      (2.5) I've read another short story collection put together by Kazu Kibuishi that I loved, so I kind of went into this one hoping that I'd like it just as much, but that wasn't really the case. These stories just didn't really have the wow-factor that I was looking for. I did enjoy the variety of art styles, but I really only enjoyed four of the stories.

    2. Dov Zeller on said:

      This is a collection of short sequential art stories, all loosely based on, in some way. or at least brushing their feathers against the topic of flight. While I appreciated many of the stories and fragments, I found it hard to stay attentive to the book as a whole. Though there is some thematic stuff holding these many disparate pieces together, well, I'm not sure the concept works for me. Maybe because I was expecting a series more along the lines of Amulet. Some of the stories I couldn't acce [...]

      Out of all the volumes, I have to say that the first volume was the most interesting to me simply because this was an anthology where the majority of the artists are females drawing in styles that aren't typically noticed in the Superhero, male, and floppy format dominated American comics industry. These are fellow artists in my age group who I've seen online and at conventions -- I wanted this volume in support of them and their work. I applaud them just for the very existence of this book-- an [...]

      Started this graphic novel anthology a few weeks ago. Glad to have finally finished it. Giving this collection of graphic short stories a 3 star because not all of them were good. Some were boring, strange or just too confusing. I'll share my favorites below.My favorite short story from this collection was 'Maiden and the River Spirit'. This is a fable that of course has a moral. What I loved about it is there is a tiny twist at the end that made me giggle. It starts off as your typical fable. B [...]

      First you need to know that while I'm a huge fan of the graphic novel, I am neither a fan of short stories nor anthologies, and that is what this book is. A collection of graphic stories. I did not know that going in. Mea culpa. The stories are all about flight in one way or another, and while I quite liked the art, many of the stories in this collection were really weak. That being said, there is wide variety of stories and artistic styles, and for that reason alone it might make sense to grab [...]

      Lovely anthology from assorted graphic novelists, most of which centered their craft around the theme of flight. I was pleasantly surprised to see several female writers/illustrators in the mix!The art was sublime in its variety and richness. The stories could use a little work, but at least they did not distract.Occasionally I am asked to speak in class before students begin a unit on Graphic Novels; this is a perfect book to start the conversation.

      One day, when I was ten or so, alone in the dinnertime quiet of our suburban cul-de-sac, I reclined in the seat of an upturned Big Wheel and let my gaze wander upwards. My head lay on the warm pavement, which hummed with the day's dissipating heat and, far below, the slow engine of the turning earth. Staring past the handlebars, I watched as the pane of blue ahead, just a dusty ceiling an hour ago, began to slowly sink away, giving way to a distance I'd considered but never quite conceived. I fe [...]

      Anthologies are difficult to review. Do I rate by the best of the collection or the worst? Luckily, Flight solves my problem by having almost uniformly good and, more to the point of the collection, beautifully illustrated stories. There's a wide variety here. The thread that binds them together is the concept of flight, very very loosely defined. So in the same collection, we have adventures aboard an airship and reflections on faith. There's also a huge range of art styles, including collage-i [...]

    9. Andrew on said:

      Argh. I hate these anthologies that have a guiding story topic. I mean, how about just selecting great comics? This one all of the stories in some way related to flight. And all of the creators were young (at the time). McCloud in an afterword makes a point of stating the average age was 24 and each creator biography states their age. The flight idea is dumb, but I guess the idea of anthologizing and giving young artists a wider audience is nice. I don't feel compelled to seek out any of their w [...]

      A graphic novel anthology. Very odd and unfortunately, not very enjoyable. Most of the stories left me extremely confused. I liked the art of some but didn't like them on others and found some to be way too crowded and busy. Of the whole anthology, I probably only really enjoyed three, maybe four, stories.

    11. Magila on said:

      3.5I was crushed by my lack of overall love for this graphic novel. It wasn't bad. However, I wasn't a fan of every one of the comics. I probably was a big fan of about a third, enjoyed a third ok, and wouldn't have minded a third being edited out. So, I liked this, but I didn't love it. As a compilation, it's worth picking up. I was exposed to three new artists that I really enjoyed, and found some of their art I plan to check out in other comics. So give this volume a shot, but don't bump it t [...]

      In 2017, Kazu Kibuishi's "Flight" anthology is a staple in school libraries and bookstores everywhere. When it was published way back in 2004, though, it wasn't such a sure bet. Compiling short comics on the theme of flight by a diverse collection of mostly (at the time) unknown talents - some of whom would go on to huge success, like Vera Brosgol, Hope Larson, Derek Kirk Kim, and Kibuishi himself - "Flight" was a gamble that mostly paid off. Like any anthology, there are highs and lows but this [...]

    13. Robbie on said:

      I am considerably new to the idea of graphic novels, although I have always loved the concept ever since I read the "Bone" series way back when (I want to read it again, just for grins). Seeing 'Flight' on StumbleUpon, I was absolutely intrigued at the idea of an anthology of different artists, and as such, asked for Volume One for Christmas, and received.Once again, because I am relatively new but already know that I like them, this was something fantastic to me. I loved the diversity of the di [...]

      read as 3.5 stars.What do you know? sometimes you CAN judge a book by its cover. I was drawn to this series by the amazing cover art (and now that I've finished volume 1, I'm glad that I picked up volume 2 at the same time.).Basically a graphic novel anthology of short stories that are all somehow related to flight of one sort or another. Some authors took the idea very literal while others were more playful. I have to say there isn't a stinker in the bunch. I enjoyed every story in the collecti [...]

    15. Heidi Cullinan on said:

      My one-word review of this book would have to be "charming." I picked it up because I kept seeing it on the shelf at the library, and the cover looked so beautiful I finally had to give in. And the cover sold the book accurately, because the book is beautiful, enchanting, and deceptively easy to slide into. Essentially these are short stories told in graphic form: a few have no words at all or very, very few. The styles of art vary between pieces, sometimes radically. The types of stories are al [...]

    16. Sonja P. on said:

      This is an anthology about flight that allowed people to explore this new medium and to explore different styles. I really loved some of the art and stories, and some of them, I didn't care for so much. However, one of the things that makes this so interesting is that there are a lot of different voices here. In graphic novels, most of the voices tend to be white males. This one is filled with people of different perspectives, and the art and stories reflect that, which is important. The graphic [...]

    17. Pamela on said:

      Somehow I managed to read vol. 2 before vol. 1 (although I don't think it matters that much--there are some continuing story arcs that I noticed, however). I liked this one less than vol. 2--a large number of the stories were just completely incomprehensible to me. I mean, just plain weird stuff. And I generally like weird. Some of them--well, I wondered what they had to do with flight (either real or metaphysical).However, I like the idea of this and how the work of very different artists creat [...]

    18. Austin on said:

      this was a great book i enjoyed it a lot. this book has multiple stories in it so if you dont like a story you can go to the next one. i think this book was cool because all the stories were all about flying or in the air.i gave it a 4 star rateing because it was a good book and it kept my intrest throughout the whole book. i would reccemend this book to anybody who like to read a book with a lot of stories in it

    19. Blake on said:

      As always, the "Flight" series, especially this first one, is very entertaining and well drawn. The women artist in this, which is most every story, seem to show more feeling and dynamic quality in their art in this issue than the later issues to follow. Love the coloring most of all, and the cover is very epic and amazing.

    20. Julia França on said:

      I am disappointed. There were many stories, but most too short or weird for me to get the idea behind it or even care. I appreciate the variety of the art, but the content should be more than that. I'm sad about it, my last graphic novel of the year had to be a good one. Well, I guess I still have time for a new try.

    21. Chris on said:

      This is a good book, for sure, it's just too bad I've read these out of order. Not for continuity's sake, no, just that the newer volumes have been better--and bigger. However, this is still a great book full of fantastic art and fun stories. Give it a looksee. If you start here, it only gets better as the volumes progress.

    22. Cláudia on said:

      This first volume of Flight is a great collection of short metaphors about life, love, loss and, of course, flying.The art collection is absolutely gorgeous! A must-read for everyone who enjoys beauty in their lives.

    23. Krystle on said:

      Really neat! Takes a look at graphic novel illustrations a different way as well as storytelling. Some of the stories are obviously better than the others but they're all refreshing to read and this is a great gem of graphic novel anthologies.

    24. Lupe Dominguez on said:

      I'm current on both an Anthology and graphic novel kick. This suited my needs perfectly. Beautiful illustrations and story telling, Kibuishi did a great job bringing all these comic writers together in one place. I'm going to continue this series. I'm sure it will be as beautiful.

    25. Bella on said:

      Awesome artwork in here! I liked some of the stories better than others. And some were just too confusing but overall a very nice graphic novel. Now I want the rest of the volumes!

    26. Noura on said:

      Plot wise i'll give this 3 but the collection of art work was gorgeous which is why i ended up rating it a 4.

    27. Melki on said:

      Though the art work, without exception, is absolutely breathtaking, none of the stories were very strong or memorable.

    28. Ha Li on said:

      a beautiful collection of artistic stories! can't wait to experience other volumes.

    29. Molly on said:

      Some of the stories were absolutely perfect. PERFECT. Love them so much. Others, not so much. Eh. But it evened out, so I would definitely recommend it! Can't wait to read Vol. 2!

    30. Becky B on said:

      Since this is such a mixed bag of graphic novel short stories, I’ll do summaries and ratings for each short story individually. I will say this for the mix as a whole, I’m not sure who the intended audience of this book is supposed to be. Some of the stories are done in little kid style animation and have accompanying simple plot lines aimed at that age group, and then others are most definitely adult with content inappropriate for kids. I’ve read the Box and Island compilations Kibuishi p [...]
