Have you ever watched a Cronenberg movie and were disgusted? Well, this isn’t as bad but it did give me some weird goose bumps since the main characters in this zine are torsos with eyes instead of breasts, and mouths instead of a belly button. It’s not horrifying like Cronenberg, so I don’t know exactly why I compared it, but you knew exactly what I meant when I said that. The artwork is black ink heavy, as if Dr. Gurlfriend’s pen dripped with manic passion as she inked furiously. The comic zine follows the tour of the band Torsos as they go about being a bunch of weirdos, and their drug-fueled hallucination and adventures! It reminds me of myself, a horrifying Cronenberg scumbag. –Iggy Nicklbottum (Various,
