Jul 20, 2021

I tracked down the second issue of Demystification last summer and was floored by its energy, passion, and humor. This third issue keeps the ball rolling. First of all, the printing here is gorgeous throughout—this fanzine is no joke! And the voices of the two editors shine through in their prose and articles—Paula is involved in the art scene and interviews painters, shoe designers, and sculptors. Ambrose’s focus is more hardcore: the forty-plus pages she put together about the history of the Hooded Mosher is totally bonkers, featuring interviews with folks from Side By Side and Turning Point, artists, and more. A zine like this with a fresh perspective doesn’t come around often. So great. –Michael T. Fournier (
