The graphic novel anthology that solidified the stature of the FLIGHT series as one of the most thoughtful, beautifully rendered works in the field. "Last year, the first volume ofFlightintroduced a squadron of talented young cartoonists whose anime/animation influence struck a fresh note among jaded comics readers. This edition shows substantial growth while introducing some veterans, such as Jeff Smith (Bone) and Doug TenNapel (Creature Tech)...The sheer force of creative energy on display is impressive." --Publishers WeeklyforFlight, Volume Two(starred review) "The first Flight anthology was one of those universally-beloved comics, and the second volume is maybe a little bit better." --The Fourth RailforFlight, Volume Two "The quality is simply outstanding.

About the author (2011)

Kazu Kibuishi was 24 years old and working full-time in the animation industry when he began developing the idea of doing Flight. He began contacting his friends in the animation, comics, and graphic novel world to see if they would want to join the project. He now works from his home studio in Pasadena, California, creating and promoting Flight and his popular young adult comic Daisy Kutter, which was nominated as an American Library Association Best Book for Young Adults--the only graphic novel on the list in 2005.
