Turbitt's #foodporn is a series of awesome and unsettling sexual fantasies different foods send a young woman off on. Sushi, beer, a good cup of coffee, tacos, pizza, wings all send our protagonist off into awesome sexual flights.

Cat Person

Cat Person collects Kim's daily comics. By the title, you can guess a cat will show up often - and she draws a pretty freakin' adorable cat.

How To Talk To Your Cat About Evolution

How To Talk To Your Cat About Evolution
by The American Association Of Patriots

Following up the sensation How To Talk To Your Cat About Gun Safety comes the equally timely How To Talk To Your Cat About Evolution. This zine gives you all the answers you need to keep our precious cats safe from vicious, science-based, atheist propaganda.


James O (editor)

It's a hand-crafted collection of risographed art inspired from the film Blade Runner. The art is pretty diverse and cool - like re-watching Blade Runner again, for the very first time.

Suspect Device #4
