PUNKS AROUND #14: MENTAL HEALTH, $5 or trade, 5½” x 8½”, copied, 40 pgs.

May 25, 2021

I’ve been wanting to check out Punks Around for a while, especially after reading the editor’s Punk Rock Xmas Carol, so I was happy to get it. Every issue is about a specific topic and #14 is about mental health. It’s a full of contributors talking about their struggles with mental illness and alienation that comes along with it in a in a fucked-up capitalist world. It’s not just writing; there are some cool illustrations and lots of collage pieces. It was the collage I appreciated the most—rendered in full color with bits of poetry in it. I’m bummed the editor, Alex, is hanging up his project after this issue. He says he wants to quit, “before it grows stale.” If #14 suggests anything, there’s little risk of that. –Craven Rock (IG: @punksaround)
