If you’ve been around the zine scene for a little while, you’ve undoubtedly come across something Liz Mason wrote. She’s a frequent contributor to Xerography Debt and always has a few zines going, all uniformly rad. In her newest issue of Caboose, Liz details her time on jury duty. She explores her preconceptions about the civil service and her frame of mind approaching it. Liz takes copious notes during the trial and is shocked to find that she’s the only juror who takes the duty seriously. This leads to an overall rumination about the American justice system. Her tone is always friendly and inviting, which makes her frank discussion even more impactful as she peels back layers of the proverbial onion. Always a joy to read something new by Liz. –Michael T.
