HEARTBREAK CITY #1
$2.00, 8 ½” x 11”, photocopied, 45 pgs.
By Steve Hart

HeartbreakCity could have been a huge drag to read, but they eschew the self-indulgent whininess of a breakup; instead, they focus on what happened and what it felt like to them.




FACIAL DISOBEDIENCE #8
50p, 5½” x 8½”, copied, 24 pgs.
By Keith Rosson

It’s a personal zine, but still edging toward the universal and profound. Sounds like a lot, but like I said, I loved the hell out of this one. Most definitely recommended.


EXPLODING BUFFALO #5
photocopied, 5 ½” x 8 ½”, 44 pgs.
By CT Terry

Essays, stories, and comics about how social media has changed our lives. There are no huge revelations here, but this L.A. crew has assembled a diverse and high-quality set of art, all revolving around the same theme. That ain’t easy.




DREAMS AND DONUTS #17
$2.00 ppd, 8 ½” x 11”, photocopied, 44 pgs.
By Steve Hart

The interview with Jim, who walked from Sacramento to Seattle, is inspirational.


CRUSH ZINE #3
$2,(or trade) , 5½” x 8½”, photocopied, 31pgs.
By Nicole Macias

As an avid partisan of anything cute—i.e. cats, hearts, etc.—Zine Crush encompasses all of the above with a hint of nostalgia sweetly tied to that butterfly-infusing first crush feeling.


COLLECTION OF POEMS BY ANDY GIBSON, A
photocopied, 5 ½” x 8 ½”, 24 pgs.
By CT Terry

Most poems end with a line that sums it up, and often sounds like the lyric seventeen-year-old you would quote from your favorite band.


CABILDO QUARTERLY #3 & #4
$1 each, 11” x 17”, photocopied, 2 pgs.
By Kurt Morris

In essence, it’s not so much a zine as a literary journal that’s very short. I don’t get poetry (which is strange because I write it), but the fiction stories weren’t bad.


BENEATH THE SAME SKY #1
free, 11” x 17” folded, copied, 8 pgs.
By Keith Rosson

BTSS is a Seattle zine focusing on the Japanese screamo scene, which is apparently thriving.


ARTCORE #31
$10, 8” x 10”, offset, 40 pgs.
By Tim Brooks

Welly is a great barometer of taste, one foot in the new Sickoids, Rough Kids, Endless Grinning Skulls, Domestics, Conquest For Death, Off, one in the past Chuck Dukowski, and the best write up of Italian hardcore ever written.


UNUSUAL DEATH OF GREGORY BIGGS: A TRUE STORY, THE
$?, 5 ½” x 8 ½”, copied, 12 pgs.
By Sean Arenas

The murder of Gregory Biggs is a story adapted from Wikipedia’s list of unusual deaths, a story that makes you question human judgment. Biggs was a homeless man struck and imbedded in the windshield of Chante Mallard’s car.


TWO SKUNKS FOR VALENTINE’S DAY: A TRIP TO AWESOME FEST 6
$?, 8½” x 5½”, copied, 24 pgs.
By Matthew Hart

This is a short story by the incredible Mike Faloon about going to Awesome Fest 6 with little detail about Awesome Fest 6. The first part of the story depicts Mike completely unimpressed by the miracle of modern travel. This is completely relatable.




SUNDRIFT
5 ½” x 6”, copied, 20 pgs.
By Dave Brainwreck

It’s not objectively bad, but what it contains is literal diary entries from someone about their meditation and acupuncture sessions and stuff.


SOCIALISM & STATE
$2.50, 8½” x 5½”, copied, 16 pgs.
By James Meier

Socialism & State offers a brief history of socialism throughout modern world history. For being only sixteen pages, it brings up a lot of bigger names.


SHARDS OF GLASS IN YOUR EYE #9
$3, 5 ½” x 8 ½”, copied, 24 pgs.
By Dave Brainwreck

This is a breezy humor zine out of Beverly Hills, California, of all places.  All in all, a very enjoyable, quick read.


ROOTS: BLACK GHETTO ECOLOGY
free, 8½” x 5½”, copied, 17 pgs.
By James Meier

This zine clearly outlines the difference between poor versus poverty and while most people considered “poor” are white, the majority of those living in “poverty” are black, and that cancer rates and health issues tend to be more concentrated in areas labeled as black ghettos.


RISE #1(?)
$?, 5½” x 7½”, copied, 16 pgs.
By Bryan Static

If you asked me to explain what I just read, the only logical answer I could give you would be a confused look.  It made me think about a lot of things. It posed philosophical questions and shook my preconceived notions on what a confusing photocopied zine could be.


RAIN CROW RAIN CROW SING US A SHOWER
$?, 5½” x 7½”, copied with silk-screened cover, 36 pgs.
By Todd Taylor

In these pages is quiet evidence of some of the best literary writing in contemporary zines.


ORGAN GRINDER #1
$5.
By Gary Hornberger

Five dollars! Is that all? What a steal for a book that should replace Highlights at the doctor’s office.


NEITHER THEIR WAR NOR THEIR PEACE: AGAINST MILITARISM, WAR, AND THE STATE MONOPO
$2, 8½” x 5½”, copied, 34pgs.
By James Meier

Altogether, a nice collection of essays giving a better look into contemporary anarchism.


MEDIA JUNKY
$1/stamps or nice letter, 5½ ” x 8 ½”, copied, 15 pgs.
By Craven Rock

Media Junky. Media Junky is a review zine that mostly reviews zines but also bizarro cassettes of noise and stuff like that.


MAXIMUMROCKNROLL #362
$4, 8¼” x 10¾”, newsprint, 128 pgs.
By Art Ettinger

The continued existence of MRR, inarguably the most influential zine in history, makes me very happy.You really can’t go wrong with MRR. Dirtying my fingers since I first picked it up in 1990, MRR persists to satisfy.


HENRY & GLENN FOREVER & EVER #2
$5, 5½” x 7”, offset, 36
By Matthew Hart

Two things before we begin: 1.) I don’t want to live in a world without irony. 2.) I love and appreciate stupidity more than most people. Given both of those facts I should love this zine.


GOOD LUCK #1.
$?, 5½” x 7½”, copied, 36 pgs
By Todd Taylor

This is a charming, good-natured, punk-pun populated comic book centered around the band Good Luck. It gets weird and that’s its strength.


GENEVA13 #19
$?, 8½” x 5½”, copied, 59 pgs.
By Matthew Hart

This is a quality slice of printerberry pie. This issue is about hauntings. Both in the sense of the past imposing itself on the present and the Scooby-Doo variety.


FINALE 95 #1
$?, 4 ¼” x 5 ½”, copied, 36 pgs.
By Dave Brainwreck

Absolutely hilarious zine with seemingly no specific focus besides Alanna’s sharp wit and killer execution.
