Blammo #4

Blammo #4

Product Review (submitted on February 4, 2012):
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.
