NO FRIENDS #1
$8, 8½” x 11”, offset, 96 pgs.
By Matt Average

Whoa! It has been some time since I’ve seen a new music zine come out that’s this packed with content. Outside of the big two (one of which you’re reading), I can’t think of any other zines like this except Mountza and Artcore. All in all, a great start to a zine I hope lasts decades, as they are needed and they are enthusiastic about what they cover.


RUM LAD #9
$2.33, 8” x 5 ½”, copied, 8 pgs.
By Sean Arenas

Rum Lad is a comic zine by Steve Larder of Nottingham sludge metal band Moloch. Larder’s art is varied and frenetic. His cover resembles Paul Pope’s high contrast, nearly realistic style, while his interior art is cartoonish and playful.


RUM LAD, #8
£1.50, 5½” x 7”, copied, 10 pgs.
By Tricia




SIMPLE STEPS TO A LIFE LESS SHITTY
5½” x 8½”, offset, 32 pgs.
By Craven Rock

Depression- Adam Gnade is relentless in writing and trying to figure things out and I think that’s why he really nails it with Simple Steps. Combining personal narrative and empathy, he offers up evidence of what has worked for him, but, more importantly, that it might not tomorrow.


$PARE ¢HANGE #32
$2, 5½” x 8½”, copied, 40 pgs.
By Tricia

You know the junk mail you get that offers ridiculous gifts, gaudy jewelry, collectible memorabilia, and more? Well Rev. Thomas Foote is well-acquainted with it, and decided one day to take them up on their offers… so to speak.


SUSPECT PRESS #8
$?, 8½” x 11”, newsprint, 32 pgs.
By Kurt Morris

This Denver-based zine is primarily fiction and non-fiction tales, along with reviews. There’s also an occasional poem and some drawings and photos.


TALES OF SUCCESS!
$4, 5¾” x 8¾”, 28 pgs.
By Kayla Greet

Semi-regular Razorcake Webcomic Wednesdays contributor Lukas Myhan has put out a comic detailing the recording process of Success’s latest release on Red Scare, titled Radio Recovery.


THRASHEVILLE #4
$10, 8½” x 11”, copied, 116 pgs.
By CT Terry

ThrAsheville covers the DIY punk scene around Asheville, North Carolina. This issue features more than a year’s worth of small, color photos and brief show reviews, and ends with a variety of portrait collections.


TURNING THE TIDE Vol. 28 #4
11” x 17”, newsprint, 16 pgs.
By CT Terry

Turning the Tide is Anti-Racist Action’s anti-racist, anti-fascist, and anti-colonial newspaper.


WELCOME TO YOUR NEW LIFE OF YOU BEING HAPPY
$7, 5½” x 8½”, 32 pgs.
By Kayla Greet

The zine, or chapbook, is chopped into two parts. Part one is poems titled after songs that author Rachel Bell and her boyfriend sing at karaoke. In part two, Bell tackles growing up doubting religion in Catholic school, questioning pro-life stances, and confronting feelings on her rapist.


Featured Zine Reviews from Issue #89

By Staff



Vicky’s mini-essay/stories cover crushing on babes in high school, give a good Chicago zinester visitor’s map, consider how one makes unexpected travel buds through Livejournal, going to “Vega$,” and taking a lot of public transit rides.



GAD #5
stamps or donation, 8 ½” x 11”, copied, 18 pgs.
By Jim Joyce

GAD reports all the punk news fit to print out of Gadsen, Ala., and there is plenty in this jumbo-sized zine. What you’d expect: reviews of undated punk releases found in thrift shops—The TV Attackers have “Sabbath-worthy riffage” but who knows where they are from—alongside the latest from OFF! and some zine reviews.


ABSTRACT DOOR #5
$3, 2¾” x 4¼”, copied, 32 pgs
By Jim Joyce

Abstract Door is a perzine that covers lots of ground: people watching in Chicago, show reports, lots of public transit rides, and daring attempts at international romance, just to name a few.


ADVENTURES OF SADGIRL THE SUPERHEROINE #1
$?, 6” x 7½”, copied, 16 pgs.
By Tricia

In this first issue of Sadgirl, we meet the “liberator of sad girls everywhere.” Written by a mother and illustrated by her young daughter, our superheroine deals with evil stepfathers and uncles, who go from putting girls down to trying to creep on them.


ADVENTURES OF SADGIRL THE SUPERHEROINE #4,
$?, 5½” x 8½”, copied, 18 pgs
By Tricia

Written by a mother and illustrated by her daughter, this comic zine features a superheroine who helps women deal with everyday sexism and patriarchal bullshit.


AT THE END OF THE DAY
$2, 4¼” x 5½”, copied, 45 pgs.
By Jim Joyce

Dave Roche (If Nothing Else, the Sky, On Subbing, About My Disappearance) and Karen (Keepin It 1 Hunna) share At The End of the Day, which is comprised of their journal entries. Except here the entries have all been cut down to their last line—to their last thoughts of the day.


BASIC PAPER AIRPLANE #9
$2, 5½”x 6½”, copied, 20 pgs.
By Jim Joyce

Joshua James organizes boatloads of zine events out in Portland and writes Basic Paper Airplane. When he’s not organizing, he puts out fine work like issue #9, an illustrated essay on the history of typewriters—with the history of James’s own typewriter collection blended in.


CABILDO QUARTERLY #8
$1, 11” x 17”, copied, 2 pgs
By kurt

It’s mainly carried on the weight of the two fictional tales—a tragic, touching piece by Richard Katrovas that tells the tale of a man with early-onset Alzheimer’s, and another by Jes Skolnik, in which she writes about a nineteenth-century woman’s experience with spiritualism.


DROP TARGET ZINE #7, The Future Issue
$5, 5 ½” x 8 ½”, black and white printing, bound, 64 pgs.
By Kayla Greet

Sad day! This is the final installment of my favorite pinball zine.


EXERCISING DEMONS #2
$2/trade, 8½” x 5½”, copied, 20 pgs.
By keith

Exercising Demons is the second effort from a fifty-something-year-old guy, which I think is super impressive and pretty courageous.


FÜTCHI PERF
$15, 6” x 9”, offset, 84 pgs
By Sean Arenas

Kevin Czap skillfully melds Paul Pope’s pop futurism with Bob Fingerman’s candid day-to-day minutiae.


GAD! #9
8 ½” x 11”, copied, 23 pgs
By Craven Rock

This zine has all the look and feel of the music zines from long ago: photocopied, stapled, and full-sized, goofy fonts.


I KNOW WHAT I AM: THE TRUE STORY OF ARTEMESIA GENTILESCHI Part Two
$12, 7” x 10 ½”, bound, 74 pgs.
By Kayla Greet

Part two of Gina Siciliano’s graphic novel trilogy about the tumultuous tale of Artemesia Gentileschi, one of Italy’s only top female painters of the seventeenth century.


KNIFE + A BIKE CHAIN #1
$6.50, 11” x 8½”, copied, 36 pgs.
By keith

LikeSnakepit, the cut of Steve’s jib here is doing an autobiographical comic a day. This first issue of K+ABC takes place over the stretch of a month, where he navigates the end of a relationship, a new place to live, and a job that he’s resoundingly unhappy with.


LOTS OF ROT #2
$?, 5½” x 8½”, copied, 52 pgs
By Tricia

This zine was all over the place—from interviews with musicians, to recipes for vegetarian food, to record reviews. Honestly, it was a bit hard for me to follow.
