<<• edited by Eric Reynolds •>> We are sad to announce that this is the penultimate issue of MOME. Highlights this time around must start off with a new Tom Kaczynski tale, "The Cozy Apocalypse." Also notable are a full-color two-pager by Lilli Carré, a nifty-in-a-very-dark-way three-pager by Jon Adams, the highly Hankiewicz-esque cover story by Sara Edward-Corbett, along with new work by Steve Weissman, Kurt Wolfgang, Josh Simmons (2!), T. Edward Bak, Nicolas Mahler, Dash Shaw, Sergio Ponchione, Nate Neal, Nick Thorburn and Michael Jada & Derek Van Gieson. Savor these tales.
A rare blend of whimsy and sadness, Lone Racer is a story of fast cars, faster women, and one man's ride from first to worst and back again. 98 pages
"The magic in Nicolas Mahler’s work does not exist in its impeccable writing, or in its elegant drawings, but in the strange alchemy between the two." -- Lewis Trondheim
Top Shelf sez: "Austrian cartoonist Nicolas Mahler is famous for his silent and sophisticated comics. Perfect for fans of Edward Gorey, this volume includes humorous comics stories featuring the classic archetypes of the mummy, vampire, wolfman, Frankenstein, and, of course, Van Helsing. These short stories are intriguing, humorous and incredibly illustrated in a whimsical, yet weighted, sketchy style. This first American compilation will be sure to create an instant fan base for Nicolas' work." -- 112 pages
