After a long absence, the second edition of Chase Kamp's The Complete Speculative Red Hot Chili Peppers Fan Fiction is finally here. TCSRHCPFF is 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. Within: "Red Hot Chili Parents," "Rick Rubin's Mansion," and "Retired Hot Chili Peppers," culminating at the end into something truly unexpected...[ continued ]

In her short illustrated essay A Few Good Boys, M. Sabine Rear writes about growing up surrounded by art from straight white men and the hoops she had to go through to relate to it. She also writes about the men she holds onto, and her dread that they might one day be revealed as monsters.

From one of the most amazing, bizarre, and low-budget cult television shows every made, Tyler Hauck chronicles some pretty sincere life lessons. Perhaps showing, in much the same way that Mystery Science Theater 3000 did, that "You don't have to just swallow media," but can use (even the best media) as a jumping off point into some form of greater understanding.

Lessons are interspersed with "Best of" and "Worst of" lists, plenty of stills from the show, and more...[ 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 ]
