Zines

A deep-dive into the animated television show BoJack Horseman, by way of personal essays, comics, tarot, and interviews.

Within: alcoholism, international fandom, the history of screwball comedies, unlikeable cartoon women, absurdism, representation in voice acting, the power of Lisa Hanawalt, and much more. For fans, as well as those who can't understand what there is to love in a cartoon about addiction and depression. 

With words from: Joshua James Amberson, Timothy Day, Jessica Fonvergne, Lauren Hobson, Tessa Livingstone, M.L. Schepps, Jourdain Searles, and Molly E. Simas. Plus an interview with Leca from BoJack Hidden Jokes

Illustrations from: Eileen Chavez, Ross Jackson, Naomi Marshall, and Liz Yerby. Cover and back cover art by Sarah Mirk.

John Porcellino's King-Cat Comics is an absolute feel-good joy. And King-Cat has been such a joy for over 30 years now. (How we waited this long to pick it up is a mystery, and we apologize.) In issue 79 there are science club comics, night poem comics, cub scout comics, record store memories from the 1980s, a really sweet road trip comic, and a really special one about discovering zines for the first time.

Also: a comic from Gabrielle Bell, letters (and drawings) to the editor from David Lasky and Chester Brown, a top forty, so much more.

36 pages, half-letter size.

Holy cow, it's the 80th issue of King-Cat Comics and Stories! John Porcellino's comics are the sweetest and are, at this moment, the perfect way to let your mind go to a place outside the news cycle.

Within: courthouse weddings, dog adoptions, bird watching, nature notes, a dream list, a dog and cat toy inventory, and so much more. 

40 pages, half-letter size.

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.

We always love Minor Leagues, U.K. comic artist/graphic memoirist Simon Moreton's ongoing zine series. Dreamy fluid comic art, solid prose, collaged bits and pieces, a fun variety show of a zine. In this issue: notes from America, birdwatching, topographies, wallpaper, foxes, home. 

64 pages, full magazine size.

​Last two copies! Through minimalist comics and sketches, this issue of Minor Leagues confronts loss while also managing to incorporate playful vignettes and letters from readers. A continually one-of-a-kind zine.

60 pages, half-letter size.
