Similar to the previous seven books (Volumes 1-6 plus Flight Explorer, Volume 1 ) of this extraordinary anthology series, the 16 stories in Flight Volume Seven offer creators from around world employing a variety of genres: fantasy, science fiction, and slice-of-life ranging from serious to whimsical. While not as impressive as the previous volume, which I included among the Nexus Graphica Top Ten for 2009, most of the always beautiful stories rise far above others in the medium. Justin Gerard's anthropomorphic tale "Live Bait" relates the interesting search for a swampland killer. J.P. Ahonen's unemployed ninja returns in the amusing "Kenneth Shuri and the Big Sweep." "Premium Cargo," magnificently envisioned by Kostas Kiriakakis, recounts the emotional final days of an airship captain with his winged foster son. Kate and Steven Shanahan rely on over the top shenanigans for the humorous "Fairy Market." The lovable monster Jellaby delivers some sage wisdom in Kean Soo's "Guardian Angel." As with the earlier volumes, Flight Volume Seven deserves a place in any finer collection.
