Yo Gabba Gabba! Comic Book Time! (Volume 1) 
Art by Michael Allred / Colors by Han Allred
February 2011 (Released 16 Mar 2011) / Oni Press / 8 (of 132) pages / Hard Cover

Yo Gabba Gabba! Comic Book Time! is a great hard cover collection of stories featuring the work of Mike Allred, Jamie S. Rich, J. Bone, Evan Dorkin, plus many others. It’s based on the über cool children’s TV show Yo Gabba Gabba! Get a taste for the show here, you never know, you may get hooked too!

There are a few points that make this gem of work stand out in my mind. Mike’s long time friend, often editor and sometime collaborator, Jamie, S. Rich wrote the great little 8 page story featuring robots and aliens from outer space that Mike did the art for. Also, this story marks one of the few times that Laura hasn’t coloured Mike’s artwork, instead the task was handled by his son Han. Han has previously coloured one or two other jobs for Mike in the past, and has followed Laura’s footsteps successfully with his vibrant colouring. The images really leap off the page in this fun story. Another special touch to note is that Mike did all the lettering himself, which adds a reminder back to the early days of his career when he and Laura previously did it.

Jamie is also the moderator extraordinaire on Mike’s official Pop Culture Forum.

Above is the second page from the story titled: Sticking Together, and below is the front cover of the book.
