider’s humor becomes increasingly apocalyptic, deranged, and hilarious. He juxtaposes the Biblical Christ with His blonde, flag-draped, machine-gun-toting American incarnation in “Jesus vs. Jeezus,” proposes a third political party that represents Americans’ real values in “The Sex Party,” draws the dead Saddam Hussein as a mischievous invisible imp still causing trouble, and envisions the officials of the Bush administration getting their comeuppance in the grisly fashion of Dick Tracy villains. And he finds two cartoons’ worth of “Reasons to Look Forward to the Next Terrorist Attack.” Also included is his infamous entry into Iran’s Holocaust cartoon contest, “Silver Linings of the Holocaust.”Kreider mocks not only the evil and hapless Bush but the fecklessness of progressives, the imbecile bigotry of radical Islam, and, most of all, the dumb bovine complacency of the American voter. His art has become even more dense with gags and his writing (most recently featured in the New York Times) has never been more astute and devastating. Twilight of the Assholes is an hysterical chronicle of the end of the Era of Darkness, and, believe it or not, a heartening document of one man’s loss and tentative restoration of faith in democracy. Black-and-white cartoons and illustration throughout

  • MOME Summer 2005 (Vol. 1) (v. 1)

    MOME Summer 2005 (Vol. 1) (v. 1)

    Karton Kapak
    A new quarterly anthology of the best new talent in the sequential arts. Written and Illustrated by Andrice Arp, Gabrielle Bell, Marc Bell, Jonathan Bennett, Jeffrey Brown, Sophie Crumb, Sammy Harkham, David Heatley, Paul Hornschemeier, Anders Nilsen, John Pham, and Kurt Wolfgang. Designed by Jordan Crane. Edited by Gary Groth & Eric Reynolds. MOME: (mome) n. 1. (archaic) blockhead; fool. 2. The cutting-edge of literary comics for the 21st Century. Every "period" in modern comics history has had its anthology that tapped into the zeitgeist and foreshadowed a new "generation" of cartoonists (Zap in the '60s; Arcade in the '70s; RAW and Weirdo in the '80s, etc.). For the new millennium, there is MOME. This accessible, reasonably priced quarterly book 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, 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. Awareness of comics with greater aesthetic ambition continues to rise simultaneous to the rebirth of the literary journal, as seen with publications like McSweeney's (which features several MOMEcontributors) or The Believer magazine. Though virtually every cutting-edge literary journal these days has flirted with comics, 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. Like R. Crumb's legendary Zap anthology, 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). The first volume of MOME will feature the following: John Pham's (Epoxy) "221 Sycamore Street" follows the lives of five main characters who live in a single, two-story "craftsmen" style house in Los Angeles. The strip will be comprised of stand alone one-pagers that overlap storylines to create a larger narrative. Presented in the form of a big, vertical Sunday newspaper page, Pham's mix of form and content harken back to classic serial strips like Gasoline Alley. Paul Hornschemeier (Mother Come Home and Forlorn Funnies) contributes a six-part graphic novella titled "Life with Mr. Dangerous." This full-color narrative centers around two characters, Amy Breis and Mr. Dangerous. Amy struggles to define a life outside of the example her mother provides (working as a retail clerk all her life). Amy's past and present romantic life are a mess, the only person she cares about lives half the country away in San Francisco, and she finds herself spending far too much time watching a cartoon, "Mr. Dangerous." Anders Nilsen's (Big Questions) "The Beast" is a full-color, 12-page absurdist monologue by a single character on the push-and-pull of art and politics, aesthetics and state violence, freedom and responsibility. Things happen around him, he is imprisoned and set free, there are conspiracies, intrigues, but his attention scarcely leaves the philosophical problems. Presented as a series of two-page spreads, each spread features a color landscape photograph, with characters, actions, and objects superimposed by Nilsen. Jeffrey Brown (Clumsy, McSweeney's) contributes a brutal character study about a young man who turns up missing. His car is found a week later, his body days after that in an abandoned warehouse. The possibility of foul play looms large, but what really happened is both simple and senseless and makes one question how much or little friendship can mean. David Heatley (McSweeney's) contributes the first of a series of stories revolving around a cast of characters in a town called "Overpeck" (also the name of the strip). Originally conceived in a dream, as are many of Heatley's comics, he has fleshed out his initial, unconscious creations into a developed cast of characters that inhabit this town, with each self-contained story focusing on a different character or characters. Andrice Arp adapts a Japanese fairy tale called "Jewels of the Sea." A prince loses his brother's best fish hook and travels to the bottom of the sea to find it, only to discover treasures beyond his imagining. Kurt Wolfgang (Where Hats Go) delivers a wordless, two-color comic fable, starring a boy who makes a wish by throwing a coin from a bridge into a creek. The coin sets off a chain reaction of unexpected events that eventually lead to his wish being fulfilled before his very eyes. Gabrielle Bell contributes "The Upstairs Cowboy," a short story and period piece focusing on a conversation between a young struggling artist and a successful but troubled entrepreneur, at the height of the 1990's dot-com boom. Jonathan Bennett (Esoteric Tales) delivers a tale about a man who looks out his apartment window with binoculars and sees a promising bunch of trash out for pick-up on the corner. What he finds upon further inspection takes him in unexpected directions... The first volume is rounded out with autobiography from the Harvey Award-nominated "Best New Talent" Sophie Crumb (Belly Button Comix), as well as new comics from Marc Bell (Shrimpy & Paul) and Sammy Harkham (Kramer's Ergot).

    Karton Kapak
    This accessible, reasonably priced 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 fourth volume of Mome includes the following: R. Kikuo Johnson (Night Fisher) contributes a series of comic strips created for a gallery show in New York City that could be mistaken for a forgotten classic from the Sunday Funnies circa 1935; John Pham's "221 Sycamore Street," an ongoing graphic novel about three very strange people who board in a two-story house, presented in a unique three-color process; 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"; David Heatley (Deadpan, McSweeney's) weaves a surreal, layered graphic novel around the inhabitants of Overpeck, a city he conceived in a dream; and Andrice Arp's (Hi-Horse) retelling of ancient Japanese fairy tales in a lovely two-color format. The issue also features new work by Anders Nilsen (in full-color), Jeffrey Brown (of Clumsy, Big Head!, andMcSweeney's fame), Kurt Wolfgang (Where Hats Go), Gabrielle Bell (Scheherazade), Jonathan Bennett (Esoteric Tales), Martin Cendreda (Dang!), Sophie Crumb (Belly Button Comix), and Tim Hensley (Weird Tales of the Ramones).
