Blab! Storybooks

Blab! Storybooks

The Blab! Storybooks, or "Picto-Novelettes," comprise a series of graphic novels showcasing artists from Monte Beauchamp's award-winning Blab! anthology presented in a faux-children's book format, though aimed squarely at grownups and young adults.

"The Blab! Storybook series caters to a strain of bizarre illustrated literature that eschews the formats of accepted genres (art book, comic book, graphic novel, children's book) and explores new, hybridized forms. Each of these books, in its own way, establishes the complete unpredictability of any publication in the series." –— The Believer
