PAGES FROM THE CULTURAL ETHER: LOVE & BEAUTY #1
$1, 5½” x 8½”, copied, 30 pgs.
By Bianca

This is a collage-based zine that the author hopes readers will rework into their own art. Since these collages also include word bubbles, they end up coming off like a much cooler version of the Sunday funnies.


ORGAN GRINDER #3
$5, 8½” x11”, full-color, 24 pgs.
By Lisa Weiss

This is cool! This full-color zine is full of puzzles to keep the old gray matter from turning to mush. Not your mom’s Sudoku or your dad’s crossword. Noooo. There are lots of cool brain-teasers....


MAXIMUMROCKNROLL #371
$4.99, 8½” x 11”, newsprint, 144 pgs.
By keith

Like many volunteer-run efforts, the visual and written aesthetics wildly vary, but that’s always been the case with MRR. Personally, I especially appreciate how much effort (via interviews, columnists, scene reports, etc.) obviously goes into making MRR a truly international, expansive endeavor.


LOGICAL FALLACIES: A SKEPTICAL ILLUMINATION
$1, 5½” x 8½”, copied, 26 pgs.
By Bianca

That name is not a lie: this zine is a cram sesh on logical fallacies. What’s a logical fallacy?


LIFE IS POSERS #1-2
$5 each, 5½” x 8½”, 58 pgs.
By Bryan Static

The art is kind of bland and repetitive, but the writing is solid enough to carry it through. We follow the lives of a bunch of punks as they throw a party at a friend’s house. There are plenty of characters to sympathize with, depending on your relationship with the punk scene.


LET DOWN #2
$?, 8 ½” x 5 ½”, copied, 34 pgs.
By kurt

The second issue of this cut-and-paste zine has interviews with Eccentric Pop Records (Groovie Ghoulies, Jetty Boys, The Putz), The Young Rochelles, and Chris Clavin of Plan-It-X Records.


HUG IT OUT #1
$2 ppd. U.S., $3 ppd. Canada & Mexico, $4 ppd. world,
By norb

Wrestling takes on this insanely large dimension of sincere importance in the minds of the true fans, and it’s cool to be led, Aaron Cometbus-style, thru the psyches of some current devotees of the art form.


GUIDE TO DATING GANGSTERS: VOL. 2
$4, 5 ½” x 8 ½”, copied, 18 pgs.
By Ashley

By broadening the scope of what constitutes a “gang,” the writer provides a humorous in-depth look at groups not commonly attributed with the moniker.


GENEVA13 #20
free in Geneva, $2 to get mailed, 8½” x 5½”, copied, 32pgs.
By James Meier

This zine puts the biggest emphasis on a local city town—in this instance, Geneva, New York—I’ve ever seen. It’s great. This particular issue has interviews with the store owners and artists of Linden Street.


EXCUSE ME WHILE I THINK FREELY #5
$?, 5½” x 8½”, copied, 17 pgs.
By Bianca

EMWITF is a mixed bag, full of prose, poetry, non-fiction, and the occasional crudely drawn comic.


EARTH FIRST! BRIGID 2014
$6.50, 8½” x 11”, glossy cover, 57 pgs.
By James Meier

Earth First brings you news on all things environmental going on around the world, and also acts as a forum that anyone can write into and have a chance to get published.




CURING CANCER #1
$?, 5½” x 8½”, copied, 44 pgs.
By Bryan Static

Despite the Germs reference on the cover, most of this book’s humor comes from science references, puns, and nerd trivia. Kind of like XKCD. Half of the pages were blank, and the commentary for the comics was longer than the comics themselves. GRADE: C-.


CABILDO QUARTERLY #6
$1, 11” x 17”, copied, 2 pgs.
By kurt

The sixth issue of this literary rag is still two pages. There are a number of poems and a story by Jeff Schroeck of the band Black Wine....  This is coming along well.


AS YOU WERE: A PUNK COMIX ANTHOLOGY: #3
$10, 5 ½” x 7 ½”, offset with cardstock cover, 112 pgs.
By Ashley

The entries featured are snapshots into the lives of each contributor. While some comics do this more literally than others, each is truly personal.... This collection has something for everyone; a great addition on any bookshelf.


ANIMALIA #1
$2, 8½” x 5½”, copied, 28 pgs.
By Lisa Weiss

The first story is young adult fiction gone horribly wrong. The other two have a strong social satire component. It’s what I would imagine Jonathan Swift would write if he watched a lot of sci-fi/horror movies.


TALES FROM THE WILL
$?, 5 ½” x 8 ½”, copied, 16 pgs.
By mp

This zine is essentially a lyric book for New York horror punk band The Will. I did not know that before I read it, so I processed it as a poetry zine, but with poetry about one of my favorite subjects: horror movies.


STOWAWAYS, THE #15
$2, 8 ½” x 11”, copied, 20 pgs.
By CT Terry

A guy’s life, mainly told through the shows that he goes to. It’s all there, from packed fest to empty room.


SHORT FAST & LOUD #27
$?, 8 ½” x 11”, newsprint, 64 pgs.
By CT Terry

Rad newsprint zine that appears to be run by survivors of the ‘90s powerviolence scene.


SAL SI PUEDES #4
$?, 8 ½” x 11”, glossy, 72 pgs.
By CT Terry

Double issue of a glossy zine about life in City Terrace, East L.A. Between the full-page neighborhood portraits are rambling writings, including an affecting tale of long-term angel dust abuse in the writer’s family.


RUBBERNECK #7
$5, 8 ½” x 11”, printed, 40 pgs.
By Dave Brainwreck

Professional, often staged shots of bands and musicians. Fairly heavy on the contemporary garage scene.


RENATE #19
€6.45, 8 ½” x 11”, copied, 24 pgs.
By Dave Brainwreck

The theme of this German-based international comics anthology is the “end of the teenage years.”


RADVOCATE, THE v. 2, #11
$2, 5 ½” x 8 ½”, copied, 40 pgs.
By Bianca

This zine is also “an unsponsored platform for writers, artists, and poets to submit their work to,” but advertising themselves as a spot for non-pros does not translate into a sub-par zine.


RABBIT, RABBIT, RABBIT #2
$2, 5 ½” x 8 ½”, copied, 36 pgs.
By keith

Inspired, jazzed-up zine from a guy in rural Wisconsin who frequently makes the trek to Milwaukee.


PROFANE EXISTENCE #64
$2 U.S. ppd., $4 Can. ppd., 11 ½” x 17”, newsprint, 36 pgs.
By Indiana Laub

Nearly forty pages’ worth of assorted content collected from the Profane Existence blog—all of the columns and interviews herein were originally published online in 2012 or 2013.


PA’ PALENQUE
$?, 2 ¾” x 4 ½”, copied, 8 pgs.
By keith

Little one-page foldout zine about a band called Sexteto Tabalà. They live in a tiny little town in Columbia and play a blend of Cuban and Afro Columbian music.
