Wow! This one’s a ride. The Story of My Scab comes with a ton of buttons and stickers, and a personalized LP-sized painting, one of which apparently accompanies every order and is limited, you guessed it, to sixty-nine. Not sure about what back issues are like, but this one is a collection of William’s art. It reminds me a lot of John Mejias’s (Paping zine) work. While it shows a decent array of styles—whether it be a faithful, full-page rendition of a Public Enemy cassette, or sixty or seventy small, intricate, cartoonish drawings of people’s faces—there’s an underlying similarity throughout. Each page is dense with art, and I’m more than a little convinced that William’s kind of a genius. This is really cool. –Keith Rosson (William, [email protected])
