Zines

The issue that started off this amazing, hilarious, zine series. Before the well-played themes of later issues began, they traversed the cinematic spectrum of Road House to Showgirls, Sleepwalkers to The Pick-Up Artist, all in one issue. Well-written and able to appeal to just about everybody.

52 pages, half-letter size.

A fantastic new issue of I Love Bad Movies, the movie review zine that is as hilarious as it is well-written and insightful. This issue’s theme: “Early and Late Roles” or, “Before and After They Were Famous.” It’s kind of brilliant.

The highlight: a wonderful interview with Alex Winter (AKA: Bill S. Preston, Esq., of Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure!) about his role in Death Wish 3 and Charles Bronson's love of bananas...[ continued ]

The first issue of Listen Up! is a fantastic introduction to podcasts for the uninitiated, a guide for those looking to expand their horizons, and a personal story of interacting and connecting with the form over the course of many years. From Portland's own Katie Ash (Aubade zine).

Fun cut-and-paste layout. 24 pages, half-letter size. Block-printed covers.

The second issue of Katie Ash's podcast review and recommendation zine, Listen Up!, is a treat. As always, Katie's passion for these shows leaps off the page and her cut-and-paste layout makes it a joy to read. This issue focuses largely on POC-led podcasts and includes a lot of shows that don't often make recommendation lists. Without a doubt, you'll finish reading and want to put one of these shows on...[ continued ]

Every issue of the My Complicated Relationship With Food zine series is impossibly good. These "reviews of some of the things we put in our mouths" are surprising and bizarre and, after years of between-issue waiting, Volume Four is finally here and well worth the wait.

Within: getting drunk off mouthwash, potato appreciation, trying to define what a sandwich actually is, the case against gelato, and so much more...[ continued ]

In My Complicated Relationship With Food, Zach discusses his unusual relationship with food by reviewing a variety of (seemingly) simple and common foods. What comes out is uncommonly hilarious and fascinating.

And any zine that starts by saying, "I have weird thoughts about food. I am well aware that many of my ideas are ridiculous and probably wrong" is bound to be something special...[ continued ]

Never has a collection of opinions on ordinary foods been so incredibly funny. 

20 pages, quarter size.

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 ]

One large folded sheet of newsprint turns into Brooklyn-by-way-of Olympia's favorite punk paper. Within: Zach from Gas Rag talks about his job, “Rancid” Dave Morse reviews the New York’s Alright Fest, and Gustavo Rivera writes about NYC nightlife. Warthog, S.H.I.T., Gag, and more.

A west coast report, show reviews, comics, photos, and interviews with Nandas, Vanity, and Sheer Mag! All on one large folded sheet of newsprint. Plus: A break-up survival guide insert.
