FYRE ENGINE
$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.


FREAK TENSION #15
$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.


EXPLODING BUFFALO, DREAMS
Free, 8 ½” x 5 ½”, copied, w/glossy cover, 37 pgs.
By Kurt Morris

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.


DREAMS OF DONUTS #19
$?, 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).


COUCHED #1
$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.


BRUTALIST SHIMMY #1
£2.90, 5 ½” x 8 ½”, copied, 24 pgs.
By Keith Rosson

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




BASURA
$?, 8 ½” x 5 ½”, copied, 20 pgs.
By Keith Rosson

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.


BASIC PAPER AIRPLANE #7
$3, 4 ¼” x 5 ½”, copied w/ color cover, 32 pgs.
By Keith Rosson

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.


ACAB #2
$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.


YO, MISS #1: A GRAPHIC LOOK AT HIGH SCHOOL
$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.


TNS RECORDS FREE FANZINE #15
$?, 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.


THINGS AND SUCH
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.


SNAKE PIT: TATTOO STORIES
$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.


PILTDOWNLAD #6: INSTITUTIONALIZED
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.”


LET’S TALK ABOUT SEXTING
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.


LET DOWN #1
$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.


KING-CAT COMICS #74
$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. 


GREATEST CITY IN THE WORLD FANZINE #5
$5ppd., audio cassette, 92 mins.
By Keith Rosson

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.


EXPLODING BUFFALO: THE RELIGION ISSUE
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.


DORIS #30
$3.75, 8 ½” x 7”, copied, 32 pgs.
By Bianca

Doris is the zine that made me realize what a zine could do, how, beyond entertainment, zines could be education. I am always so amazed by the intellect, compassion, and wisdom with which Cindy Crabb examines herself (past and present) and her community.


CABILDO QUARTERLY #5
$1, 11” x 17”, copied, 2 pgs.
By Kurt Morris

This two-sided, large format literary publication features fiction, non-fiction, and poetry.


ZISK #23
7” x 8 ½”, photocopied, 25 pgs.
By John Mule

This Fall, 2013 issue has stories of proposed rule changes, like allowing players to catch the ball in their hat (Why is that illegal?), and the greatest baseball nicknames.


THROAT CULTURE #14
$?, 5 ½” x 8 ½”, copied, 16 pgs.
By Dave Brainwreck

Lots of personality, which is good, because, content-wise, this is basically just the last pages of most zines: the reviews section.
