Some of my favorite cartoonists these days are coming out of the Flight anthology crew, and now Kazu Kibuishi has just announced a “kid’s” version of the book called FLIGHT EXPLORER. You can read an interview with Kazu about it at Newsarama. One of the cartoonists picked for the launch was our own Steve Hamaker, who will contribute one of his Fish 'n' Chips comics. Yesterday, on the private Flight forums, I saw Kazu’s first rough sketch for the EXPLORER cover, and it was hot. It was exactly the kind of cover that would have lured me in as a kid promising mystery, adventure and lots of characters. Meanwhile, Flight 4 is coming out July 10 from Villard.
The first two volumes were published by Image. Now Villard is republishing them. This is fairly old news, but Kazu redid the art for the first book’s cover and it looks beautiful. Here's another interview at Newsarama from about a month ago about F4. Below are the wrap around covers for FLIGHT 4 and the new FLIGHT 1.
FLIGHT 1 is now available! For more info on Flight, visit their webpage.
