NOT IT, $3, 5½” x 8”, laser, 16 pgs.

Sep 29, 2020

A title and cover parody of Alexa Chung’s It, Not It, is a perzine by local comic writer Alex Chung who frequently gets tweeted at from Alexa Chung fans. It’s not about that at all, mind you, it’s a legit perzine of a dude who lives his life in the comics genre as a fan. Its stories range from uncomfortableness, to pettiness turned to appreciation, to my favorite thing ever: making fun of nerds. Perzines can be quite dry and boring, but this quick perzine was entertaining and quite well-written. The best stories were the one about the annoying, stoned nerd and the one about how he wanted to buy a leather jacket because of Cyclops from ’90s X-Men. Buy pleather, man. It’s cheaper. –Iggy Nicklbottum (Alex Chung, instagram.com/alexchung)
