Dream Whip, Issues 1–10

$12.00 • pb • Microcosm


Spanning 1994 to 1999, this
352-page pocketsize anthology
collects issues 1 through 10
of the long-running
Whip zine. Inside, Bill Brown hits the road and
fnds adventure far and wide. Each page is
lovingly handwritten or typed and illustrations
and photographs abound. It’s tornadoes and pet
cemeteries, Alaskan highways and the lonely
ruins of government missile sites. Bill Brown’s
America is seen with the big, dreaming heart of
a romantic, everything recorded in sweet, smart,
funny, beautifully-simple prose.


Everything Dies #7

$5.00 • zine/journal • Microcosm


One of the best and most
promising new comic artists out
there today, Box Brown writes
and draws the
Everything Dies
zine series as a hard (and oft
times hilarious) look into the
religious myths of our world. Issue seven (the
frst we’ve had at AK) is a comic retelling of the
pan-cultural “food myth.” Here we see Sumerian
wind god Enlil (a total badass jerk a la an evil pro-
wrestler) setting out to destroy the newly-created
people of the Earth. The “Noah” of this polytheistic
ark story is King Ziasudra, and his trajectory and
fate are much different than the Christian Biblical
version. Beautifully drawn and deep-packed with
“the things that make you go hmm,” Everything
Dies will keep you reassessing who we are and
what we’ve built our shared narrative from.


Burn Collector #15

$3.00 • zine/journal • Microcosm


The expatriated Al Burian
refects on a year spent living in
Berlin, Germany. His wildly free-
range topics include: freedom,
happiness, animal liberty,
Aristotle, modern dentistry, riots
as rituals, uncomfortable proximity to drunken

teenagers, and how to best color co-ordinate an
outft that includes a Black Flag T-shirt and a baby
stroller. Plus: “when you realize the freedom,” an
illustrated essay by Anne Elizabeth Moore. “Burian
is one of our generation’s great storytellers, a wily
and insightful observer of the human condition,”
says Davy Rothbart of
Found magazine, and this
zine is “the best one yet,” says Al. Who are we to

CAGLE, Susie

Nine Gallons #2

$5.00 • pam • Microcosm


It’s issue two of Susie Cagle’s
celebrated Food Not Bombs
comic zine,
Nine Gallons! This
time around Susie addresses issues of volunteer
burn-out, misguided agendas, and activist in-
fghting. Hers is the story of San Francisco
Food Not Bombs (specifcally, for this issue, the
underdoggy Civic Center lunch.) Over the course
of thirty-two packed pages we get Susie dealing
with her roommate just not gettin’ it, fellow
activists offering critiques but not solutions, and
working hard with little help. But it’s also fun—and
funny—and Susie gives both a conversational
insider look and a brief biographical sketch of the
(non)organization. Susie Cagle lives in Oakland!


Add Toner: A Cometbus

$12.00 • pb • Last Gasp

Cometbus magazine, including
“Lanky” (a novella), “Back to
the Land” (an oral history of the
children of hippie homesteaders) plus sixty other
interviews and short stories. The text is lovingly
handwritten, interspersed with bold graphics and
illustrations. Includes never-before-published
Cometbus has been variously hailed as
“a classic in the subterranean world” (
Time), “the
best loved zine ever” (by the
San Francisco Bay
Guardian), and “disappointing” and “a waste of
paper.” Those who love it, love it a lot! Pick one up!

CRABB, Cindy

The Encyclopedia of Doris

$18.00 • pb • Doris Press


Cindy Crabb has been


autobiographical, feminist zine,
Doris, since the early ’90s. This
new collection offers stories,
essays, and interviews from
2001–2011, and it collects issues
#19–28 as well as some never before published
writings. It looks great. If you’ve read Doris before
then you know what’s in store. If you haven’t, then
I’ll say that Cindy has a great writing “voice” that
makes you want to keep turning the page.

Some of this issue is learning lessons from your
children—or even them teaching you lessons—

Rad Dad is a forum and a source
of hope that parents and children can one day

MOORE, Anne Elizabeth

Cambodian Grrrl: Self-
Publishing in Phnom Penh

$7.95 • zine/journal • Microcosm


In Cambodian Grrrl: Self-
Publishing in Phnom Penh,
writer and independent
publisher Anne Elizabeth Moore
brings her experience in the American cultural
underground to Cambodia, a country known
mostly for the savage extermination of around 2
million of its own under the four-year reign of the
Khmer Rouge. Following the publication of her
critically acclaimed book
Unmarketable, Moore
disembarked to Southeast Asia hoping to teach
young women how to make zines. What she
learned instead were brutal truths about women’s
rights, the politics of corruption, the failures of
democracy, the mechanism of globalization, and
a profound emotional connection that can only be
called love.
