Monte Beauchamp's annual darling of the graphic design and illustration world is back with its most spectacular collection of cutting-edge comics, illustration, and graphic design yet.

Blab!'s list of contributors past and present reads like a Who's Who of the contemporary visual art world, including Mark Ryden, Chris Ware, Gary Panter, Joe Coleman, and many more. Blab! is edited and designed by five-time New York Festival of Advertising award-winner Monte Beauchamp, whose work has appeared in Print, Graphis, Communication Arts and American Illustration. Under his guidance, Blab! has grown from a digest-sized black-and-white fanzine he began over 10 years ago to an annual coffee-table showcase event of impeccable production values and master craftsmanship, an objet d'art that has become a standard-bearer in the world of professional graphic arts.

2001's Vol. 12 features stunning front and back covers by Christian Northeast, as well as color stories by Richard Sala, the Clayton Brothers, Northeast, Peter Kuper, Peter Hoey, Lou Brooks, Fred Stonehouse, and children's book illustrator Mike Bartolas, appearing in Blab! for the first time. Blab! stalwarts Gary Baseman, Drew Friedman, Spain, Blanquet, and Walter Minus are also back, along with Blab! newcomer and Devo frontman Mark Mothersbaugh, who contributes a four-page color story, and several others.

About the Author:

Monte Beauchamp edited The Life & Times of R. Crumb from St. Martin's Press, and the popular Blab! series. His work has appeared in Print, Communication Arts, American Illustration, and the New York Festival's Annual of Advertising. He lives in Chicago, IL.

From Booklist:

The cutting-edge graphic-arts anthology Blab has come a long way from its humble origins a decade ago as a black-and-white fanzine devoted to underground comics. The typically lavish Blab 12 presents a mixture of cutting-edge artiness and relatively traditional comics stories. New-to-Blab talents include children's book illustrator Michael Bartolas, who offers a moderately warped illustrated poem, and Devo frontman Mark Mothersbaugh, whose contribution is visually compelling but ultimately indecipherable, not to mention calling for a mature-readers advisory, as do much of the volume's other contents. The collection's occasional pretentiousness is somewhat leavened by the retro-cartoon imagery many artists, notably Lou Brooks and Peter Hoey, employ. More conventional are comics stories by Spain Rodriguez, Doug Allen, and Peter Kuper, who offers a tribute to Winsor McCay's classic, "Dreams of a Rarebit Fiend." Editor Beauchamp presents another selection of vintage German postcards depicting Krumpus, a Satanic anti-Santa who punishes wicked children. As always, the intermittent prose pieces are the weakest parts of the package. Appropriate, if not essential, for fine art and graphic novel collections. Gordon Flagg
