The ultra-licious graphic-novel-style comics magazine, and the preeminent anthology of comics, painting, and the illustration arts. BLAB! is an annual coffee-table showcase of fine art, illustration, and comix, and a gold-standard in the work of the professional visual arts. This volume has a cover by Jonathan Rosen; the BLAB! debut of popular artist Shag; a full-color tribute to Bazooka Joe; an exploration of the destruction of New Orleans and the Gulf Coast by angry gods of wind and water against a backdrop of war; plus work by Sue Coe and Judith Brody, Peter Kuper, Tim Biskup, Gary Baseman, Spain, Mats!, Greg Clarke, Drew Friedman, Mark Landman, Lou Brooks, Peter and Maria Hoey, Fred Stonehouse, Marc Rosenthal, Sergio Ruzzier, and more. Mostly color, some b&w.
