TRASH BABIES 2, $8, 7”x 8½”, risograph, 50 pgs.

Got this giant green bad boy in Texas at the Houston Zine Fest. This baby is thick as hell and I purchased it immediately after I flipped through it and saw some gross, weird, furry-type thing. I dig it. This is a trash-themed zine (hell yeah!). That’s another reason I got it, since we are all trash people. There are a multitude of talented people in this issue of Trash Babies, though this is the only issue I’ve owned or seen. Each artist has a different identity in their imagery and work, from cute to fucking disgusting. It’s exactly my kind of thing, for I am also cute and gross. It’s great to see a collection that seamlessly puts together “outsider” artists with “traditional” artists. –Iggy Nicklbottum (Various, arfranklinstein.storenvy.com)
