Image Comics is one of the largest comic book publishers in the world. They made moves into online comics far ahead of the establishment publishers DC and Marvel. Image supports a legion of young professional and non-professional cartoonists. In 2004, they published their first anthology of these cartoonists’ creative efforts (Flight, Volume One). Volume Two continues the showcasing of young graphic talent. The tales told in these works span the entire spectrum of contemporary comic stylings from manga-influenced works to rough sketches to symbolic surreality to more traditional graphic novel flair. The tales vary in art style, length, and unfortunately, quality. Volume Two is less even than Volume One. For graphic novel/comic book fans only. [Note: For such fans, my favorite stories in Volume Two were “The Robot and the Sparrow”, “The Orange Grove”, and “The Ride”. My favorites from a visual perspective were "La Sonadora", "Icarus", and "Wilford's Stroll".]
