from The Mobtown Shank Review by Benn Ray
Blammo is one of my favorite comic series. And for the longest time, I couldn't tell if Van Sciver was a welcome throwback to now-lost era of '90s alterna-comix, or if he was the vanguard of a new comics movement, and I'm happy to report that Noah these days seems more like the latter. Blammo is an anthology-style comic - a collection of stories, some ongoing, some not, with an array of characters and themes and even tones. Noah's style is has a Crumbian neurotic line, a Baggesian rounded angle, and a lot of halftones, zipatone, and crosshatching. (I prefer the last two moreso than the halftones). If this was 1995, Blammo would reside in the same pantheon as Hate, Eightball, Optic Nerve, Peep Show, Dirty Plotte, etc. But it's not, it's now. And as a result, it exists at a level other cartoonists should aspire to achieve. (Posted on 1/31/12)
from The Mobtown Shank Review by Eric Allen Hatch
Blammo channels the great “indie” (ugh) “comix” (argh) of the 1990s. If you miss the wit and variety of Eightball, the unrelenting miserablism of Schizo, and the nakedly frank letters columns of both, Blammo is here for you. With each issue, Van Sciver has also refined his own style and voice, and this issue is both his most generous and his most creatively realized yet. (Posted on 1/31/12)
