  • Mome Vol. 5


The 5th volume of MOME includes: - Tim Hensley (Weird Tales Of The Ramones) returns for the first time since the 3rd volume with the first installment of his first book-length story, titled GROPIUS, which tells the story of teen millionaire Wally Gropius, who will be disinherited unless he marries the saddest girl on the earth - Martin Cendreda depicts a mostly wordless, surreal adventure starring 3 peculiar musicians, and what happens when they get together to make music - Kurt Wolfgang delivers 'Nothing Eve', a story about the day before the end of the world - David Heatley (Deadpan, McSweeney's) contributes several short 'portrait comics' - Paul Hornschemeier continues 'Life With Mr. Dangerous,' a full-color narrative about a young woman who struggles to define a life outside of the example her mother provides, spending far too much time watching a cartoon called 'Mr. Dangerous' - The MOME debut of Zak Sally (The Recidivist), who tells the story of two idiot brothers - Andrice Arp (Hi-Horse) contributes another retelling of ancient Japanese fairy tales in a lovely 2-color format. This volume also features an interview with Andrice Arp, new work by Anders Nilson (in full-color), Jeffrey Brown (Clumsy), Gabrielle Bell, Jonathan Bennnett, and Sophie Crumb.
