It was a long time coming, but Blammo #8 is worth the wait. This issue packs a lot into its 44 pages. It feels like there's not a square centimeter wasted. Opening the cover we start things off with a letters page and then an intro short, "Dog on Wheels.' "Expectations" follows; an eleven page slice of life drama with a twist. Things get crazy for the next for pages, in "Charles the Chicken Gets Tough!" A nine page funnies fable, "The Wolf and the Fox" leads into "She's Losing It," another fable of sorts... the violent sort. Which brings us to "Punks v. Lizards" a celebration of comic book violence, Van Sciver style. A double page downer, "Dive Into That Black River," is quickly followed by a 1/2-page guest comic by Matthew Thurber, a couple more mini "Dog on Wheels" strips and then the author roundup/plug page, and then the book closes on a meta-one-pager about Blammo readers (sort of). Yes, you get a lot for your money in Blammo.
