TRUST #199, €3.50, offset, 8” x 11¼”, 64 pgs.

The German-language publication Trust is one of the longest-running zines in the world, having recently celebrated their 200th issue with a big fest in February of 2020. I don’t speak German, so I can’t read it, except for one English-language review of the Akashic Fugazi book redux. Laid out beautifully like Razorcake, it’s packed with columns, articles, comics, and reviews. Notably, many of the records discussed don’t have North American distribution. This issue’s contents include coverage of Flipper, The Coathangers, the bourgeoning German political party known as the Party of Humanists, and much more. Major congrats are in order for reaching two hundred issues! –Art Ettinger (Trust, Postfach 11 07 62, 28087 Bremen, Germany)
