The graphic novel anthology that solidified the stature of the FLIGHT series as one of the most thoughtful, beautifully rendered works in the field.
"Last year, the first volume of Flight introduced a squadron of talented young cartoonists whose anime/animation influence struck a fresh note among jaded comics readers. This edition shows substantial growth while introducing some veterans, such as Jeff Smith (Bone) and Doug TenNapel (Creature Tech)…The sheer force of creative energy on display is impressive." — Publishers Weekly for Flight, Volume Two (starred review)
"The first Flight anthology was one of those universally-beloved comics, and the second volume is maybe a little bit better." — The Fourth Rail for Flight, Volume Two
"The quality is simply outstanding. It’s probably safe to say that among its 432 pages, Flight has something to offer just about everyone." — Comixfan.com for Flight, Volume Two

Originally published by Image Comics in 2004, Flight, Volume One launched this graphic novel series with a resounding bang. Since then the Flight series has steadily increased in popularity–and now all of the Flight backlist will be coming to Villard!
Flight, Volume One received a great boost when graphic novel hero Scott McCloud praised the quality and artistry of the book in an afterward entitled THE YEAR COMICS TOOK FLIGHT. Little could readers know at the time how prophetic McCloud’s words would prove to be.
