This zine is one of the ones that has been out for an absurd amount of time, but hasnâ€™t really caught on to the masses of people. The people that have read this zine are in love with it, as it is a very fun read. The only problem that I could potentially see with it was the incredibly short narrative story in this issue. Honestly, this issue of the magazine is twelve pages long, including the covers and inner page. I can totally see where the cover price is $2, as the editor of the magazine has to lay out every single letter in a press and then stamp each individual page. Also, the heavy card stock that she uses is really beautiful, and probably pretty pricey. However, the zine does have a lot of followers, both for her narrative style and her incredible devotion to the layout aspects of each and every issue. For me however, I do notice the incredible work done on the magazine, but canâ€™t help but just want more textual content for the issue. This issue deals almost exclusively about the editorâ€™s childhood, describing the summers of her early life after school years when they were taught about riptides and rattlesnakes. Being from a relatively land-locked state (I don’t count Lake Erie for much), I can only wonder what living near an ocean must have been like.
