Blab! is a comics anthology edited by Monte Beauchamp. Though its primary focus is comics, it regularly features articles with non-comics illustration and graphic design. Early issues were published by Kitchen Sink Press. Issues #9–18 were published annually by Fantagraphics Books in a 120-page, 10" x 10" square format featuring both black-and-white and color art. 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 features new works by frequent contributors. Several solo books by individual Blab! contributors have been published with the subtitle "A Blab! Storybook." 2007's issue #18 was the final edition of Blab!; in 2010, Last Gasp published the first issue of the hardcover Blab World, which replaces Blab!
