The sixth anthology of short graphic novels, Flight Vol. 6 was a beautiful read. I found out about the series from a coworker who is well-versed in the graphic novel genre. Since all the books are anthologies, I did not feel the need to read the series in order. Furthermore, the sixth book was the only one available at my location, so it made my choice easy! For someone that has trouble reading graphic novels, this collection of short stories was perfect. The art styles varied greatly between selections, which made for an engaging read. Some of the stories were wordless, focusing on detailed art, while others had lots of dialogue. I went through a variety of emotions with every adventure, and my only disappointment was that I was unable to learn more about the characters. This was a great introduction to various authors' style (art, story and humor), which allowed me to find illustrators I want to learn more about. I am looking forward to reading the other books in this series! JCL currently has volumes 8, 6, 5 and 3 but you can access the rest of the series through InterLibrary Loan or suggest for purchase.
