SPIDDER #18, 5½” x 8½”, 24 pgs.

Aug 16, 2017

A smattering of comics, prose, and interviews in a neat twenty-page package. The comics were cute enough and eye catching enough to be satisfactory. Really, my biggest problem with this zine was the font size. I’m getting to be an old man now, and back in the early two thousands, I could read such a tiny text size and not strain my wrinkled old person brain. Now, I struggle to keep the words straight. I cannot condemn Spidder for this, but it did hinder my enjoyment. I think adding a little space between lines in the prose would improve the page composition significantly. Beyond that, it’s a decent enough read. Also a fun interview with Your Pest Band is in here. –Bryan Static (Arkam, 1925 Hwy 69 South, Savannah, TN 38372, arkamrecords.net)
