Blab! #17

The 17th volume of the wonderful art and comics magazine, Blab!, is available from Fantagraphics.
200612071641This volume of BLAB! features a cover by Jonathan Rosen, and: the BLAB! debut of popular artist Shag!; a full-color tribute to Bazooka Joe; Sue Coe and Judith Brody’s “… And Not a Drop To Drink,” an exploration of the destruction of New Orleans and the Gulf Coast by angry gods of wind and water against a backdrop of war; Greg Clarke’s “The Pungent Gaul,” a surprisingly harrowing story of a frenchman who smuggles illegal cheeses from his homeland into the United States and sells them on the black market; Drew Friedman’s 4-pager “Old Jewish Comedians” selected from his new Blab! Storybook; Peter Kuper’s story of the various ways he’s almost died; more “Fetal Elvis” from Mark Landman; “Max Vesta, Matchbook Artist,” the true story of the art and life of the unsung and little known (except to a few collectors and connosieurs) master of the matchbook cover; Lou Brooks invites us into his “Garden of Tongue-listing Twimericks” — your mouth will never be the same; Peter and Maria Hoey’s “Out of Nowhere,” the story of Coleman Hawkins and Django Reinhart’s years in pre-WWII Paris; plus stories by Tim Biskup, Gary Baseman, Fred Stonehouse, Marc Rosenthal, Spain, Mats!, and Sergio Ruzzier.

My "Banana Eater" painting (on my homepage at amycrehore.com) is in this issue of "Blab!17" as well, plus many other works of art that are not listed here.

Also, we had an art show in Sept/Oct at CoproNason Gallery and you can still view the art on www.blabshow.com.

It's a great issue!

Love your blog! :)
