FLUKE #17, $5 ppd., 5½” x 8½”, printed, 52 pgs.

Matthew Thompson’s long-running zine is back with another great issue. Every issue of Fluke includes some Venn diagram of skating, street art, local punk coverage, and excellent writing from people in the punk scene. The local focus on Matt’s hometown of Little Rock is in full effect here, with an interview with artist Nate Powell, also of Soophie Nun Squad. (The accompanying Little Rock scene family tree alone is worth the price of admission.) Matt also interviews the folks behind the skate mag archiving project undertaken by the Look Back Library, and Nxoeed interviews fellow artist Danny Martin. Essays and poetry round things out. Fluke is always a standout in my review pile. What are you waiting for? –Michael T. Fournier (bit.ly/fluke17)
