YOU ARE DESTINED FOR DARKER THINGS
$3, 6½” x 8”, copied, 20 pgs.
By Guest Contributor

Entrancingly cryptic and punk as fuck, You Are Destined for Darker Things is a reissue of Nick Wortham’s hypnotic and severely beautiful pen and ink illustrations.


WORLD WAR XI PRESENTS EARACHES AND EYESORES #5
$5, 6 ½” x 10 ¼”, 32 pgs.
By Bryan Static

Half comic book about alcoholic depression and the recovery thereof, half recorded music of the band featured in the comic.


WASTED OPPORTUNITIES #9
$4, 5 ½” x 8 ½ “, copied, 29 pgs.
By Simon Sotelo

Written by a native Australian, we are given a glimpse into a country that has a natural progression of following in the United States’ trail of gloom and doom otherwise referred to as expectionalism.


TRUST #170
$?, 8” x 11 ½”, offset, 68 pgs.
By Matt Average

Trust has been around forever, I think second to Maximum Rocknroll in the field of longevity. I still don’t know enough German to read it through, but I do like looking at the clean, minimal layouts, and the incredibly clear and sharp photographs within its pages.


TOTAL BLAST
$3, 8 ½” x 11 ½”, copied, 16 pgs.
By Simon Sotelo

They reminded me of material I would write about my imaginary friends in the forth grade. By no means am I saying that this is cringe-worthy; I was smiling through most of it.


THIS IS NOT A CAMERA
$0.99, 8” x 5”, newsprint, 75 pgs.
By Sean Arenas

...reading and re-reading Jim Ruland’s writing only increased my appreciation of his irony-laden voice and scalpel-precise style. Ruland worked at an Indian casino for nearly six years and each piece in this zine is a report from the frontline.


THIS IS NOT A CAMERA
$0.99, 8” x 5”, newsprint, 75 pgs.
By Simon Sotelo

Fucking great zine. He chronicles the ins and outs of what it is like working at an Indian casino for five years. He relates his experience and knowledge to working at Disneyland and how it can destroy or enhance the magic.


THIS DARKNESS IS ONLY THE SHADOW OF OUR LIGHT
$4.50 ppd., copied, 18 pgs.
By Keith Rosson

Impressive collection of illustrations from a guy named Nick Wortham. Dark, black-heavy, detailed, loaded images with a flair for the what? Occult? Spiritual? Weird?
I see car fresheners and dollar bills inserted sporadically throughout these pieces.


STAYING IN: HOLIDAYS 2014
5 ½” x 8 ½”, copied, 12 pgs.
By Craven Rock

A while back I got an issue of Staying In. It was mostly the editor talking about going to shows and being punk. With this one he reveals his true agenda, to start up a sort of non-weekly alternative to Jersey City’s entertainment weekly, Steppin’ Out...


SPARE CHANGE #30
8 ½” x 5 ½”, $4 ppd., copied, 88 pgs.
By Keith Rosson

Thirty issues in twenty years is nothing to sneeze at...
Vignettes about life, family, friendship, drinking, and religion are scattered between poems, drawings, collages and stories by a few other contributors. Cut and paste, typewritten.


SENTINEL, THE #3
$1 or trade, 5 ½” x 8 ½”, copied, 18 pgs.
By Craven Rock

The Sentinel is a zine focusing on Seattle’s metal scene. It’s totally interview-based. In its third issue, it could really use some development in that area.


RUM LAD #7
$?, 4” x 5 ¾”, 18 pgs.
By Bryan Static

Cute, charming diary comics from Steven of the band Moloch.


PORTLAND UNDERGROUND PUNK ART ZINE #1
$0, 18” x 11”, newsprint, 16 pgs.
By Guest Contributor

This is an awesome free new paper featuring non-music related art from the DIY Portland punk scene.


PHASES OF THE MOON #5
$10, copied, 120 pgs.
By Guest Contributor

Phases of the Moon is probably one of the most heartbreaking and familiar zines I’ve come to read this year.


PENIS HIDER
$?, 5½” x 8½”, copied, 12 pgs.
By Guest Contributor

Penis Hideris a term that was coined by Denis to describe a particular “kind of guy, who comes off as being Mr. Politically Correct, loves Kathleen Hanna and calls himself a feminist.


NOT MY SMALL DIARY #18
5 ½” x 8 ½”, 152 pgs.
By Bryan Static

This issue’s theme: Pets. Pieces ranging from lifestyle poetry, to accounts of past family pets, to incidents where animals brought out a conversation that would never happen otherwise.


MAXIMUM ROCK’N’ROLL #383
$4.99, 8 ½” x 11”, copied, 128 pgs.
By Indiana Laub

Here’s something different from Old Faithful. Well, the regular columns, reviews, and smudgy record label ads are still here, but the interviews have been replaced in this issue with comics and illustrations by an impressive range of international artists.


MASCULINITIES
$4, 8 ½” x 7”, copied, 28pgs.
By Simon Sotelo

Masculinities features a series of interviews from members in the DIY community who were asked how masculinity was perceived and presented in their journey growing up, and how it has effected them in hindsight.


LINDBLOM BROS. COMIX
$?, 5 ½” x 4 ¾”, 84 pgs.
By Bryan Static

I would debate whether you would actually call the contents of this zine “comics.” Is it illustrated? Absolutely, but one panel a page, one illustration per “thought.”


KEEP TRACK OF THE TIME 2014 Collection
$?, copied, 46 pgs.
By Guest Contributor

Keep Track of the Time 2014 Collection is exactly as the title says. A forty-six page zine compiled of record reviews, interviews, and an all-around best-of collection of the author’s blog of the same name.


INHUMAN CONDITION
$?, 6 ½” x 10 ¼”, 24 pgs.
By Bryan Static

A post-apocalyptic sci-fi meditation of loss and paranoia. The story is the descendant of Lynch and Kafka.


HOLY AUTOMATIC, THE
$?, 5 ½” x 8 ½”, copied, 44 pgs.
By Kurt Morris

This is an assemblage of poetry supposedly inspired by the bible. The person who edited this describes it as “a compilation of cutups, redacted poetry, and automatic writing all culled from the bible.”


GRAVITY POWERED POCKETS
$6 ppd, 5 ½” x 8 ½”, printed, 36 pgs.
By Guest Contributor

Gravity Powered Pockets is “short writings about wild childhood adventures, real wisdom from elders, funny family stories, science articles, and contemplations on music and morality.”


GRAVE ROBBERS FROM OUTER SPACE #1
$?, 6 ½” x 10”, 12 pgs.
By Bryan Static

Pointless fan service that is utter nonsense unless you have some familiarity with the bands involved.


GOOFBOOK #7
$2 or trade, 4” x 5 ½”, copied, 22 pgs.
By Guest Contributor

Super goofycomics from Gonk Publishing out of Chico, CA. A cutesy rectangular bear-like creature delivers one nerdy punch line after another.
