STOWAWAYS, THE #17, $2-$3, 5 ½” x 8 ½”, copied, 18 pgs.

The Stowaways is back after a four-year hiatus while Christopher finished college and did two years of service in the Peace Corps. This issue consists of show reviews and interviews, some of which he wrote before this stuff happened. Unfortunately, this comeback left something to be desired. The interviews were solid and in-depth, but the show reviews were a little bland in a “they were amazing” kind of way (and I’m not a big fan of show reviews as it is). I’ve enjoyed Christopher’s writing in Razorcake and earlier issues of The Stowaways, but this one was a bit disappointing. –Craven Rock (The Stowaways, 960 E. Bonita Ave. Unit #120, Pomona, CA 91767)
