Temporary sale! The new issue of Black Tea is a mixtape of Jason Martin's comics from recent years. Within: good-deed tollbooths, dumb bottle caps, a friend's pet peeve, a favorite coworker at the library, a dead baby deer, the computer simulation that life might be, a tribute to San Francisco's Aquarius Records, and a really sweet one about a childhood business card collection...[ continued ]

An exploration of the body, one part at a time, by Tomas Moniz. Written as poems, but reading more like vignettes or small essays about how complicated it is just to exist in your own frame. These pieces are sweet, emotionally heavy, sexy, and sometimes really funny. They are so honest that it leaves you wishing for that same openness in yourself, to be so unashamed of what we carry around and what we desire...[ continued ]

In this issue of Brainscan, Alex Wrekk (Stolen Sharpie Revolution) discusses the individualized witchcraft practice she's pieced together over the past decade. While documenting her journey, she looks at a variety of other witchcraft traditions, why they didn't fully work for her, and why secular witchcraft is just as valid as any other form. She also gives plenty of history and context to help understand terms that often get lumped together (Wicca, Pagan, etc), and critiques the cultural appropriation and consumerism that often arise in modern witchcraft manifestations...[ continued ]

In the wake of the controversy surrounding a recent viral article about spending a week "becoming a witch," Alex considers what her guide to a witchcraft practice would look like. The results are a day-by-day guide to trying out her particular variety of secular witchcraft (that she lovingly refers to as "DIY witchery").

Within: cleaning-as-cleansing, everyday altars, grounding and centering, perception and animism, correspondences, sigils, spells, divination, and more...[ continued ]

In Caboose #10, zine limunary Liz Mason explores the world of transcendental meditation. The zine is an adventure through her discovery process, taking her into nondescript offices and tiny rooms full of fruit and hankies.

The latest issue of Caboose is a personal story of serving as a juror on a medical malpractice suit. As usual, Liz Mason's playful, endlessly curious take on the world makes this a ride worth taking. A peek into the court system through the eyes of this long-running zine-star.

Last copy! Clock Tower Nine has become one of my new favorite zines. Using a variety-format approach reminiscent of classic '90s zines, Danny Noonan puts together a consistently interesting assortment. Letters, postcards, and the stories of others mix with personal narratives, odd facts, and ephemera.

This issue largely consists of a story about being a roadie for a band, an intercontinental fast friendship through postcards and drunk dials, and a barely-planned cross-country road trip...[ continued ]
