Format: Comic
I have purchased all of the flight series, the cover mislead me into thinking this was one passage on the meaning of flight. It is not, it is a collection of weirdly imaginative stories - each of varying styles and quality. (very varying) I particularly love the wordless ones with the fox!
Not all the work is of the quality of the cover art, but the ideas and concepts behind them are both interesting and imaginative, well worth looking at.
You would like this book if you are/were a day dreamer or an artist or comic book fan. It doesn't disappoint. I like them and I'm 27, so does my daughter who is 6!

Format: Paperback
Whether they are professional cartoonists, Pixar animators or high school students, the 21 contributors to Flight are some of the best and brightest talents comics has to offer. United by the titular theme, these short stories range from Miyazaki-like cartoon flights of fancy to wonderful phantasmagorias mixing collages and line drawing to breathtaking effect.
I think it would be only fair to warn the casual customer that buying this book could be potentially dangerous and damaging both to your wallet and your free time. But maybe you'll find, like I did, that those perils are fair trade-offs for the wild ride that awaits you within the pages of this most exhilarating of comics anthologies. So what if the fully formed talents of the Flight creators will instantly suck you into buying more of their books, subscribe to their webcomics and form religions praising their names? It's worth it; stories and visual spectacles like these are always worth it.
And there's a flying whale! Can't beat the flying whale.

Format: Comic
Flight is not one book but a collection of short stories in the comic book medium.
Now while these writers are (or in the case of its creator and editor Kazu kibushi were) unknowns there is nothing remotely amateur about these, Flight is a treasure chest of imagination almost overflowing with ideas. in the words of Scott McCloud (world renowned comic book expert) these are writes who have learned from their idles and moved one.
And they certainly have learned! on display are some of the cleverest uses of the comic medium ever, some things so subtle that you wouldn't ever know that they were there others using the medium in ways un imagined.
the range of the stories is greater that you would think, they range high adventure to poignant recollection to modern gothic tragedy to visual poetry, but still they all flow together not just seamlessly, but in such a way that they enhance each other.
it is worth reading these stories slowly or re-reading them as you won't take in everything fist time round, Kean Soo's Migrations in particular is well worth analysing it is a great slice of modern art with feeling.
Many of the stories on display have great art but the real point is that comics should be stories told though art, if you are tired of in some graphic novels you seem to have the story parts and the visual art parts Flight will be a welcome relief.
while many of the stories contain flight in some way shape or form that is not what the book is about, the book is so named because it is about the idea of creative flight, and this is I would say the most artistically free book written of a long time, as for breaking barriers down? well this book doesn't need to. It fly's straight over them!
A true heartfelt work of art

Format: Comic Verified Purchase
At first upon looking at the cover I was expecting it to be just one story with a steampunk fantasy theme to it. Yet I was surprised after reading from other reviews that the book was not one, but instead featured a series of alternate stories by different artists. Each with a different story theme (e.g. Scifi, fantasy, drama...) and each with the artist's own artwork style.

After a short while I decided to give the first volume a try, and to be honest although few of the stories weren't the sort of thing I enjoy, the rest I feel were fun to read. And I do feel this first volume was worth the money spent.

The stories although short are nicely written and with their own unique style of artwork dose make this one book unique. So much so that I intend to give the second volume a try.

I will be frank though, my only disappointment was it did not feature a story that went with the cover.

If you're thinking of buying this to enjoy more of Kazu's work then you will be disappointed.I feel that I was tricked into buying because it was marketed using Kazu's name.There are one and a half stories by Kazu.A more accurate description would be 'a collection of comic art from various artists including Kazu 'By all means add it to your wish list and get someone else to buy it for you!Put YOUR money towards the Amulet series.Much more worth it in my opinion.
