Mome is a quarterly anthology published by our friends over at Fantagraphics Books and it showcases the best new talent of this decade’s rising cartoon generation, alongside work from some of North America and Europe’s most respected creators. The Winter 2010 issue (Vol. 17) just recently came out and it is, predictably, really great. Less predictably, this same new issue includes a bunch of new full-page black-and-white work from Rick Froberg. Rick also sings/plays in the band Obits whose debut album I Blame You we released in March of 2009. He’s a great artist and is responsible for the cover art on I Blame You as well as a bunch of other stuff.
AND! This Sunday, January 10th, from 5pm to 7pm, Rick will be signing copies of the new issue of Mome at Bergen Street Comics in Brooklyn, NY! There are a bunch of other great artists signing that day as well, namely these folks: Sara Edward-Corbett, Michael Jada, Derek Van Gieson, and Nate Neal.
Bergen Street Comics is located at 470 Bergen Street in Brooklyn, NY.
