SPIDDER #18, $?, 5½” x 8½”, copied, 26 pgs.

Train hopping, campfires, truck stops, and cowboys. This is the meat of Spidder. While the zine itself does veer off into cutesy comics and a random interview with Your Pest Band from Japan, the stand outs of this issue are the illustrations of the lonesome prairie, cowboys, and a short story about train hopping and truck stops. Written like it came straight from the mouth of a Southerner, I got a real feel of life on the road—the ups and downs of what the author calls, “Wild America”. –Tricia Ramos (Spidder, 1925 Highway 69 South, Savannah, TN, 38372)
