When the first FLIGHT anthology appeared in 2007, some people thought it was the beginning of a new school of comics — a group of artists as influenced by animation (particularly Miyazaki) as comics. While many of them have yet to make a huge mark in comics, a bunch of FLIGHT alumni have gone on to create significant comics — for instance, Vera Brosgal’s ANYA’S GHOST just came out this year; Kazu Kibuishi’s AMULET series continues to gain young readers, and Jake Parker has illustrated his own books in addition to a collaboration with Michael Chabon. The list goes on and on — Sonny Liew, Becky Cloonan, Hope Larson — most of the artists in FLIGHT are young, and they have years of work ahead of them.
FLIGHT #2 is, if anything, even more spectacular than the first book. Check out the contributors and previews below — it’s a stunning anthology of breathtaking art and optimistic stories, and one of the finest comics anthologies of the decade:
