Rebel Girl

 

Really good zine! Really sweet and about childhood and fun and being a girl! Very fun!

 

Psycho Ex

 

Really really amazing zine about girls who have been rejected by their first loves. Some really fucked-up shit. But for anyone who's been there, it's powerful stuff.

 

Do as I say, not as I do

 

Such a funny, sweet and totally easy for me to identify with zine. Highly recommended. Kinda sad also...

 

I Cannot Wait For The Drugs By Mail

 

Really funny and interesting and sad. About working as a customer service rep and having to fuck people over.

 

Fish With Legs

 

OK, this is my zine, but it's really fucking good and really fucking funny. If I didn't do it I would totally fucking read it.

 

Querencia #6

 

A thoughtful, deep and well-put together zine. The Canadian author takes a road trip to America, and reflects on what America is and what makes it that way, and also conjures up all sorts of childhood memories along the way.

 

Infecticitis

 

This is one of my favorites lately. The contents aren't terribly new (stories about dumpster diving, odes to favorite bands, rants about society, etc.) but the author infuses it all with this awesome kid-energy that makes it impossible not to be infected by her enthusiasm.

 

Lower East Side Librarian

 

Written by Jenna Freedman, who curates the zine collection at Barnard and has blue hair (the last time I saw her). Personal zine about life in New York, plus a "reading log" with brief reviews of books the author is reading. Yeah, that's how librarians roll. The 2004 issue also includes an awesome essay about being a theater techie.

 

America? #14

 

Mainly composed of two tour diaries, written by a vegan librarian from Florida who still believes in punk. I found the writing a little pat and faux-philosophical at times, like lyrics cribbed from a Weakerthans B-side: "I've learned to measure strength in such silences, in the ability to be around others without having to fill the air when it's already suffocating." Still, this guy obviously has talent, and the fact that he did the cover of the zine on a letter press makes him OK in my book.
