Full-color comic anthology put together by a handful of folks neck-deep in skinhead culture. Lot of comics about fighting, getting fucked up, punching bikers, shoulder-tapping for beer, and running from cops. I get that these things are often a lot more exciting to make comics about than, “We sat around listening to records and drinking beer!” but it eventually reads as a little repetitive. Still, this is clearly a labor of love, and I can’t imagine the amount of effort that went into compiling all this. Also comes with a Liquidators 7”, some ska/soul stuff recorded in 1990 that’s pretty fantastic. Seems a little steep, price-wise, but if you’re into this genre, there’s a ton of stuff to like here. –Keith Rosson (Pirates Press, 1260 Powell St., Emeryville, CA 94608)
