Blammo - it's good
Written by Mike Baehr | Filed under Noah Van Sciver 10 Jul 2010 9:31 AM

Blammo 6 - Noah Van Sciver

Thanks to Mome and Comics Journal contributor Noah Van Sciver for sending me the new issue of his self-published comic Blammo after I half-jokingly entreated him to. I'm happy to report that it's a real good read! There's something for everyone: an excellent character study of a juggalo loser; heartfelt self-deprecating autobio stuff; weirdo funny-animals; ultraviolent action pitting punk rockers vs. giant lizards; and the proverbial much more. Noah's artwork is appealingly sketchy and hits all the right notes. If you have a hankering for the golden age of alternative comics and the one-person-anthology periodical, Blammo will hit the spot.
