  • Before making a single edit, Tropedia EXPECTS our site policy and manual of style to be followed. Failure to do so may result in deletion of contributions and blocks of users who refuse to learn to do so. Our policies can be reviewed here.
  • All images MUST now have proper attribution, those who neglect to assign at least the "fair use" licensing to an image may have it deleted. All new pages should use the preloadable templates feature on the edit page to add the appropriate basic page markup. Pages that don't do this will be subject to deletion, with or without explanation.
  • All new trope pages will be made with the "Trope Workshop" found on the "Troper Tools" menu and worked on until they have at least three examples. The Trope workshop specific templates can then be removed and it will be regarded as a regular trope page after being moved to the Main namespace. THIS SHOULD BE WORKING NOW, REPORT ANY ISSUES TO Janna2000, SelfCloak or RRabbit42. DON'T MAKE PAGES MANUALLY UNLESS A TEMPLATE IS BROKEN, AND REPORT IT THAT IS THE CASE. PAGES WILL BE DELETED OTHERWISE IF THEY ARE MISSING BASIC MARKUP.

Flight is a series of episodic comics, written and drawn by a variety of artists and edited by Kazu Kibushi (author of Amulet). They range from lighthearted to deep, simplistic to vivid, and bizarre to moderately sane. Known for its inventive compilation of different styles, Flight has been well-recieved by critics and readers alike. It's an ongoing series with the 7th volume just released.


This series provides examples of:

  • An Aesop: Amy Kim Ganter's "Food from the Sea:" pointless competition is bad, 'mmkay?
  • Bilingual Dialogue: Occasionally, like Richard Pose's story "Béisbol."
  • Crowning Moment of Heartwarming: Tons; Kean Soo's "Jellaby" series is particularly fond of them.
  • Mood Whiplash: Sweet, lighthearted cartoons can be placed right next to bloody Speculative Fiction and down-to-Earth drama.
  • Spoof Aesop: "The Maiden and the River Spirit" by Derek Kirk Kim directly references the eponymous fairytale, then completely subverts it.
  • Tear Jerker: All over the place, such as in "Cellmates" and "Premium Cargo."
    • "Polaris" (Vol.3, Pg. 182) GOOD GOD POLARIS.
