Founded by the Eisner-nominated cartoonist and writer Ronald Wimberly, LAAB is an experimental art magazine which serves as a platform for comics, critical discourse, and the radical imagination.
The second issue of the annual art tabloid on identity and visual culture, LAAB Magazine (LAAB numbering is non-sequential.) LAAB #4: This Was Your Life ! concerns themes of death and environmental devastation, horror, hauntology, necropolitics, and the anthropocene. We ask what it means to die, and what it means to live -- and what might have to die for a future to be born. Published in a 16x21" broadsheet newspaper format, it features bold and visionary comics, illustrations and essays by a diverse body of writers, illustrators and cartoonists both veteran and new, including Ben Passmore, Sarah Jaffe, Tanna Tucker, Emily Carroll, Scott Campbell, Richie Pope, and Many more.
