Lovin' Rockets

Fantagraphics has brought out a set of Love and Rockets! The recently reissued volumes are smaller than the old ones - which is a shame, since all the artwork is reduced and L & R was in an oversized format - but they are beautiful all the same.

There's also a boxed set of the first ten volumes of Mome, Fantagraphics' anthology of short comics, of a leftfield/underground/comix persuasion. I just read the Winter/Spring 2008 issue. It's not all to my taste, but there is plenty to stimulate.
