The bookstore I worked at got several Tabbo volumes in. The contents were a mixed bag. The Gaiman and Moore entries (Lost Girls!) the usual brilliant standard.

The related stories of some printers refusing to print Taboo based on the shocking story content was actually more interesting than the supposedly shocking stories themselves.

Overall, neat to get a chance to take a look at pieces of comic book history.

This was the first issue of an amazingly great comics magazine, something like semiannual, edited and published by Steve Bissette.
Its focus was horror, broadly drawn, a genre i only like in comics, only when well done. These were really well done.
Soon - I can't remember if it began in first issue or second - the serialization and original publication of From Hell by Alan Moore and Eddie Campbell began to appear, here, a chapter at a time.
Highly recommended.
