Sweet writing about crushes, mental health, frienship.

ANAlog #2: dispatches on d.i.y. anorexia recovery
this is an amazingly great zine, and this issue is so good. In it, ponyboy violet recounts how, at age 22, when they hadn't eaten without medical monitoring for 10 years, they developed their own healing strategy: "I needed to be: away from the loving people who pressured me into eating, away from foods that I could recognize and therfore memorize the calories of, away from scales, and closer to a revolutionary situation that would jolt me into figuring out how to surivive."

Areolas and Eyelashes
This is a beautiful zine, about trauma, addiction, femme, PTSD, sobriety, being misgendered and misraced, written by a "rad, mixed-race gender queer anarchist that believes in creating communities of love and still dreams of smashing the state..."

price: 2.90

Baba Yaga Burns Paris to the Ground
Super interesting essay/zine about the 1871 Paris Commune (where people were fighting to create a secular, classless society) and the State's use of propaganda about fire weilding women to turn them into monsters. Tieing it in to fairy tales of Charles Perrault and the Brothers Grimm, witch hunts, and Baba Yaga - "they used trickery, cunning and secrecy -- negative qualities ascribed to women by European society -- as tools of revolt."

price: 3.36

Blackout #3 :interiors
"Blackout is a zine about memory. Named for what I've lost to trauma." In this issue of Blackout, Tara writes about an abusive relationship in order to organize their experience, manage the overwhelming muddled feelings, and also because there are so few good resources about emotional abuse, particularly ones that go beyond describing emotionally abuse behavior patterns to explore what it actually looks like, feels like. This is a powerful and excellent zine!

price: 5.30


Bloomer number one
Personal and political zine about social justice and love and the creative process and pain and dreams of connection and commuinion and wholeness. Nicely layed out with good graphics, Ben writes about his heart being in different places across the country, about his Aunt-hero, style and humility, hope, change and more.

price: 4.39


Cheer the Eff Up #5
"The longer I work an office job, the older I get, the stronger I feel about anarchism." More wonderful stories including all the best charactors/friends, the old highschool FTL crew (the way we form cohesion), wanting to be part of a community again but feeling alienated. Stories about his dad and grandpa, and finding out he's going to have a son after wishing he's have a daughter. The ways identity can describe but not define.the way bell hooks talks about saying "I advocate feminism" rather than "I am a feminist, focusing on belief rather than which box you fall into.

3.39

by the author of Cheer the Eff Up: The Greatest Most Traveling Circus! book!!!
I love this book! Written by Jonas of Cheer the EFF Up zine, this is a bunch of fictional little stories including my favorite superhero Amazing Man. I'm not totally sure how to describe it all, but it's so great. Curses and forlorn love, kindergardeners and punks. All these sad, strange slices of people's lives so strange they are clearly fiction, but so simple they could be true.

cometbus #54: in China with Green Day
Aaron goes on tour with Green Day to China! Epic. More than a travel zine. The part I liked best was talking about how selling out is judged, but people just giving up their creative lives and doing nothing really worthwhile is not judged.

Cometbus #55 Pen Pals
This is my favorite issue in a long time. It gets at the sorrow and placenesses of living in a world where the punks and leftists of the past have not really passed on their insights or provided a groudwork for us to stand on. Punk friendship-love and how it draws out the sides of us we can't express or see.

3.39

Cometbus #56: A Bestiary of Booksellers
A giant new issue of Cometbus, with each chapter obstensibly about another NY bookseller, but about way more than that, of course. Somehow it brings all Aaron's obsessions together: community, urban anthropology, books, girls, tradition, creating our own lives outside social views of "success," code names, being remembered, being forgotten, the artist and the underground, and a ton of weird, funny slights and jokes that I always wonder if other people understand. I love this issue.

price: 5.45


Cometbus 57
Aaron is a really amazing interviewer, and even though I don't know a lot of these comic artists, this issue tells a whole nother story - about art and community and what we say and what we don't say. why we do what we do. woven togehter in Aaron's tapestry way. ...for those of you who know comic artists names, this issue includes interviews with "Gary Panter, Julia Wertz, Ben Katchor, Adrian Tomine, and Gabrielle Bell, but also comics scholars, publishers, shopkeepers, and librarians. Featuring beautiful illustrations by Nate Powell, a wraparound cover by Jeffrey Lewis, and a breathtaking Al Jaffee interview that ties it all together in the end."
5.45

The Dangerous Powers of Witches: Spirituality, Autonomy, Community and Literacy
"...an essay about the Essex Witch Trials. Informative and educational, it goes beyond the historical facts to explore the political implications of the witch trials. Rather than simply considering the event as a persecution of ‘witches’, this zine looks at the construction of the category ‘witch’ and how it was used to justify the torture, murder and oppression of poor, disabled, old and otherwise marginalized women. It explains how even the smallest forms of organization and resistance were considered to be and treated as major threats..."

Don't Be A Dick: revised editions
A zine about rape culture, male socialization, a critique of traditional porn, the importance of consent, including being honest enough to look at one's history, and a great article called "what kind of man are you going to be?". This revised edition features "More sex positivity, more cock love, better analysis, more genderqueer!"
It is so important that guys start doing this work, and this is a really good introduction zine about these issues.

Entropy
The most powerful and hopeful zine I've ever read about incest survival, body memory, trauma and healing. Peregrine spent years writing it. It is not a raw testimonial, but an unfolding of his story, starting with his discovery that he was a childhood incest surviver, with intense body memories but not many specific fact memories - and the difficulties of belief and denial, within himself and his family.
So many men I know are sexual abuse survivors, and I have seen very few zines written by men about it. I know this zine will help so many people. It is great regardless of your gender!
I recommend this zine for everyone - regardless of whether or not you are an abuse survivor. It is an essential peice of writing for us all.

6.00

Ethics of Care
""the ethics of care" is a perzine that was written in less than 48 hours, while my father was in the hospital in 2013. it is very personal & touches upon death, grieving, sex, gendered myths of care, white privilege, the scarcity of resources and myths regarding this scarcity, and abuse. it is imperfect and raw, but that's how i was feeling at the time." (from Hoax website)

price: 4.42


Everyday Magic #1
I love this zine. I love the struggle to bring magic into our political lives - figuring out ways to bring healing in to our lives and communities without neglecting the political or coopting cultures that are not ours. This is a great zine that does just that, talking about learning to pay attention to plants/ocean/self. "I want to practice a spritiuality where personaltransformation is tied to collective healing." They talk about belief systems and name changes and rituals, paganism and kitchen witch and ritual. some specific rituals they did. powerful small stories. This zine opens up so many possibilities.

4.49

Everything is Fine
This zine is about haivng an eating disorder and writing the zine as part of working to change. Talks about body hate and social expectation of thinness; sexual maipulation and the way we are taught "no means no" but also that we aren't supposed to say no and should just go along with what the other person wants. Nver feeling a sens of belonging in general or belonging in her body. Finding paganism and a new story.

From the great above she set her mind on the great below
"...about fear, change, things that cannot be put into words, courage and love. It’s about turning twenty-seven, sobriety and recovery, and feeling long buried feelings. It’s about grief, dissociation and trauma. It’s about vulnerability, hope and trusting the process..."
