So This is It #2 / .50 / Fourth-Sized / 24 Pages / Eve, 4110 Hollybrook Ln, Houston, TX 77039 /
This zine is purely a set of journal entries from the month around Christmas, and what happens to Eve during those time. We are slightly exposed to Eveâ€™s friends and family, but pretty much only learn about the actions of the star person eirself. As for layout, the zine is put together in Eveâ€™s hand, which is pretty messy and hard to read at times, and cut off by the printer lines at others. Detailing only the most specific happenings in Eveâ€™s life, So This Is It is pretty just concerned on a few events. Sure, Eve includes childish (eirâ€™s own terms) drawings that were made in class with eirâ€™s left hand. The crux of the zine comes with the emotional drama that happens around Christmas, especially with the celebration of Eveâ€™s family (and the fact that eyâ€™s ex-Aunt doesnâ€™t bring over eirâ€™s children until after Christmas), the Christmas mass, and the later buying of presents from Dollar General. Some of Eveâ€™s layout is a tad irking, especially the spiraling text that just begs to make someone dizzy. Still, if a reader has any desire to go and learn all about Eveâ€™s life, So This Is It is it!
