Zines

The best zine I've read this year. Vignettes about slowly figuring out life alongside boys: First zine, first tattoo, first out-of-town show, first basement punk show, carrying a teething baby in Helsinki, hopping in a tour van, and what it feels like to be a joyous rusted relic on the dance floor.

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

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!

Contributions from Emily Alden Foster, Bethany Simard, Yvonne Li, Emily Parrish, Lindsey Simard, Robert Dynamite, Tessa Brunton, and Joshua James Amberson...[ continued ]

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 ]

Last copy! Grub is, as Cherry Styles calls it, "a scrapbook." It's a broad take on food and feelings, politics and potions, from a wide array of contributors. It's packed with essays, comics, poems, and plenty of recipes. Some highlights: drinking coffee with a Greek grandma, life as a Portuguese vegan, the metaphorical power of food and the body, the perfect M.F.K. Fisher quote. 

With contributions from: Brigid Elva, Bunny Michael, Joana Matias, SBTL CLNG, Rebecca May Johnson, Aimee Herman, Francesca Kritikos, Stevie Mackenzie Smith, Alicia Rodriguez, Jessica Mendham, Saffa Kahn, Francesca Riley, Beth Maiden, Julian Bradley, Craig Pollard, Lucy Dearlove, and Ben McDonald...[ continued ]

Hedwig Lives: The Complete Collection of Fan Theories that Proves Harry Potter's Owl Still Lives is the best Harry Potter conspiracy theory zine around.

In The Hid Are Out, Noah D. writes about growing up in Dayton, Ohio in the '90s and discovering fellow Dayton natives The Breeders. Told through short personal stories, the zine is a heartfelt tribute to the band and an example of how music can change the course of a person's life.

Coming out of the ever-burnt out depths of festival culture, this is the fifth volume of everyone’s favorite field guide to the modern incarnations of the hippie. A wide array of breeds are described in detail, for easy identification: the Millenial Tie-Dye, the Crystal Children Cartel, the Adolescent Firetroll, the Free Range Saxophonist, and many more.

Last two copies before it goes out of print for good! 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...[ continued ]
