From Publishers Weekly

Starred Review. With truly stellar art from masters of the field, this fantasy anthology is a must for comics connoisseurs and a delight to readers who like pretty stories. Fanciful tales of children, monsters, fairy-filled forests and imagined worlds create an enchanted escape. Some of the stories are entirely wordless, while others are told from a child''s point of view. Tony Cliff''s "Old Oak Trees," recounts how the author''s grandmother found a sort of "Wind in the Willows" gang of talking animals who live and love and play cricket in the local woods. Ben Hatke''s "The Edge" follows two brothers who find out who really lives at the edge of the world. Kean Soo''s almost heartbreakingly winning "Jellaby" is an account of a girl and a monster at a tea party. Multiple Academy Award–nominee Bill Plympton tells the story of "The Cloud," a little puff of vapor who just wants to float into representational shapes, but is squelched by its elders. Editor Kibuishi''s contribution is also charmingly drawn but far from lighthearted; it details what happens when boys playing soldiers turn into men. Flight mixes the influences of comics, animation and classic children''s illustration into a timeless fantasy. (June)

From Booklist

The third sumptuously produced Flight anthology showcases some two-dozen talented cartoonists, most of whom usually work in Web comics and animation. Most are young, although as in Flight volumes 1 (2004) and 2 (2005), a few veterans, notably animator Bill Plympton, appear--and prove even younger at heart. Several have illustrated children''s books, others design video games, and the preponderance of their stories have young protagonists (often saving their elders through personal bravery) or feature elements that kids like, such as monsters and anthropomorphized "funny animals." The high quality of the contributions is impressively consistent, yet four deserve special mention: animator Michael Gagne''s tale of a heroic young fox who defies a fearsome, subterranean beast; Johane Matte''s hilariously kinetic depiction of a cat getting his comeuppance after terrorizing various birds; Israel Sanchez''s account of a mischievous baby dragon''s "Saturday"; and Phil Craven''s saga of a youngster who saves a monster from hunters. That those standouts are all wordless or nearly so underlines the emphasis on the visual that is Flight''s most notable strength. Gordon Flagg

While I enjoyed this collection, it doesn''t have as much depth as Flight #2. The imagery in general doesn''t take you to a unique universe like really great comics should. Some of the writing is quite mundane which makes this collection seem like second string work. However, in a field ironically devoid of real creativity the stories are still some of the best to be seen. Perhaps the amazing level of Flight 2 was just too hard to sustain. Despite the general, everyday, autobiographical nature of many of these stories there are still enough gems that create their own unique world that I recommend this book to all serious admirers of the comic genre.

Bought this mostly for the Ben Hatke story "The Edge of the World" which I found enjoyable both to look at and to read. Ben has a very laid back style both to his art and to his story telling that veils the deeper meanings in the story until you are too far in to turn back and in fact don''t want to turn back.

The other stories are a mixed bag. The styles are diverse so you''re bound to find something you like to look at but at the same time some you don''t. The story and writing quality is also diverse from serviceable to quite enjoyable and surprising. I''ll definitely look into the other volumes of this series though it will help my decision if they include a story by Hatke.

I was first attracted to Flight Vol. 1 because of the story by Kazu Kibuishi, who had done the very entertaining comic Daisy Kutter. As I began to read Vol. 1 I was astounded by the quality of each succeeding story. Most were terrific and even the few could be considered to be "clunkers" were actually interesting experiments that only partially failed for some reason or another. Amazingly enough Flights 2 and 3 were even better. I swear that there''s not a bad story in the lot and I''m sure that the upcoming Flight 4 will continue this high level of quality. Cudos to Erik (Savage Dragon) Larsen for using his position as Image Comics publisher to get the first two entries published.

I initially preordered Flight 3 to read Reagan Lodge''s comic "Tea" but instead I was treated to so much more. The 340 glossy pages of artwork in this collection are absolutely incredible and come in many styles that are sure to please the eyes. All 26 stories are extremely entertaining and imaginative (ranging from comedic to dramatic), and you''ll find yourself reading these strips over and over after devouring the book (everytime I read this book I just can''t stop grinning). Created by artists ranging from professionals who work for big companies like Dreamworks to skilled individuals new to Flight, this book will definitely captivate you with its stunning quality and adventure-themed stories. My personal favorites are "Underworld" by Michel Gagné, "Old Oak Trees" by Tony Cliff, "The Cloud" by Bill Plympton (one of the cutest stories I''ve ever come across), and of course Reagan Lodge''s "Tea." But don''t get me wrong, they are ALL superb.

Now I''m on a rampage to buy the previous two volumes of Flight.

The Flight comic books are by far my favorite comic books on my bookshelf. The stories have a universal appeal, even to people who wouldn''t usually be interested in the medium, and the artwork is absolutely top-notch. Flight Vol. 3 continues the series admirably with even more wonderful storytelling. It''s absolutely overflowing with creativity.

Dirigée par l''auteur de comics américain Kazu Kibuishi, la collection "Flight" donne à admirer dans d''épaisses miscellanées réalisées avec grand soin, de courtes histoires proposées par des artistes internationaux plus ou moins connus de l''animation ou de la BD. Ce 3è volume ne connaît aucune faiblesse. Une grosse demi-douzaine de ses artistes était déjà présente dans l''un et/ou l''autre des deux précédents volumes et l''amalgame avec les nouveaux se fait très bien. Beaucoup des artistes adoptent un dessin de style "livre pour enfants" mais avec des scenarii comprenant souvent un "twist" tragique. Outre Kibuishi lui-même, les Canadiens Tony Cliff, Michel Gagné et Azad Injejikian (ce dernier obtient la palme du genre "look enfantin" / "scénario catastrophe" !), les Américains Neil Babra, Phil Craven, Rad Sechrist et Joey Weiser ainsi que les Français Bannister et Rodolphe Guenoden proposent ici les plus notables compositions.
