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

Kazu Kibuishi was 24 years old and working full-time in the animation industry when he began developing the idea of doing Flight. He began contacting his friends in the animation, comics, and graphic novel world to see if they would want to join the project. Little did he know that it would draw him into comics full-time. He now works from his home studio in Pasadena, California, creating and promoting Flight and his popular young adult comic Daisy Kutter, which was nominated as an American Library Association Best Book for Young Adults -- the only graphic novel on the list in 2005.
