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. If you need an example of the continued relevance of comics as a medium, there’s Flight.  If you want to discuss comics and their place in literature, there’s Flight. If you want to see what’s happening in the contemporary world of art and illustration, there’s Flight. These artists have each added to the visual storytelling arena in spectacular fashion, while Flight itself has helped enrich the place that graphic novels have established in bridging the gap between comics and books.
