Flight is a comic book anthology series edited by Kazu Kibuishi, writer and artist of the Amulet series. Volume One is the first of eight books. Kibuishi's plan was to feature the work of young, innovative creators. While he didn't intend a theme, the series title definitely inspired the contributors as many of the works involve flight. There are 23 stories collected in this first installment.
The artwork is generally stunning, though for me the stories were just okay. None is very long and maybe that's the issue for me - not enough to latch on to. The highlights for me were "Paper and String" by Jen Wang, a story about two young women and a kite, and "The Bowl" by Clio Chiang, a tale about a fisherman who's turned into, you guessed it, a bowl. I especially appreciated the Northwest Native American art style employed for the latter story.
