Blab! by Beauchamp, Monte, ed.
Blab!
by Beauchamp, Monte, ed.
 
Special 25th anniversary comics issue!

BLAB! 18 delivers like nobody's business, with a decided focus on the comic arts. Underneath the covers by Ryan Heshka are a slew of all-new comic stories: Mark Zingarelli reveals the "Chick's Club Taboo"; Euro-comics sensation Paco Alcazar tells a Lynchian superhero tale called "Obedience"; Pete Kuper dishes on the bullies that dogged him as a youth in "Bully for You!"; "Sirens of Silence" is cover artist Heshka's wordless depiction of a post-global disaster existence; Sue Coe presents the true tale of Coney Island's "Topsy the Elephant"; underground legend Skip Williamson serves up "Daddy Was a Lady," a portrait of legendary drag queen Rae Burton; Steven Guarnaccia returns with the story behind the man who created Miniature Golf in "Moe Greene's Hole in One"; Kramer's Ergot phenoms Xavier and Helge prove once and for all that atheists are a product of cloned humans; Mark Frauenfelder of boingboing.com fame contributes the comic strip, "Juicemaker's Dream."

This volume also features "Mr. Foney's Funnies," a feature on the bubble-gum card set that set the stage in 1960 for Topps' million dollar mega-hit, Wacky Packages. Plus: Baseman, Biskup, Shag, Staake, Hagelberg, Spain, and much more!

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. Most of BLAB!'s contributors through the years have gone on to huge success in the gallery world (Chris Ware, Camille Rose Garcia, Joe Coleman, Gary Baseman, etc.) and the current volume sharpens BLAB!'s cutting-edge like never before.

BLAB! is conceived, edited, and designed by five-time New York Festival of Advertising award-winner Monte Beauchamp.
