Zine Reviews

ABORT! #23: 5 ½” x 8 ½”, $2, printed, 44 pgs.

Wow, what a well-written zine! Issue 23 of Abort! is a collection of science-fiction short stories from a variety of authors.

PUNK LIFE #42: 5 ½” x 8 ½”, $2, printed, 33 pgs.

Is there a band that mixes the hocket of Gamelan with punk rock? If so, I want to know where I can hear that band.

ACK ACK ACK #2: $5 ppd., 5 ½” x 8”, photocopied, 40 pgs.

What I like most about Matt’s photos is his ability to transfer electricity; from the ten bands he chooses, to the images of the bands, and into your hands like a jolt.

SATELLITE MEMORIES: 5 ½” x 8 ½”, photocopied, 26 pgs.

If you’re a fan of short fiction, don’t hesitate to get this.

ASHCAN MAGAZINE #3: 8 ½” x 11”, newsprint, $?

The best parts are definitely the comics by Rick Kitagawa, which had me rolling on the ground laughing like a moron.

This zine got me through a long, hot, hungover day.

CINEMA SEWER #23: 6 ¾” x 10”, offset, 44 pgs.

If you need a guide for movies that are beyond the mainstream, something way off the beaten path, I would say Cinema Sewer is a great source.

Documents a bicycle journey made by three friends in 2009 to raise money and awareness for those stricken by Huntington’s disease.
