$10, 7½” x 5”, 72 pgs.
By Bryan Static

A wildly varying collection of comics. Quite a few of them remind me of older comic masters.

$?, 5 ½” x 8 ½”, copied, 24 pgs.
By Dave Brainwreck

This is the “family” issue of a long-running zine springing from the Antagonist Art’s Movement (which highlights new, obscure artists and writers who challenge the mainstream).

$5, 5 ½” x 8”, printed, 24 pgs.
By Daryl Gussin

If you’re not familiar with the work of Marcos Siref, he has an illustration in pretty much ever issue of this zine.

$4, 5 ½” x 8 ½”, copied, 80 pgs.
By Sean Arenas

In the words of Paul Renn: “This zine is about punk rock and skateboarding, that’s it. They are inseparably linked in my mind...”

$2, 5½” x 6”, copied, 36pgs.
By Simon Sotelo

Feedback is a simple comics zine chronicling part of the music scene in Portland, OR through show posters and one-three page comic reenactments.

$?, 5 ½” x 8 ½”, copied, 48 pgs.
By Dave Brainwreck

This is the second installment of Robin’s serial resource both for her own efforts at sobriety as well as anyone else who could use some help.

$2, 5 ½” x 8 ½”, copied, 54 pgs.
By Ashley

Each of the three autobiographical short illustrated stories became whimsical and fun through her detailed, black-line illustrations. I especially liked her punk perspective on movie reviews.

$1 or trade, 4 ¼” x 5 ½”, copied, 9 pgs.
By Craven Rock

A short, short comic of weird characters the author saw driving the bus. It’s humorous but way too short. It consists of nine one-panel pictures then, done.

$5, 5 ½” x 8 ½”, copied, 56 pgs.
By Ashley

Clocking in at fifty-six pages of pure text, Dessaint’s accounts offer a unique perspective to these rideshares that many people forget: the driver’s point of view.

$7-10, 8” x 6”, 68 pgs.
By Bryan Static

You take a playlist of every song you remember being impactful over the course of a year. You take that journal and you illustrate six songs every page, representing a week of your life. Sounds great!

$4, 6 ¼” x 9 ½”, printed, 52 pgs.
By Sean Arenas

I love horror anthologies, particularly EC Comics, The House of Secrets, and anything by Bernie Wrightson. That’s why I was grinning like an idiot during most of Wicked Vibes, a self-published anthology comic.

$5 color cover, $3, b&w, 8½ x 11”, copied, 26 pgs.
By Kayla Greet

This zine is the project of a serious tape fiend. Leif Lundgren has a strong affinity for what most people view as an archaic medium, so much so that he’s dedicated a full zine to it.

$4.99, 8 ½” x 11”, offset, 30 pgs.
By Craven Rock

This is a slick, full-color, glossy zine full of leftist, agitprop art. I’m glad people are making political art and satire

6” x 8”, copied, 78 pgs.
By Craven Rock

Ripple Rock is a Finnish zine based around interviewing people from bands, microbreweries, and hockey players.

free/trade, 8½” x 5½”, 44 pgs.
By Craven Rock

Mishap! It’s one of his occasional “book issues” where he covers books he’s been reading. A bold defense of stories of all sorts talking about how they “define how we act as social creatures” and how all stories need to be analyzed and deconstructed.

MISHAP #33 Vol. 2
5 ½ x 8 ½”, copied, $1 or trade, 27 pgs.
By Craven Rock

This is the second volume of Ryan Mishap’s book review issue. There are some good reviews in this issue, but also many that assume the reader is familiar with the gist of the book.

$4.99, newsprint, 8¼” x 10¾”, 128 pgs.
By Art Ettinger

$6.85, 8 ¼” x 11 ¾, print, 48 pgs.
By mp

Maybe it was supposed to be called Inside-Out Artzine. That would be more appropriate, since a substantial portion of this art is blood and guts twisted into all sorts of brilliant shapes.

7” x 10”, offset, $5, 52 pgs.
By Craven Rock

Most of this zine is made up of reprints of “Won Ton Not Now,” a comic by Kiyoshi Nakazawa which has run in Razorcake for years. It’s nice to see them in here all at once.

5 ½ x 8 ½”, 52 pgs.
By Camylle Reynolds

Unabashed, straight (no pun intended) hilarious, balls-out sexcapades tales of Brontez Purnell. 

£5.00, 8½” x 12”, 36 pgs.
By jimmy

While nothing beats learning about a new band that makes your head turn or catching up with an older group that’s still slugging it out in the trenches, it’s also just as cool to get some insight on where we’ve been as a subculture, and how it’s developed and expressed itself elsewhere.

$3/2/6, 8 ½” x 11”, copied, 42 pgs.
By kurt

With the demise of Zine World in 2013 there will be a void in zines that cover zine culture. Perhaps it will be up to Zine Nation to take up that role.

$6, 8½” x 11”, 62 pgs.
By Bianca

This straight-up magazine available in many fine independent bookstores bills itself as a magazine about female drummers...   this is not just a magazine about lady drummers, it’s a magazine about some of the coolest and most exciting ones.

$?, 8 ½” x 11”, copied with glossy cover, 88 pgs.
By kurt

This is a thick zine, with lots of features and interviews throughout the almost ninety pages. The author states that the zine “is based around an unceasing desire to rediscover long-lost, favorite records.”

$3 ppd., 5½” x 8½”, copied, 30pgs.
By Simon Sotelo

I can only assume that the title is a coincidence, that most of the stories revolve around major ¢hanges like quitting your shitty job, getting rid of roommates or even the death of your dog, to the death of Diaperman.
