Since its inception in 2005, MOME has served as a McSweeney’s for comics. Whether exposing new talent like Eleanor Davis (author of the recent Stinky by Toon Books); featuring short stories by contemporary graphic novelists like Dash Shaw (The Bottomless Belly Button); bringing the work of international superstars like David B. (Epileptic) to American audiences; or introducing the work of legends like Gilbert Shelton (The Fabulous Furry Freak Brothers) to a new generation of readers, MOME is the most acclaimed, accessible, frequent, and reasonably priced anthology on the market despite its high production values and mostly color format.
