from The Mobtown Shank Review by Eric Allen Hatch
Okay, so this is what everybody says in praising Blammo, but if you miss those glory days (or whatever) back in the ‘90s when a new issue of Eightball or Optic Nerve would come out every few months instead of every few decades, start following Noah Van Sciver’s work. The characters, technique, righteous anger, and self-deprecating humor of Blammo recall a young Daniel Clowes, but this isn’t derivative stuff – it’s scrappy, hungry, highly realized work with a strong personality all its own. Also note: Blammo #5, released in the first week of January, already shortlisted for my top 10 of ’10. (Posted on 2/4/12)
from The Mobtown Shank Review by Benn Ray
Noah van Sciver is a cartoonist out of time. And with a little luck, he may be the spearhead , the catalyst, the inspiration for a new wave of alternative comix funnybooks. Artistically, his style is like a raw Peter Bagge. Tone-wise, he has a great eye for satire and self-deprecation. In a medium chock full o' precious handmade craft-projects passing for comics, uninteresting and unoriginal naval gazing, and nonsensical child-like abstract scribble - Noah van Sciver's Blammo comes off as a much-needed cry of "enough." And he's prolific as hell too. With a little luck, Noah van Sciver will be the future of comics. (Posted on 2/4/12)
