$1, 5 ½ x 8 ½, copied, 44 pgs.
By Joe Evans III

Not for grammar buffs.

$4, 8 ¼ x 10 ½, glossy cover, newsprint, lots of pages, comes with CD.
By Todd Taylor

If you’re even remotely interested in hardcore and punk and want to be immersed in a zine for the better part of a week full of reading, Suburban Voice is more valuable than an ass patch is to a crusty punk.

SORE, #13
$2 ppd., 8 ½ x 11, newsprint, 40 pgs.
By Sean Carswell

The real stand out here is an excellent story about a guy’s love affair with a girl who lives in a trailer park.

$3.95, 8 x 10 ¾, full color cover, heavy stock, 100 pgs.
By Todd Taylor

Not only does Shredding Paper review over five hundred pieces of music in this issue to satiate my ever-burgeoning desire to hear more and more music, they do it well.

$3 ppd., 5 ½ x 8 ½, copied, 48 pgs.
By Maddy

Haikus about Gillette razors, Starbucks, the Gap, and more. Letters addressing important questions like “What exactly are the 2000 parts my family needs to wash with Lever soap?”

$1, 5 ½ x 8 ½, copied, 60 pgs.
By Joe Evans III

Resist is always a sort of condensed version of all of the books that Matte has just finished reading and it works well this way.

$3 ppd., 8 ½ x 11, newsprint, glossy cover, 100 pgs.
By Sean Carswell

The most appropriate thing in this sorry excuse for a magazine is the comic about a superhero who has a guy living in his ass, which is kind of like the editors of this magazine, who apparently live with their heads up their asses. So, anyway, this zine is highly recommended.

$1, 8 ½ x 5 ½, copied, 32 pgs.
By Cuss Baxter

While I’m intrigued by his challenge to Ben Weasel to suck his dick over whether the Ramones are lame or not, I’ll still say: worst zine ever.

$1/stamps, 5 ½ x 8 ½, copied, 44 pgs.
By Joe Evans III

Point: old school rules, Counterpoint: I’m white trash. You get the picture.

free/trade, 5 ½ x 8 ½, copied, 8 pgs.
By Sean Carswell

Opinions is eight pages of rants by a guy who clearly spends more time ranting than he does thinking.

$2 ppd., 5 ½ x 8 ½, copied, 64 pgs.
By Sean Carswell

At the core of this zine is basically the story of one young man’s struggle against contemporary society and his confusion about where his next step through non-conformity will take him.

$1 ppd., 5 ½ x 8 ½, photocopied 18 pgs.
By Todd Taylor

 If you want to read some competent, non-knee jerk reactions against anarchism, give Bob a try.

#2, $3.50 ppd., 8 ½ x 11, offset, 46 pgs.
By Matt Average

Garage punk sort of zine.

$2 USA, $3 Intl., 216 x 177, copied, 60 pgs.
By Cuss Baxter

Among goofy features you’ll also find chats with the Decibels, Big Dipper, and Moo La La Records’ Scott Soriano, as well as numerous references to Cheap Trick and the Knack.

F.T.W., #4 and #5
5 ½ x7, photocopied, 46 pgs.
By Todd Taylor

Movie reviews are done by a piss-happy dwarf, the fashion tip of the next season is nudity with huge genitalia, and the longest essay is about making the world’s largest hamburger and giving the world’s second largest hamburger to a grateful bum.

$1/trade, 5 ½ x 8 ½, copied, 48 pgs.
By Joe Evans III

The recurring theme in her zine is always sex and her thoughts on it; emotional and political and how they intersperse with each other.

COLDBRINGER, #1 and #2
free, 8 ½ x 7, photocopied, 32 pgs.
By Todd Taylor

Andy’s a guy you really should listen to if you want a great bead on up-and-coming hardcore. He’s got a great ear, picks fantastic music, is a fair-minded reviewer, and is enthusiastic without being a dummy about it.

$2, 7 x 8 ½, copied, 44 pgs.
By Joe Evans III

From thinking that he had a sinus infection to finding out that he has asthmatic bronchitis, he talks about the new “crazy” things he does after quitting smoking.

benjones COLLECTION, The, #1-7
$5 for 7 zines, 5 ½ x 8 ½, copied, several pages.
By Sean Carswell

Through five issues, you see the Death Weasel grow and develop, sink into debilitating depression, rise out of it, fall in love, transform into the main character of a comic strip, and return to old comic format in time to investigate ethereal realms.

$2 ppd., 8 ½ x 11, newsprint, 32 pgs.
By Sean Carswell

It’s certainly ambitious. Keep an eye out for this one in the future.

$3.50, 8 x 10 ½, glossy cover, newsprint with full-color signatures, 40 pgs.
By Todd Taylor

Did you know that Benjamin Franklin used electricity to slaughter animals and he owned the first bathtub in America

$2 ppd., 5 ½ x 8 ½, copied, 200 pgs.
By Matt Average

He talks about how he’s sick of rich kids going on and on about privilege (here! here!), the environment, abuse, train hopping, and more.

$3.50, 8 ½ x 11, newsprint, glossy cover, 92 pgs.
By Sean Carswell

The quality of writing in this zine varies a lot, but there are some definite high points.

ROCK N ROLL PURGATORY #5, #6, and #7
8 ½ x 11, photocopied, 50-something pages each
By Sean Carswell

The highest compliments I can pay this zine are: 1. they pulled me into reading interviews with bands I didn’t know, and I came out of the interviews wanting the hear the bands, and 2. their music coverage reminded me of a bunch of albums that I like a lot and haven’t listened to lately.

READ #20
$4.00, 8 ½ x 11, offset, full-color cover, 86 pgs.
By Sean Carswell

Cool anecdotes about office romances that never happened or went awry, the bittersweet drama of the elementary school “couple’s skate,” one woman’s history of crushes from adolescence on, and the ultimate in safe crushes: falling for the unobtainable.
