The fourth issue of this locally themed zine from Geneva, New York, talks mostly about the local agriculture business, which is a lot more interesting than it sounds. Long interviews with a cattle auctioneer and an organic farmer shed light on two professions that I previously knew next to nothing about. Perhaps more importantly, both interviews paid tribute to working class dudes with solid personalities and values. The article encouraging readers to participate in local elections and a contributor’s list of favorite comics and graphic novels from the local public library struck me as great ideas to fulfill Geneva 13’s goal of reaching out and providing some useful information to their community. Throughout the zine, the editors also reprinted some entries from a poetry contest for first through eighth graders that they judged. My pick is “Poor Nicky” by first grader Astrid Olivia Lilly: “There once was a mouse named Nicky/Whose food choices were so picky/She saw a trap/and the trap went SNAP!!!/And poor Nicky was so icky.” –Lauren Trout (G13, PO Box 13, Geneva, NY14456)
