The fifth volume of Mome includes the following: Tim Hensley (Weird Tales of the Ramones) returns for the first time since the third volume with the first installments of his ongoing story of teen millionaire Wally Gropius, who will be disinherited unless he marries the saddest girl on earth; Eisner Award nominee Zak Sally (Recidivist) makes his Fantagraphics debut with "Two Idiot Brothers"; Martin Cendreda depicts a mostly wordless, surreal adventure starring a peculiar musician who emerges from the sewer; another Mome debut, the tale of "3 Legged Myrna and Her 2 Lovers," from Robert Goodin; Kurt Wolfgang delivers "Nothing Eve," a story about the day before the end of the world; 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 provided, spending far too much time watching a cartoon called "Mr. Dangerous"; Andrice Arp (Hi-Horse) contributes another retelling of ancient Japanese fairy tales in a lovely two-color format. The issue also features an interview with Anrice Arp, conducted by Gary Groth, and new work by Anders Nilsen (in full-color), Jeffrey Brown (of Clumsy, Big Head!, and McSweeney's fame), Gabrielle Bell (Scheherazade), and Sophie Crumb (Belly Button Comix). Mome is quickly earning a reputation as the premier literary anthology in comics. Think of something like The Believer or Granta — especially in regard to iconic design, format, and content — but with comics.
