IT WILL ALL MAKE SENSE TOMORROW #2
$2, 5 ½” x 8 ½”, photocopied, 14 pgs.
By Todd Taylor

Totally charming comic zine about punks over thirty having a bit of a crisis.


HARDCORE ANACHRONISTIC ASSEMBLY Vol. 1
copied, 5½” x 8½”, 44 pgs.
By CT Terry

HEY DO YOU WANT TO READ SOME BAND INTERVIEWS IN ALL CAPS WITH HARDLY ANY BREAKS?


GENERAL SPEECH OMNIBUS #1
$6 / €7/¥700, 8½” x 11”, photocopied, 28 pgs.
By Bianca

Born out of the writer’s simultaneous discontent with his local punk scene and inability to understand why some of his favorite hardcore bands were being largely ignored.


FREE STATE #2
$?, 8½” x 11”, photocopied, 66 pgs.
By Paul J. Comeau

Free State is one of the best zines documenting a local music scene I’ve had the pleasure of coming across.


FAIR DIG #2
5 ½” x 8 ½”, photocopied, 30 pgs.
By Todd Taylor

Coming off an injury, Brodie joins a CrossFit gym, embraces zine culture, makes meaningful connections with fellow artists, establishes associations to fitness and DIY culture and… still hasn’t figured it all out or found a happiness beyond brief flashes of real joy.


EXPLODING BUFFALO, Vol. 1, Issue VI
photocopied, 5 ½” x 8 ½”, 35 pgs.
By Todd Taylor

This is the “Sexuality” issue and in the middle is a pop-up penis cutout which is hand-glued. It is the star of this issue.


DRAFT DODGER #1
Newsprint, 8½” x 11”, 56 pgs.
By CT Terry

The young rebel coming of age stories add a sense of newness and idealism to an already cool project.


DRAFT DODGER #1
free, 8½” x 11”, newsprint, 56 pgs.
By Keith Rosson

Solid music zine in the tradition of MRR, Heartattack, Give Me Back, Razorcake, etc. Newsprint, excellent photos, consistently smart layout, and solid writing.


CATS HATE COPS
$? 5½” x 7½” photocopied, 64 pgs.
By Simon Sotelo

This zine is a compilation of news reports about cats that attack cops, from 1805-2012.


BENEATH THE SAME SKY
?$, 5” x 8 ½”, copied, 8 pgs.
By Dave Brainwreck

Folded-over one sheet about a Japanese post-hardcore and screamo scene I know absolutely nothing about (except the stuff about it I read just now).


BEING UGLY MAKES YOU STUPID
copied, 5 ½” x 8 ½”, 36 pgs.
By CT Terry

Dark, photocopied photos of bands and people hanging out at shows, collaged over an assortment of backgrounds.


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?
