Editorial Reviews

Whitney Matheson - USA Today
“Mome helps me stay on top of the coolest cartoonists in the industry.”
Roger Sabin - The Observer
“For fresh talent in comics, you have to go to the anthologies and there’s none better at the moment than Mome.”
David Berry - National Post
“The final edition of Mome leaves a vacuum that thus far has always managed to get filled — ...it will always be a shame to file something this sharply curated in the shelf. …[T]here’s a terrific streak of humour throughout… all adding up to an end that’s perfectly fitting, but no less unfortunate.”
Noel Murray - The A.V. Club
“Mome 22 concludes the run of one of alt-comics' longest-running and most essential anthologies. Like Weirdo before it, Mome bridged the gap between veteran cartoonists and the new breed.”
Charles Hatfield - The Panelists
“Over the course of six years and (just now) twenty-two issues, Mome has been a consistently ambitious and important anthology…”
Thurston Moore and Byron Coley - ARTHUR Magazine
“Mome may be the best contemporary survey of the current graphic scene… If you have peepers, you should take ‘em out and use ‘em.”
Librarything.com
“The premier journal of innovative comic art currently being published.”
Sean T. Collins - The Comics Journal
“…[I]ndependent of any scene or wave or vibe or goal beyond publishing a lot of interesting short new comics, Mome soldiered on. That’s the hill it died on, and this is a fine flag to plant on its grave.”
