EAST VILLAGE INKY, THE, #63: SPORTS ISSUE, $3, 4¼” x 5½”, 40pgs.

Jul 20, 2021

This is the sports issue of what seems like a long-running mostly-perzine outta NYC. (I was unfamiliar before getting this in the mail.) This being an issue on a theme, I may be missing some background information, but anyhow, this issue details the author’s encounters with just about every sport I know of. Being unathletic myself, the author’s tales of various trials and tribulations, especially as a youngster, resonated with my own childhood sports mishaps. I admire people for whom you look at their handwritten zine and have to wonder for a couple minutes if they have a custom font or just really neat penmanship, and I like the illustrative style to boot! –jimmy cooper (Ayun Halliday, 1270 5th Ave. 7D, NYC, NY 10019, [email protected], etsy.com/shop/ayun)
