Flight 2

Rodolphe Guenoden

FLIGHT 2 debuts this weekend at the Alternative Press Expo (APE) in San Francisco. FLIGHT is, in short, one of the most original and visually satisfying comic anthologies being published today. It’s the type of comic that makes me excited about making a trip to the comic book shop, which is indeed a rare occurence for me nowadays. There’s a lengthy preview for the second volume posted HERE. The book has plenty of contributions from animation folk including Michel Gagné, Doug TenNapel, Ovi Nedelcu, Ryan Sias and Justin Ridge. FLIGHT editor Kazu Kibuishi, who I had the pleasure of meeting a couple months back, also has a background in animation. In fact, he left animation last year to focus purely on comic book work. He told an interviewer recently, “Working in animation, I felt I was being stretched a little too thin on multiple aspects of 3D production… My love was not in the technical aspects of production, but in the writing and storytelling aspect of it all.” Now with FLIGHT, Kazu has created a wonderful outlet where all types of great artists have the opportunity to tell great stories.
