I EAT YOUR ASS, $3, 5½” x 8½”, 16 pgs.

Artist Veek’s zine is a mix of Kardashian-influenced societal ass fixation, meets going to the club, meets aliens. The title of the zine makes you think what you get is what you see—and you do—but with a twist. A little bit of seduction, a whole lot of alien abduction. This zine had me laughing so much, because the language and imagery are so good. I describe the artistry as that of a K-8 school D.A.R.E. calendar contest winner, which is a compliment. My friends told me this was a vague reference, and they think only my school district did this, but if you saw the images you would get it, and it rules. The characters have enlarged eyes and other features, and it looks to be drawn in a mix of different markers and colored pencil, which really enhances the storyline. –Cynthia Pinedo (Veek, etsy.com/shop/TheVeekBoutique, @veek1313)
