Believe it. A gloriously odd collection of interlinked short stories based on the lives and careers of past and present members of the Red Hot Chili Peppers.

Last copy! In this issue, Joshua lets it all out. He just doesn’t care what people think anymore. Cutting, drugs, and his rage against his mom are all out on the table. All within the context of a handy field guide. Space cats, homeschooled floating space heads, and stupid diaper baby aliens are but a few of the aliens you’ll meet.

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!

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 ]

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.

Though The Lowbrow Reader makes itself out to be a low-quality bathroom reader it is, in reality, a one-of-a-kind zine that holds some of the wisest and oddest essays about bygone pop culture and its fringes.

In this issue: famed cartoonist Drew Friedman writes about his love for Shemp Howard of the Three Stooges. Fast Times at Ridgemont High/Clueless director Amy Heckerling digs up a private diary...[ continued ]
