posted October 2nd, 2009 · posted by Pete Willis · marked as: Reviews · Zine reviews

Zine details: Free, or $50 intl sub

Zine details: $1.50

This series of zines, irregularly published by Microcosm, focuses each issue on a specific instance where the actions of America’s Central Intelligence Agency have been so insane, negligent or selfish that the resulting effect has been death, whether on a grand scale or of specific individuals.

One Way Ticket #5

posted September 18th, 2009 · posted by Pete Willis · marked as: Reviews · Zine reviews

One Way Ticket along with some of the bigger zines like Cometbus, Scam or Evasion introduced me to a world of community history littered with punk shows, petty crime and train hopping.

Non Fiction

posted September 12th, 2009 · posted by Pete Willis · marked as: Reviews · Zine reviews

Zine details: £3

This is a thing of beauty. A simple collection of conversations with four different sets of people, but created with such love and attention that the end result is something worth treasuring.

Naked Punch – Issue 12

posted August 9th, 2009 · posted by Pete Willis · marked as: Reviews · Zine reviews

I picked this up at the Serpentine Gallery mainly because the cover boasted both an interview with anti-war stalwart Howard Zinn and some essays on the recent anarchist riots in Athens and that at a quid it was easily the cheapest piece of literature in the shop.

posted July 16th, 2009 · posted by Edd · marked as: Zine reviews

By: Alex Wrekk

Almost six years I was sent a copy of the first edition of Stolen Sharpie Revolution. We had just started published Rancid News, up to issue 4, and my interaction with Stolen Sharpie Revolution did a lot to change the direction of the zine.
