Last two copies! In this issue, Mark recalls figuring out the debilitating effects of his bladder issues when he goes to college and, for the first time, navigates living in dorms, drinking at college-town bars, and hooking-up. 

As he writes, "At a time when young people are supposed to be finding themselves and becoming adults, I spent my four years avoiding social gatherings. I kept myself from starting and maintaining relationships...I made friends and constantly lied to them about my whereabouts."

28 pages, quarter-size.

In this issue: searching out acceptable bathrooms while on the road, not urinating for ten hours while in the air, and a bathroom-by-bathroom diary of experiences.

32 pages, quarter-size.

In this issue, Mark reaches out, looking for help, and is met with a less-than-sympathetic medical system. Within: clueless medical professionals, almost losing a job over a urinalysis, and finally finding someone who understands.

32 pages, quarter-size.

Last two copies! ​​​​​​​The dating issue of The Paruretic covers how Mark handled (or avoided handling) dating in high school and college. It's a chronicle of, as Mark says, "how my shy bladder has driven every part of my love life."

Two poetry zines in one by Tomas Moniz. In A Poetic Theory of Plate Tectonics, he looks at bodies in relation to the various movements of the earth. And in A Reclamation of Manhood, he looks at past joys and mistakes in an attempt to unlearn the socialized expectations of what manhood and fatherhood looks like.

With art from Ajuan Mance, Robert Liu-Trujillo, and Alicia Dornadic.

36 pages, half-letter size.

This compilation zine seeks to "usher skin conditions into the greater body acceptance conversation." Within, a dozen writers and artists discuss and represent their trials with their skin and a world that wants to comment on, advise, and critique.

As editor Alyssa Giannini writes, "Well-meaning people who have never dealt with chronic skin conditions look upon a poor complexion as a personal failure." Problem Skin Zine seeks to change to that.
