ZINE CUISINE #4, $4, 5½” x 8½”, copied, 32 pgs.

Hey, here’s another offering by Zine Cuisine on the topic of winter in L.A. with the coolest artists in the area. I swear that was not supposed to be a pun or anything. It’s got some great stories like the one by Ari that’s a boundless comic on the troubles of gifts. It’s not a new topic but the art style, humor, and fixation with My Super Ex-Girlfriend makes it memorable. There’s also this Whodunit? a la The Thing that has diarrhea jokes. I’m a sucker for diarrhea jokes. It’s poop jokes for someone with fine taste. Some artworks are a little confusing, narratively, but this is a great anthology nonetheless with lots of great stories.
