$2 ppd., 5 ½” x 8 ½”, copied, 16 pgs.
By Alanna Why

With the tagline “Making surf a fucking threat again,” this fanzine passionately covers obscure surf bands both live and recorded.

$2 or trade, 5 ½” x 8 ½”, copied, 12 pgs.
By Bianca

Reena’s zine is a perzine in the sense that you get a really good idea of the kind of person she is when you’re done reading, but instead of being done through direct “This is my life” tales (though there are a couple interludes of that nature), the reader learns about the author mostly through top ten lists.

$?, 5 ½” x 8 ¼”, copied, 32 pgs.
By Daryl Gussin

You can always depend onJerk Store to follow through. Both in its approach to music, and its attention to detail. Do you like CBDS and The Partisans? If so, this zine is waiting for you.

$4.50, 5” x 8 ½”, printed, 36 pgs.
By Dave Brainwreck

Jessie Dukes is a naturally talented writer whose style matches her content—classically sentimental, clear, and melancholic prose concerning a group of people who have taken to the land in Kansas.

$4, 5 ½” x 8 ½”, copied, 9 pgs.
By Simon Sotelo

My favorite excerpts describe in minor detail, what the fuck this shit DMT does to you and what the outcomes are when done correctly.

$4, 5” x 8 ½”, copied, 20 pgs.
By Dave Brainwreck

Small vignettes consisting of slices of the author’s life and a few other odds and ends (reviews, interview, recipe, fiction). The writing is solid but not super meaty.

FINALE 95 #3
$2 Can., $3 U.S., $4 Int’l, 3 ¼” x 5 ½”, copied, 26 pgs.
By Bianca

Subtitle of this zine, Bildungsroman, is described for the reader as a type of novel that comes from the German tradition and deals with the “formative years” of the main character (moral, emotion, psychological) and ending on a high note, with the silly follies of the protagonist behind them.

Free, 8 ½” x 5 ½”, copied, w/glossy cover, 37 pgs.
By kurt

And all of it was based on the theme of dreams, so it was cool to see some consistency on a topic. If you’ve always been a fan of sleep and dreams, then I’d definitely suggest checking this out.

$?, 5 ½ x 8 ½, copied, 54pgs.
By Camylle Reynolds

Highlights include weird escapades to rural punk shows, simple how-to’s in zine making, bad punk haircuts (are you an offender?), the depths of despair in dating, into a thoughtful discourse on self-awareness, feminism, and gender politics surrounding punk shows (politics of the pit).

$5 ppd., 5½” x 8½”, copied, 26 pgs.
By Alanna Why

An angsty photography and prose zine full of musings on failed relationships and music.

£2.90, 5 ½” x 8 ½”, copied, 24 pgs.
By keith

A guy from The Briggs doing a zine that consists of various online pieces gathered together.

$?, 8 ½” x 5 ½”, copied, 20 pgs.
By keith

This is a short zine with a bunch of drawings by various artists. Most of the drawings involved punks and skeletons and are really well done.

$3, 4 ¼” x 5 ½”, copied w/ color cover, 32 pgs.
By keith

Cute, quick, typewritten zine interspersed with what looks to be nineteenth century ink illustrations of kids playing. A variety of topics are briefly tackled (“How We Met,” “Success,” “Grown Ups”), usually in a space of a paragraph.

$2 or trade, 5 ½” x 8 ½”, copied, 8 pgs.
By Dave Brainwreck

Harsh and sparse. Pictures of cops (“bastards”) who were killed by civilians (“heroes”). Short bio of each cop and a short account of the killing and resulting prison sentence.

$3, 5 ½” x 8 ½”, copied, 35 pgs.
By Sean Arenas

Wilde’s honest depiction of WildcatAcademy, a second chance high school, and its cast of disenfranchised, unmotivated, and malcontent students is often cringe-inducing.

$?, 5 ½” x 8 ½” copied, 47 pgs.
By Claire Palermo

TNS’s tenth anniversary issue of their free fanzine is an excellent introduction to the storied underground U.K. punk and ska label, even if you’re like me and are embarrassed that you haven’t heard of a single band mentioned.

copied, 5 ½” x 8 ½”, 10 pgs.
By Camylle Reynolds

This primitive and cute little zine written by Marie Sudduth left me scratching my head, which at least got me thinking.

$2, 5 ½” x 8 ½”, 32 pgs.
By Kevin Dunn

This is a collection of stories about Ben Snakepit’s tattoos. And there it is, a photo of his naked body right there on the cover, flashing some ink as a preview of what is inside.

donations/trades/stamps, 5 ½” x 8 ½”, copied and bound, 100 pgs.
By Craven Rock

After a serious mental breakdown where he rid himself of all his possessions and left his wife and home in a cross-country fugue to New Orleans that ended in near oblivion, he decided to “quit running.”

copied, 5 ½” x 8 ½”, 10 pgs.
By Camylle Reynolds

Intelligent and saucy, Let’s Talk About Sexting is a smart little read that appeals to anyone who likes sex, but may or may not have a clue on the proper etiquette and rhetoric that will… um… get the job done.

$3, 5 ½” x 8 ½”, copied, 16pgs.
By Simon Sotelo

Let Down is a review zine based out of Chicago and is a great resource for those interested in pop punk, listing a ton of distros, bands, and reviews.

$5 ppd., 5 ½” x 8 ½” copied, 30pgs.
By Simon Sotelo

John Porcellino was “living in the most depressing building,” “in the most depressing town,” and “bitter about…life in general.” Actually, there isn’t anything bitter about this zine. 

$5ppd., audio cassette, 92 mins.
By keith

The basics: Interviews and live recordings (and possibly demos?) of four bands that played Chaos in Tejas in 2012. Bands include Wiccans, Creamers, Cülo, and Pierced Arrows.

GENEVA13 #20
$2, 8 ½” x 5 ½”, copied, 59 pgs.
By Bianca

Geneva13 is explained as “a love story to this town of ours,“ but another way to put it would be to say that it’s a fanzine to the college town of Geneva, population about 13,000, on the Finger Lakes in New York State.

Free, 8 ½” x 11”, copied, 66 pgs.
By Sean Arenas

Exploding Buffalo provides tons of varied content—poetry, articles, illustrations, photography, short fiction, a one-act play—from several contributors. The issue explores differing viewpoints about the nature and purpose of religion.
