The fifth volume of Mome includes the following: Tim Hensley (Weird Tales of the Ramones) returns for the first time since the third volume with the first-installment of his first book-length story, titled "Gropius," which tells the story of teen millionaire Wally Gropius, who will be disinherited unless he marries the saddest girl on earth; Martin Cendreda depicts a mostly wordless, surreal adventure starring three peculiar musicians, and what happens when they get together to make music; Kurt Wolfgang delivers "Nothing Eve.," a story about the day before the end of the world; David Heatley (Deadpan, McSweeney's) contributes several short "portrait comics"; Paul Hornschemeier continues "Life with Mr. Dangerous," a full-color narrative about a young woman who struggles to define a life outside of the example her mother provides, spending far too much time watching a cartoon called "Mr. Dangerous"; Andrice Arp (Hi-Horse) contributes another retelling of ancient Japanese fairy tales in a lovely two-color format. The issue also features an interview with Anrice Arp, conducted by Gary Groth, and new work by Anders Nilsen (in full-color), Jeffrey Brown (of Clumsy, Big Head!, and McSweeney's fame), Gabrielle Bell (Scheherazade), Jonathan Bennett (Esoteric Tales), and Sophie Crumb (Belly Button Comix).
