Within the comics community, Flight is something special. It’s the equivalent of the undeniable classic album or brilliant film. It’s something that draws from all corners of the medium and unites some of the best talents of each in one place, and it’s adored both critically and by graphic fiction audiences. And its gradual accrual of fame and respect has almost made the anthology series eclipse the material that it compiles.
