One of the best zines around finally gets the book it deserves. A best-of collection that has some amazing pieces from the first five years of Rad Dad. Well-known names like Ian MacKaye, Cory Doctorow, Jeff Chang, Steve Almond are included within, next to many other inspiring radical parents, with editor Tomas Moniz at the helm—constantly reminding the reader to get inspired by life and to see how we teach and treat children as a radical act...[ continued ]

An exploration of the body, one part at a time, by Tomas Moniz. Written as poems, but reading more like vignettes or small essays about how complicated it is just to exist in your own frame. These pieces are sweet, emotionally heavy, sexy, and sometimes really funny. They are so honest that it leaves you wishing for that same openness in yourself, to be so unashamed of what we carry around and what we desire...[ continued ]

With a deep well of humanity beneath it and a propelling force behind it, Bellies and Buffalos takes you on a ride and drops you off feeling healed from the journey. It is sweet and funny and in no way pretentious. With characters so alive, so visceral, you’ll set the book down and feel like you’ve touched each of their bellies.

Tomas Moniz is an expert at being hilarious, tragic, sexy, and profound in a single bound. Even in a single sentence. The poetry and poetic prose in Dirty has so many lines that should be read aloud. Lines that should start conversations. Lines that should make us want to write our own lines. This is a zine to be read over and over again. Highly recommended.

20 pages, quarter-size...[ continued ]

"Rad Families: A Celebration honors the messy, the painful, the playful, the beautiful, the myriad ways we create families. This is not an anthology of experts, or how-to articles on perfect parenting; it often doesn’t even try to provide answers. Instead, the writers strive to be honest and vulnerable in sharing their stories and experiences, their failures and their regrets.

Gathering parents and writers from diverse communities, it explores the process of getting pregnant from trans birth to adoption, grapples with issues of racism and police brutality, probes raising feminists and feminist parenting...[ continued ]

Two poetry zines in one by Tomas Moniz. In A Poetic Theory of Plate Tectonics, he looks at bodies in relation to the various movements of the earth. And in A Reclamation of Manhood, he looks at past joys and mistakes in an attempt to unlearn the socialized expectations of what manhood and fatherhood looks like.

With art from Ajuan Mance, Robert Liu-Trujillo, and Alicia Dornadic...[ continued ]
