CRY ZINE, THE #1: $?, 5½” x 8½”, 38 pgs.

Is it pain that makes you cry? Love lost? When’s the last time you cried? Well, perhaps while reading this zine. Beth Davis’s brainchild Cry Zine is a compilation from different artists on anything related to crying. And the boundaries seem limitless. It varies from excruciatingly intimate details, stories, photos, comics, illustrations, and music, to the most obscure examples, like doing a “cry” search of your email account. At times clever and bizarre, and others just incredibly sad, this zine in enthralling. It should be noted it is in partial color with a terrific layout that’s easy to pick up and read in one sitting or in pieces. –Camylle Reynolds ([email protected])
