FLUORAZINE #1, free, 5½” x 8½”, copied, 24 pgs.

Zine done from someone incarcerated, which means resources were pretty limited. So you’ve got a lot of cut and past collage work and a few song lyrics, comics, and mini-essays all written in ballpoint pen. All told, it comes across as that very familiar first issue that many of us have put out in our experiments with zines. Like most first issues, it’s super thin on content, and I’d really urge the author to spend some time drumming up some solid stuff, be it art, essays, whatever. As someone in the prison system, he’s in a unique position to inform a ton of us about something that I’m personally pretty ignorant of, but would really be interested in learning more about. But hey, collages are cool, too. Here’s hoping he sticks with it. –Keith Rosson (Kristopher Storey, 26731-018 FMC, PO Box 14500, Lexington, KY 40512)
