I must say, I love Jess. I love all that ey does. Iâ€™ve tried to help sometimes to help print Dog in Space, but this issue is early enough that Iâ€™m pretty sure that it came out before I met eir. This whole issue is like one long stream-of-consciousness dump that was laid on 32 pages â€“ and I mean that in a good way. Jess does most of the rendering of the text eirself â€“ eirâ€™s writing is cute enough to be its own font. Some of these pieces are completely random too, such as â€œWhat Can We Find Today?â€ which is a list of random books that Jess found in the public library, as well as â€œMore Dress Jess Fashionsâ€, a continuing feature where one can literally dress up Jess (although, Jess in a paper doll sense). And, as you can guess, I absolutely adored the little Latin assignment that Jess is using as a pseudo-contest, as well as the random song quotes (which range from bands like Marilyn Manson to The Juliana Theory). Aside from the largest breasts Iâ€™ve ever seen in any format, this issue of Dog in Space ends really well, with the cunt-blocking of Jess by eirâ€™s mom (at a bookstore, no less), and a description of why all Jessâ€™ girl-friends seem to dump eir. Overall, a strong zine with some minor weaknesses (literary criticism? Why?) but still immensely enjoyable.
