AS YOU WERE: A PUNK COMIX ANTHOLOGY #2
$5, 5½” x 8½”, offset with card stock cover, 80 pgs.
By Candice Tobin

Between panels of broken glasses and bruised egos are tales of growing up, dealing with anxiety, and becoming comfortable with who you are.


AS YOU WERE: A PUNK COMIX ANTHOLOGY #2
$5, 5½” x 8½”, offset with card stock cover, 80 pgs.
By Bryan Static

Reading the tales in this sophomore issue of this Mitch Clem-curated zine, it’s not hard to imagine that the title is intended as a reflection. This issue’s theme is “The Pit.”


AGAINST THE POVERTY OF LANGUAGE AND THOUGHT: THESES ON THE CELL PHONE
?$, 5 ½” x 8 ½”, copied, 4 pgs.
By Dave Brainwreck

Numbered list of capsulated arguments either against the ubiquity of cell phones and their malicious effect on modern society.


UNFORTUNATE MISHAPS IN AVIATION HISTORY
$2, 5 ½” x 8 ½”, copied, 12 pgs.
By Sean Arenas

True stories of unusual deaths make for the perfect counterbalance to Gennis’s artwork. Straddling the fence between caricature and realism, Gennis, with bold black strokes, is able to coldly render facts, as well as dark humor, with surgical precision.


UNDER A BROKEN STREET LAMP
$5, 4.25” x 11”, photocopied, ? pgs.
By Kurt Morris

Essington has a story about a guy who has ruined his life by running off his job with a girl who is half his age... Gurz has a tale about a punk prostitute who kills men she sleeps with.


STOWAWAYS, THE #14
$2, 8 ½” x 11”, photocopied, 24 pgs.
By Sean Arenas

The Stowaways is a slapdash xeroxed document that embodies the urgency and variety of Southern California’s DIY punk scene. For all its aesthetic blemishes (which somehow enhances the earnestness), Chris Gordon’s refreshingly self-assured voice and proudly anti-revisionist stream-of-consciousness format ensures that each issue is a home run.


SOMETHING FOR NOTHING #67
5 ½ x 8 ½, 44 pgs., photocopied, $ 2 stamps
By Matt Average

He gives us reviews of (just about) everything from Skins, Brains, & Guts to Take It Back, Take It On, Take It Over. Mixed with a bit of personal recollection and information, this makes for a good read. It definitely had me pulling out records I have not listened to, much less thought about, in about twenty years.


RIPPLE ROCK #1
$8 ppd., 6” x 8”, copied with 3-D cover, 76pgs.
By Daryl Gussin

To celebrate the first year of Jesse’s radio show (called Ripple Rock), he decided to transcribe ten of the twenty-five interviews he conducted and release them as a big ol’ pretty-looking zine.


RECKLESS CHANTS #19
$4 + postage, 8½” x 5½” copied, 68 pgs.
By Bianca

Visiting old crusty hangouts in Chicago, drinking coffee that has outrageous flavors (coconut mocha?!), and watching as Rust Belt Jessie maneuvers through her expansive corner of the Midwest punk scene, I fully felt that I was living the life of another person.


READ ONCE AND DESTROY: A COMPILATION
$4.00 4¼” x 4¼” photocopied, 60 pgs.
By Simon Sotelo

Most of her stories in this zine revolved around her angst and troubles with mental illness, which isn’t the freshest theme for a zine but the stories are lovely and well written.


PSYCHO.MOTO ZINE #20
$?, 8 ½” x 11”, full color photocopied, 14 pgs.
By Steve Hart

In this issue of Psycho.Moto Zine, they tackle a variety of issues that happen at work—farts in high-rise elevators, shitty office jobs, and a list of lame jobs.


PSYCHO.MOTO ZINE #19
$?, 8 ½” x 11”, full color photocopied, 22 pgs.
By Steve Hart

This is the monster issue which covers zombies, vampires, and aliens. The fictional story of Prince Iluntasuna, by Patrick Craig, is especially well-written.


PSYCHO.MOTO ZINE #18
$? 8 ½” x 11”, full color photocopied, 22 pgs.
By Steve Hart

This is the “Stripped Down” issue, and stories of strippers and strip clubs feature heavily. I’d like to say something positive, but there wasn’t anything that I found compelling in this issue.


MUSIC MAGAZINE #1
$7, 8 ½” x 5½” glossy/perfect bound, 42 pgs.
By Bianca

This is definitely the most eclectic music zine I’ve ever read. Where else will you read an interview with the drummer from Semisonic, Naked Eyes, and a review of the Breeders’ LSXX?


MAXIMUMROCKNROLL #364
$4, 8 ¼ x 10 ¾”, newsprint, 128 pgs.
By Garrett Barnwell

Yay! The new issue of MRR, packed full of the stuff you have come to expect from them: record, zine and book reviews aplenty along with insightful interviews with RAD, Trashies, and Last Chaos, among others.


MAXIMUM ROCKNROLL #363
$4, 8½ x 11”, newsprint, 128 pgs.
By Camylle Reynolds

MRR usually gives a good balance of viewpoints for all things punk, and this issue does not disappoint. Damn good stuff.


LES CARNETS de RASTOPOPOULOS #2
$?, 9”x 12”, photocopied, 16 pgs.
By Steve Hart

The author of Les Carnets had a stable of pen pals from twenty-five years ago, and in this issue (and the previous one), he describes the process of finding the people he corresponded with...


JERK STORE #12
$?, 8 ½” x 11”, printed, 50 pgs.
By Steve Hart

Jam-packed with interviews, reviews, and high-resolution photos, Jerk Store #12 is an essential read.


I AM MY OWN STEREOTYPE: THE MY SMALL DIARY COLLECTION
$5, 8½” x 5½” perfect bound, 112 pgs.
By Bianca

If one of these things happened to me, it wouldn’t give me pause but because it’s happening to someone else, I am reminded that the everyday is awesome. This collection is great for someone who’s thinking about starting their own diary comic.


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.
