T.V. Casualty

T.V Casualty is a zine that I receive for the explicit purpose to review. The issue is about breaking away from the dominance of the T.V. in the molding of individuals’ lives. This zine may be short, but the hand-written text on each page will ensure that individuals have a few solid minutes of engagement. One minor issue that comes forth with the early part of the magazine is Karl’s “fancy” writing, which is incredibly hard to decipher at points. When ey takes a minute or two to write the text, it is easy to read. However, this is not the case when ey does the “punk” writing style. However, there are some good points to this zine that will keep individuals interested. Specifically, these include the rant about hero worship, as well as the types of things that one can do instead of watching TV (which include skateboarding, drinking, being arrested, and reading). The blend of drawings and text keeps the zine light enough to finish in one reading, while increasing the re-readability of the issue. This issue is a little short, but one has no reason to believe that subsequent issues won’t be longer. I know that I will be on the lookout for future issues of “T.V. Casualty”. Hit up editor Karl with an email and I’m sure that ey will be able to file off a copy of this zine for a buck or so. T.V. Casualty shows that there are still things to be said, and that an individual that has read zines for about a decade can still be caught for a loop.
