I love this

The second issue of Mome has just been translated into Spanish.

This image is from the first issue.
They made fonts of all our lettering.

There is something infinitely fascinating about seeing your own comics in a language you can’t really read.

Mome News


Mome 11 is now available, with some stuff by me in it. You can see a preview slide show on flickr. That cover is by Killoffer.

They are also selling sets of the first 10 issues, for anyone who is interested.

And the interview with me from volume 5 is online now. Kind of embarrassing in parts, but oh well.

OK, I just re-read it and it’s really embarrassing. But what can I do?
