Zines

In an attempt to figure out the last record he would ever sell, Danny Noonan writes the story of a skittish teenager’s discovery of punk that leads him to house shows and eventually a move across the country. It’s a celebration of record stores that spans 25 years and explores the anxiety of youth, the community of punk, and how much it sucks not to be able to find a job when you need it the most...[ continued ]

Cometbus #55 could be looked at two ways: A treatise on growing up without giving up, or proof that even the most dedicated proponent of youth culture grows old. Either way, it’s fascinating. It’s coming from a life in punk, leftist politics, and DIY culture, but you don’t need to be interested in any of that to be interested in the stories he tells.

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

Last copy! Addicting and perfectly bizarre, Cometbus #58 is a story about finding home in a greasy-spoon diner full of combative old-timers. It's a ride full of strangeness and surprises.

The last quarter of the zine is a series of vignettes in tribute to a friend who passed away...[ continued ]

In Masculinities, Cindy Crabb (Doris) explores how we're each individually taught about what masculinity is. The zine focuses on the role models (positive or problematic or often both) who guided that education and how it played out. As she says in her introduction, she wants to "shake [masculinity] up—look at all the varied ways people are taught what it means to be a man, and where they found resistance, examples of other ways to be...[ continued ]

Unlike anything else running today, the Nuts punk fanzine is always a wild ride. And if you just took the crazy-sexy-(cool)-Medusa-witch cover of this issue alone, you would already have one of the most unique things around. This issue is another ridiculously oversized extravaganza. Interviews with Dawn of Humans, Pharmakon, and Nomad. A punk paper that cries over Sinead O'Connor's "Black Boys on Mopeds...[ continued ]
