Zines

A buffet of wildly different work from cartoonists, essayists, poets, and illustrators. With contributions from some of our faves: Jeff Miller (Ghost Pine) on the childhood confusion caused by a Sex Pistols tape, comic artist John Porcellino (King Cat Comics) on hidden creeks, Cherry Styles (Synchronise Witches Press) on natural skin care, and comic artist Jason Martin (Black Tea) on underrated albums...[ continued ]

Temporary sale! 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 ]

Dug up from the out-of-print depths, this classic zine is a perfect gathering of Moe Bowstern's words in one place. Taking pieces previously published in other zines (including some of the '90s greats like Nosedive and Mudflap), Second Set Out has stories that never made it to the pages of her legendary Xtra Tuf zine. Within: fishing boat adventures, hitchhiking tales, an abortion story, the praises for long-distance bus travel, and so much more...[ continued ]

Shotgun Seamstress #8 covers so much territory. Thoughts on imperfect heroes and the way that slogans can't sum up systematic oppression. Broadside-esque pages on punk activism, Alli Lowe of The Atomic Tanlines, and Neil deGrasse Tyson.

Interviews with Afrofuturist Wizard Apprentice, Marc Edwards of Cellular Chaos, horror movie actress Geretta Geretta, and Monika Estrella Negra on Chicago's black and brown punk shows...[ continued ]

Taking his long-running Paper Radio/Signals zine in a new direction, Tin Can Telephone is DJ Frederick's brand new variety zine. Spanning from personal stories to book reviews and a 1964 hometown murder mystery, it's a fascinating ride. Plus: 40 years of concerts in New Hampshire, in review form (including Cocteau Twins and Odetta!).

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

In praise of growing old, Manos: Hands of Fate, and interviews with cassette solo piano artist Nick Keeling and shortwave radio host Captain Ron.

16 pages, half-letter size.

Another issue of historic lost oddities and present realities. Within: almost-forgotten technologies, Doctor Who spin-offs, an interview with the musician Newfoundman and a great interview with musician C. Worth on how to simultaneously push against and embrace technology. The highlight: a short history of cardboard cut-out cereal-box records of the 1960s and '70s.

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

In this issue of Tin Can Telephone's delves into the obscure: an in-depth of '60s Doctor Who novelty records, a primer on library music, interviews with Unread Records and Andy Rench, zine reviews, great photos. It's always such a treat.

28 pages, half-letter size.
