Zines

A handy saxophone how-to guide that provides you with new playing positions to liven up your sax life. Written by sax machine Joe DeGeorge, of bands such as Harry and the Potters & the Downtown Boys.

Hand-written text with illustration throughout. 16 pages, half-letter size.

A highly enjoyable series of comics adapted from music biographies. Within: Bob Dylan's makeshift Blood on the Tracks backing band, Kurt & Courtney's mac-and-cheese trials, John & Yoko's primal scream therapy, John Coltrane being a good guy, Mike Watt wearing a pumpkin on his head, the feuds of J Mascis & Lou Barlow, and Kristin Hersh's evil self.

40 pages, half-letter size...[ continued ]

The second issue of the excellent movies of the 1930s zine, A Great and Terrible Golden Age. Within: a Joan Crawford rich person solo sport montage, Soviet sci-fi, the pompous genius of "the fifth Marx Brother" Margaret Dumont, Greta Garbo's only rom-com, and Ernst Lubitsch galore!

Contributions from Emily Alden Foster, Bethany Simard, Yvonne Li, Emily Parrish, Lindsey Simard, Robert Dynamite, Tessa Brunton, and Joshua James Amberson...[ continued ]

An entire issue of A Great and Terrible Golden Age dedicated to the one-and-only Claudette Colbert. Essays and comics about her controversial (and motion picture industry-altering) boobs in Cecil B. DeMille's 1932 film The Sign of the Cross and her year of ruling Hollywood (1934) when she made It Happened One Night, Cleopatra, Four Frightened People, and Imitation of Life...[ continued ]

Ten zinesters talk about an album they love. From The Wipers to The Breeders, Elton John to Ol' Dirty Bastard. With great pieces from Billy McCall (Last Night at the Casino), Katie Haegele (The La-La Theory), and Ed Tillman (Manfiesto). My personal favorite: a delve into five forgotten '90s soundtracks.

I F#cking Love This Album is a quick, fun, and affordable read that has a charming made-on-a-word-processing-program-in-1994 aesthetic...[ continued ]

Mixing biography, graphic novel, history, and memoir, Annie Murphy creates a completely unique and fascinating journey through the life of 19th century spiritualist Ascha Sprague and beyond. Alison Bechdel (Fun Home) called it "a masterful hybrid work." Possibly one of the most stunning comic zines ever made.

60 pages, half-legal size.

A split zine with one side being dedicated to anecdotal stories of loving Lou Reed (R.I.P.!) in the '70s and the other being about falling in love with the Violent Femmes in 1990. Also within: concert reviews, a giant Violent Femmes crossword, and Favorite Movies About Punx comics.

28 pages, half-letter size.

Last two copies! In their first issue since their Drag City anthology, The Lowbrow Reader brings us new writing from Rick Moranis, cartoons by Gilbert Gottfried, an essay about filming Easy Money with Rodney Dangerfield, bizarre comic book history, and a career-spanning essay on the aforementioned cartoonist that goes to unexpected places. Also within: Partying with Harry Nilsson...[ continued ]

Temporary Sale! Simon Moreton's Minor Leagues #1 is a quiet ride through a few countries, travels on foot, video rentals, and a twenty year old snowball fight. Told through comics, sketches, poems, and prose vignettes. Its subtle moments adding up to an interesting tone, a curious lingering feeling.
