EARTH FIRST! BRIGID 2014
$6.50, 8½” x 11”, glossy cover, 57 pgs.
By James Meier

Earth First brings you news on all things environmental going on around the world, and also acts as a forum that anyone can write into and have a chance to get published.




CURING CANCER #1
$?, 5½” x 8½”, copied, 44 pgs.
By Bryan Static

Despite the Germs reference on the cover, most of this book’s humor comes from science references, puns, and nerd trivia. Kind of like XKCD. Half of the pages were blank, and the commentary for the comics was longer than the comics themselves. GRADE: C-.


CABILDO QUARTERLY #6
$1, 11” x 17”, copied, 2 pgs.
By Kurt Morris

The sixth issue of this literary rag is still two pages. There are a number of poems and a story by Jeff Schroeck of the band Black Wine....  This is coming along well.


AS YOU WERE: A PUNK COMIX ANTHOLOGY: #3
$10, 5 ½” x 7 ½”, offset with cardstock cover, 112 pgs.
By Ashley

The entries featured are snapshots into the lives of each contributor. While some comics do this more literally than others, each is truly personal.... This collection has something for everyone; a great addition on any bookshelf.


ANIMALIA #1
$2, 8½” x 5½”, copied, 28 pgs.
By Lisa Weiss

The first story is young adult fiction gone horribly wrong. The other two have a strong social satire component. It’s what I would imagine Jonathan Swift would write if he watched a lot of sci-fi/horror movies.


TALES FROM THE WILL
$?, 5 ½” x 8 ½”, copied, 16 pgs.
By MP Johnson

This zine is essentially a lyric book for New York horror punk band The Will. I did not know that before I read it, so I processed it as a poetry zine, but with poetry about one of my favorite subjects: horror movies.


STOWAWAYS, THE #15
$2, 8 ½” x 11”, copied, 20 pgs.
By CT Terry

A guy’s life, mainly told through the shows that he goes to. It’s all there, from packed fest to empty room.


SHORT FAST & LOUD #27
$?, 8 ½” x 11”, newsprint, 64 pgs.
By CT Terry

Rad newsprint zine that appears to be run by survivors of the ‘90s powerviolence scene.


SAL SI PUEDES #4
$?, 8 ½” x 11”, glossy, 72 pgs.
By CT Terry

Double issue of a glossy zine about life in City Terrace, East L.A. Between the full-page neighborhood portraits are rambling writings, including an affecting tale of long-term angel dust abuse in the writer’s family.


RUBBERNECK #7
$5, 8 ½” x 11”, printed, 40 pgs.
By Dave Brainwreck

Professional, often staged shots of bands and musicians. Fairly heavy on the contemporary garage scene.


RENATE #19
€6.45, 8 ½” x 11”, copied, 24 pgs.
By Dave Brainwreck

The theme of this German-based international comics anthology is the “end of the teenage years.”


RADVOCATE, THE v. 2, #11
$2, 5 ½” x 8 ½”, copied, 40 pgs.
By Bianca

This zine is also “an unsponsored platform for writers, artists, and poets to submit their work to,” but advertising themselves as a spot for non-pros does not translate into a sub-par zine.


RABBIT, RABBIT, RABBIT #2
$2, 5 ½” x 8 ½”, copied, 36 pgs.
By Keith Rosson

Inspired, jazzed-up zine from a guy in rural Wisconsin who frequently makes the trek to Milwaukee.


PROFANE EXISTENCE #64
$2 U.S. ppd., $4 Can. ppd., 11 ½” x 17”, newsprint, 36 pgs.
By Indiana Laub

Nearly forty pages’ worth of assorted content collected from the Profane Existence blog—all of the columns and interviews herein were originally published online in 2012 or 2013.


PA’ PALENQUE
$?, 2 ¾” x 4 ½”, copied, 8 pgs.
By Keith Rosson

Little one-page foldout zine about a band called Sexteto Tabalà. They live in a tiny little town in Columbia and play a blend of Cuban and Afro Columbian music.


MAXIMUM TREMOLO #1
$2 ppd., 5 ½” x 8 ½”, copied, 16 pgs.
By Alanna Why

With the tagline “Making surf a fucking threat again,” this fanzine passionately covers obscure surf bands both live and recorded.


LUNA IN TUNA #7
$2 or trade, 5 ½” x 8 ½”, copied, 12 pgs.
By Bianca

Reena’s zine is a perzine in the sense that you get a really good idea of the kind of person she is when you’re done reading, but instead of being done through direct “This is my life” tales (though there are a couple interludes of that nature), the reader learns about the author mostly through top ten lists.


JERK STORE #13
$?, 5 ½” x 8 ¼”, copied, 32 pgs.
By Daryl Gussin

You can always depend onJerk Store to follow through. Both in its approach to music, and its attention to detail. Do you like CBDS and The Partisans? If so, this zine is waiting for you.


HARD FIFTY FARM, THE #2
$4.50, 5” x 8 ½”, printed, 36 pgs.
By Dave Brainwreck

Jessie Dukes is a naturally talented writer whose style matches her content—classically sentimental, clear, and melancholic prose concerning a group of people who have taken to the land in Kansas.


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.
