is a comics anthology
edited by Monte Beauchamp. Though its primary focus is comics, it regularly features non-comics illustration
and graphic design
work as well as some prose
articles. Early issues were published by Kitchen Sink Press
. Since issue 9 it has been published annually by Fantagraphics Books
in a 120-page, 10" x 10" square format in a mixture of full color and black-and-white.
In 2003 Chronicle Books published the book collection New & Used BLAB!. As the title suggests, one half of the book consists of selections from previous issues while the other half (bound dos-à-dos style) features new works by frequent contributors.
Several solo books by individual BLAB! contributors have been published with the subtitle "A BLAB! Storybook."
