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.

Reviews

The latest installment of this comics anthology collects the work of 17 up-and-coming comic creators in one glossy volume, cramming in a dizzying variety of works. The book opens with Michael Gagne's beautiful and deeply alien "The Saga of Rex-Soulmates," in which two small, foxlike creatures, deeply in love, follow each other through a series of increasingly strange and symbolic transformations; next is J.P. Ahonen's "The Excitingly Mundane Life of Kenneth Shuri," the charmingly cartoony tale of a suburban ninja's search for a new job. Flight tends toward the wordless and the surreal: small animals pilot mechanical birds (Andrea Offerman's "Mate") or an undead rabbit looks for love ("Dead Bunny" by Nikki Damon and Justin Ridge). Particular standouts in this volume are Rodolphe Guenoden's "Dead at Noon," for the expressiveness and incredibly strong visual storytelling ability of his wordless art, and Graham Annable's "Magnus the Misfit," for its loony sweetness and sheer vitality.
