8-Track Mind #102
by Russ Forster
The new issue of Forster's long-running music zine - which started as an 8-track fanzine. This issue is loaded with great articles about the revival of analog. AND the zine is shaped like an 8-track!
As You Were #2
by Mitch Clem
The new issue of Clem's hit punk anthology comic. Features work by Ben Snakepit, Liz Prince, Ramsey Beyer, Will Laren, and more.
Safely through customs, and on the mean streets of America - volume 4 of Cinema Sewer collects issues 21-23 of Bougie's hit sleaze-cinema zine. Not for the squeamish, but totally addictive.
How To Talk To Your Cat About Gun Safety
by The American Association Of Patriots
Look, we just want you to be safe, okay? The time is right. This zine answers common questions like, "So my cat finds a gun, what's the big deal?"
by Frederik Peeters
SelfMadeHero has been consistently putting out amazing graphic novels for a while now, but this one might just be the best to date. Stunning artwork, and an eerie story with a wounded elephant, a blind pig-keeper, an unnerving hospital and an awakened corpse. You can't thumb through it and not want to immediately plop down in a chair and read it cover to cover.
