    BLAB! No. 6 (1991). Monte Beauchamp's acclaimed anthology has been setting the pace for comix and offbeat graphics more than a decade. The 6th issue is a 128-page squarebound digest featuring top creators dealing overtly or looosely with the theme of alcohol:

    Who were the heaviest drinking cartoonists of all time? Dan Clowes (Ghost World and Eightball) teams up with Blab! editor Monte Beauchamp to depict a blurry line-up of legendary "Alcoholic Cartoonists." Drawing board drunks include Bob Wood (Crime Does Not Pay), whose eleven-day binge led to a murder bloodier than those in his violent comic books; Bill Everett, creator of Sub-Mariner; Graham Ingels (E.C. horror artist); Wally Wood (MAD and E.C. science fiction artist extraordinare), who ultimately took his own life; and underground cartoonist Roger Brand (Young Lust, Banzai and Insect Fear).

    Richard Sala contributed the front cover and a13-page mystery story, "Where is Christine Brooder?"

    Joe Coleman illustrates the biography of Jack Black (not the comedic actor, but the criminal opium-addicted hobo). Seventeen pages.

    Skip Williamson, of Bijou Funnies fame, contributes a "Necropolis Keester" barfly story as well as his better known "Snappy Sammy Smoot."

    "Steven," the celebrated man-child by Doug Allen, is a notrorious drinker, as is his thirsty cactus. Fourteen pages of hard-drinking comics!

    Art professor and pioneer underground cartoonist Frank Stack (Jesus, American Splendor) relates "The Lying Ear," on the relationship of Vincent Van Gogh and Paul Gauguin in Arles.

    Spain Rodriguez offers a memoir, "Down at the Kitty Kat."

    Justin Green (Binky Brown) finishes BLAB! Vol. 6 with "Great Moments in Alcoholism."

    Other contributions by Mark Landman (Buzz), Josh Allan Friedman, Gary Leib, Mary Fleener (Twisted Sisters), Lloyd Dangle, Carol Sobocinski and others.

    Published by Kitchen Sink Press. NM/Mint condition. 5.5 x 8.5" (128 pages).

    First and only printing.
