Featured Zine Reviews From Issue #86
Oh, to read a newspaper!
By Staff

I can really see myself crawl inside a bottle of wine with this zine clutched to my chest, trying to find the sad beauty in places you might not think it exists.
- Simon Sotelo reviewing Anecdotal Dinners.




ANECDOTAL DINNERS
$5, 4¼” x 5½”, copied, 50pgs.
By Simon Sotelo

From a distance, I can sum up the tone as mixing the funny, the sad, and the insignificant into short poems no more than two sentences long.


BRAINSCAN #31
$2, 5½” x 4”, copied, offset cover, 20 pgs.
By Keith Rosson

Alex is definitely one of the “old guard” of Portland zine culture, and what we have here is a quick rumination on where Portland fits in her life, and other notions of acceptance and belonging—noting that relationship with parents sometimes mellow with age...


DITHERING DOODLES #15
$1 or free with trade, 8 ½” x 5 ½”, copied, 32 pgs.
By Ashley

Dithering Doodles is a jib jab of ideas scrawled out in pencil, pen, and sharpie all compiled together into one big playful mess.


FUNNY THINGS TEENS SAY AT WORK
$?, 5 ½” x 4”, copied, 16 pgs.
By Guest Contributor

Bryan works at a shelter for homeless nine to seventeen-year-olds. As you can imagine, this is an intense job that can be very hard and emotionally trying. However, this zine isn’t about that. 


INSIDE OVER
$?, 4” x 5 ½”, copied, 28 pgs.
By Guest Contributor

Inside Over is a collection of written and visual art. It’s a real page-turner.


MAXIMUM ROCKNROLL #381
$4.99, 8” x 10 ½”, newsprint, 120 pgs.
By Guest Contributor

Band photo of the month takes the backseat to a tone-setting political statement of a cover: a full page list of names in memoriam of many of the unarmed people of color who were murdered by cops from year 2000 to present. 


NEW SOUTHERN GOTHIC POISONED YOUR KIDS, THE
$5, 6½” x 10”, 20 pgs.
By Guest Contributor

The New Southern Gothic Poisoned Your Kids is a collection of modern horror short stories by Emma Caterine. I don’t mean horror in the sense of a slasher killing twenty-something-year-olds at a camp, I mean real life awful scenes that may remind you of something you’ve been through or experienced through another person.


NOT LIKE YOU ISSUE 2
$?, 8½” x 11”, 40pgs.
By Camylle Reynolds

Not Like You Issue Two is a full fanzine of new and old school skate punk, chock full of band interviews (Los Olvidados and The Faction), skate and band pics, record reviews, columns, rants, and just brim full of fucking punk, all printed on high quality matte stock.


ONLY LET IN THOSE WHO DESERVE THE PERSON YOU REALLY ARE
$?, 6½” x 10”, 12 pgs.
By Guest Contributor

With a full color photo cover, filled with black and white photo insides, this zine consists of poems, short thoughts, and what feels like advice from a stream of consciousness. It instilled in me a sense of longing, of places I miss or think I miss.


SEAMS & THE STORY, THE: GOODBYE TO ALL THAT
$2, 5 ½” x 8 ½”, copied, 20 pgs.
By Guest Contributor

She uniquely captures the grief experienced with a loss of place and time... and tells a story of a quickly disappearing magic.


SLINGSHOT #117
free, newspaper, 15 pgs.
By Ashley

Oh, to read a newspaper! Feeling ink smudge against my finger pads and hearing the rustle of the oversized pages, I have to admit these are experiences I rarely indulge in. Slingshot is the newspaper experience I have yearned for.


SOBERTIME!! 1
$3, 5 ½” x 8 ½”, printed, 20 pgs.
By Guest Contributor

As a recently sober person (a few months short of a year) who has become obsessed with the “re-learning how to live” aspect of staying punk in the absence of booze... that being said, I wouldn’t recommend this to anyone who can’t stomach bro-dude humor.


SPARE CHANGE #29
$2/trade, 8½” x 5½”, copied, 32 pgs.
By Keith Rosson

Slice of life stories that focus, for the most part, on family, drinking, punk houses, and the pitfalls of partying like a mofo... but there’s a kind of detachment here that left me a little cold and made it difficult to get really wrapped up in these tales.


STOLEN SHARPIE REVOLUTION: A DIY RESOURCE FOR ZINES AND ZINE CULTURE
$10, 4 ½” x 5 ½”, 156 pgs.
By Guest Contributor

The fifth edition of the go-to for all things zine related. This has been a great resource for anyone and everyone interested in self-publishing since 2002. 


THROAT CULTURE #15
$2, 5½” x 8½”, copied, 26 pgs.
By Indiana Laub

The bulk of this scrappy little zine consists of reviews of tapes, records, and zines that the author is very stoked on. Genres range from folk to pop punk to hardcore—this person has a lot to be pumped about and won’t hold back from letting you know.


TURNING THE TIDE
$?, 8½” x 11”, newsprint, 28 pgs.
By Keith Rosson

Turning the Tide is a radical anti-racist/anti-fascist magazine; this issue of a kind of commemorative one celebrating their twenty-five years of publication.


TURNING THE TIDE: A JOURNAL OF INTER-COMMUNAL SOLIDARITY, VOL. 28 #2
$2, oversized, 15 pgs.
By Guest Contributor

A Los Angeles local publication, Turning the Tidefeatures articles and essays full of anti-racist, anti-fascist resources and informative text. The publication is highly political throughout.


Featured Zine Reviews from Issue #85

By Staff

This zine left me asking myself, “When is a better time for punk
than now in the midst of all this bullshit?"




ATARAXIA #9
$?, 4 ½” x 5 ½”, copied, 12 pgs.
By Guest Contributor

A short chapbook compiled of four poems by various authors accompanied by doodly illustrations.


BIBLE OF CAVS FANDOM, THE
free, 8 ½” x 11”, newsprint, 28pgs.
By Billups Allen

This zine covers fandom of the Cleveland Cavaliers basketball team. The zine is very cut up and photocopied-looking—i.e. very punk. 


CERTAIN PEOPLE I DON’T KNOW #2 and #5
$1, 5 ½” x 4 ¼”, copied, 16 pgs.
By Lisa Weiss

Well-drawn portraits of people the author encounters on public transportation.


CRETINS OF DISTORTION #5 / KILL YR PARENTS GARDEN #9
$?, 7” x 8”, copied, 6 pgs.
By Guest Contributor

From the cold, insipid heart of America comes the explosively degenerate split fanzine you’ve been waiting for! Cretins of Distortion literally melts your brain with thirty-one retrospective reviews of Midwest punk bands.


EXTREME NOISE: 20 YEARS! #1
$7.50 ppd., 7 ¾” x 10 ½”, offset, 52 pgs.
By Matt Average

This zine is a oral history of the store from past and present volunteers, as well as long-time customers covering the beginning, dealing with landlords, financial struggles, meetings, strange customers, and all else that one encounters and faces in such a setting.


GOOD LORD #0
$?, 8 ½” x 5 ½”, copied, 16 pgs.
By Lisa Weiss

Collages. The cover is blue. It was probably fun to make.
