Zine Review: Want Crack

Category: Cam Gordon, Issue 76, News, Reviews

Want Crack Zine, Jean-Thomas Bouchard, 24 pgs, stolenground.com, $5 What does everybody want? Crack, apparently. So says this photog zine from Jean-Thomas Bouchard, a Montreal-based snapper with an interest in referencing drugs. Back story: “El Barto” is Bart Simpson’s graffiti-tagging alter-ego, and is “one of the most infa-mous outlaws in Springfield” (according to some online Simpsons […]

Zine Review: Not Recommended for You

Not Recommended for You Zine, Roxanne Hudon, 36 pgs, hudon_roxane@hotmail.com, ballzmontreal.com, $5 “Carpe Yolo” wraps the zine Not Recommended For You (NRFY) in a sorta snippy fashion, and it makes for a good exclamation for an effort that has much utility.

So begins Walking Styxx, a delightful look at a Winnipeg-based pooch, rescued from a life of heck and plucked into pages of this sweet little book. His human dad […]

Comic Review: Pure-O

Pure-O Comic, Nick McIvor, 16 pages, NicholasMcIvor.com Like Daniel Clowes taking a stab at a self-help manual, Pure-O is a delightfully smart and upbeat comic that deals with the realness of mental health and anxiety in a fun, informative matter. Illustrator Nick McIvor should be proud of himself for this public service, sketching everything firsthand […]
