past titles

This is the page where sold out and past titles will be listed. None of these are available, I just thought this might be a good way to archive the life of the distro and zines that are no longer available. This is not totally current yet, it is under construction. As with the rest of the site, some descriptions say more info needed or were used from other places (where noted) because many of my records had been lost in the fall of geocities.

Big Hands #1 by Aaron

sold out, cannot be reordered
$1 – 22 pages – quarter sized – 1 oz

In the first issue of Big Hands, Aaron talks about travelling, postmodernity, overcoming fear, losing and gaining hope, and coming to the realization that sometimes what we think we want isn’t really what we need. I personally think that this was a totally absorbing read, one of the better zines that I’ve read in awhile.

Burn Collector #13 by Al Burian

sold out, cannot be reordered
$4 – 96 pages – 5×5″ square sized – 4.5 oz

It’s hard to describe Burn Collector. The best way is just to say you need to read it. He is a wordsmith like no other zinester, has a clean semi-pro layout, and knows how to explain his desperation in any setting. Burian is a resident Chicagian and writes about the windy city plus a trip around Europe including Germany and Italy. This is a must-read. If you haven’t read the book yet you really should, too!

$3 – 68 pages – 1/2 sized – ?oz

Original cookzine edition.

Ideas in Pictures #4 by Colin Matthes

sold out, cannot be reordered
$3 – 40 pages – half sized – 3 oz

Includes a hand screenprinted cover on a reused file folder and is from a numbered edition of 500.

From Punk Planet: The thing about a zine as beautiful as ideas in pictures is that it can never be fully captured in a shoddy 150-word review. You need to hold it in your hands and let your fingers run over the texture of the screenprinted cover. You need to put the your nose up to the page, to smell the sharp toner splashed across the white pages. You need to sit on a park bench, on a weekday afternoon, and let Colin seep into your brain with his distorted line drawings of working class heroes. His chronicle of a strike against Tyson Foods is insightful, “This next series of images is about meat packers who went on strike in the town I grew up in. My interest in the humane treatment of farm animals has led to an interest in the treatment of workers in ‘meat processing’ industries.” It’s another nod to the personal as political as art, and it’s fuckin’ awesome.

I Hate This Part of Texas #5 by John Gerkin

sold out, cannot be reordered

$5 – 40 pages – 1/2 legal – 3 oz

From Microcosm:  This issue contains things that will make you laugh, smile, and cry – visiting friends in the hospital, the early morning, the story of the zine’s title, picking up your friends shifts at work, Shelley’s annual trips to India, and organizing drag shows. But the real gem of this issue is the story of teaching 9-15 year olds how to fix bikes. It transcends the obvious and covers all kinds of education – homophobia, identity, feminism, and to question what we mean when we say “community”.

I Hear You Like Stories! #1 by Meg Favreau

sold out, cannot be reordered

$1 – 24 pages – 1/4 sized – 1 oz

This is a unique fiction zine with style. Meg’s layout and design may be even more interesting than the stories told. The illustrations are altered vintage clip art that are pretty funny. The stories are unique and include My Name is Not Vagina McTampon on a sexist standup club, The Robber Had a Prosthetic Leg, and more. Include teal vellum covers.

I Hear You Like Stories! #2 by Meg Favreau

sold out, cannot be reordered

$1.50 – 36 pages – 1/4 sized – 1 oz

I look at [this issue] and I see growth. Style is up, way up, in Issue Two, with Vaudeville/silent-film-style titles and elaborate borders throughout.  The clip-art conglomerations sprinkled within are extremely clean, and make hilarious non sequiturs to complement the (mostly) serious, sometimes heavy text.  Meg said in Issue One, “…I have been trying to reconcile my love of comedy and my love of equality.”  That sentiment (or a close relative) comes through in Issue Two, with both strong personal stories and bold humor that will appeal to almost any reader.  I enjoyed I Hear You Like Stories! Issue Two from cover  to cover, and recommend it highly.

Kubba funf (5): The Forgotten Issue by Jessica Bublitz

sold out, cannot be reordered

$2 – 36 pages – 1/2 sized – 1.5 oz

Four years in the making, and it is obvious in the way topics and the writing changes throughout the zine. Stories focus on finding an apartment (comic), bad roommates, travel, short stories, and photographs including a motel series. Reading each will pull you in different directions of your own memories from that awkward time transitioning from the end of high school to the first few years of college. Various single-color covers with the popular kubba motel altered photo icon. Anyone that donates an extra 50 cents ($2.50 total) will receive a kubba motel button! What a lush prize.

The Secret Files of Captain Sissy #5 by Andy Cornell

sold out, cannot be reordered

$5 – 72 pages – 1/2 sized – 5 oz

Andy Cornell’s new issue is a little bit of a departure from his style but still building upon and critiquing the punk community in a very necessary way. This issue tackles relevant issues through his own stories including skateboarding injuries from not wearing a helmet, student racial and anti-sweatshop activism, working for the Steelworkers Union, a couple weeks on the road with Mobilivre Bookmobile, thoughts on freedom fries and the PATRIOT act, book reviews of radical autobiographies, and my favorite article of all, a crazed account of the west Philadelphia co-op strike of 2002 where disagreements over one staff person’s position and reluctance to work with the group lead to shutting down the co-op, macho intimidation, and putting a pallet of food on the trolley tracks! The tales of working in the steel union were equally fascinating as it challenges punk activism up a notch and tells stories of a queer man working in an industry where many of us do not get an inside look. A fascinating document of his last few years.

A collection of stories chronicling the lives of a bunch of guys in Portland.  Al hates to work but for money’s sake is forced to work at mediocre jobs through a temp agency.  Bill dresses as a giant M&M and other junk food while listening to the rock group Hammerhead.  Andrew helps found the band Manpower – also the name of the temp agency all three men work at – which they are all members of.  Characters drift in and out, some making impacts while others don’t leave a scratch.  Thoroughly engrossing.

La Boca by erica

sold out
$1.50 – 42 pages – 1/4 sized – 2.5 oz

Beautifully laid out, La Boca is introspective and engrossing.  Every story is written in exacting detail, rendering the author’s thoughts in a clear, distinct voice.  Trips to Chicago, missing old friends, losing a pot of spaghetti, and trying to discover and keep people who understand her around are all reported here.  As Billy over at Loop Distro reported, “There’s a certain loveable restlessness about this zine that reminds me that we’re all in search of something.”  Each cover is screen-printed in brown on pink.
