Incredulous #5 / :10 / $1 ($2.00 overseas) / Odd-Sized / 32 Pages / Matt Rasch, 00730 Clute Rd, Boyne City, MI 49712 / firstname.lastname@example.org”/
Incredulous is a mixture between random topics and cartoons, with the level of the material in this issue being a small bit on the Spartan side. The interview that is touted as the focal point of the issue, Phillips, has short responses to only a few questions, not really allowing the readers of Incredulous any insight into Phillipsâ€™ life, besides the fact that ey was the voice of Jem (from Jem and the Holograms). This inability to open up fully in any one specific piece is a problem with the entire zine, as Matt and the other writers put out a very interesting product, but only for enough of a period to get individuals addicted. â€œSomething Highâ€ by Elizabeth Winter, is more like a comic strip than a comic book in the fact that ey gives us 12 panels that ultimately just yield up the punchline â€œschool sucksâ€. Torzewoâ€™s exploits are slightly more off-the-wall, and not really tied into anything besides a joke per 4-panel strip. â€œIn the Newsâ€ is a culling of all the off-beat news stories that the staff could find, using a myriad of stories that were already over-reported on AP wires and fark.com, such as â€œBeating Them At Their Own Gameâ€, which details an individual calling a telemarketing firm an obscene amount of time. Overall, a quick read, and I would like to see a stronger smattering of content in future issues.
