52 pages, half-letter size.

Synopsis: The year is 2024 and the Red Hot Chili Peppers prepare to make their grandest musical statement yet—but is it already too late?

In Modern Candor, artist Lenae Day (Day Magazine) uses herself as a model and restages images from the '60s. The stories that accompany them are autobiographical, amusing, strange, and often seem straight out of an old magazine. Placing herself in the past as a way of understanding the present, Lenae Day has created an amazing piece of entertaining social commentary...[ continued ]

In My Complicated Relationship With Food, Zach discusses his unusual relationship with food by reviewing a variety of (seemingly) simple and common foods. What comes out is uncommonly hilarious and fascinating.

And any zine that starts by saying, "I have weird thoughts about food. I am well aware that many of my ideas are ridiculous and probably wrong" is bound to be something special...[ continued ]
