Think Again Vol. II: Issue 1

Without actually being able to see any of the issues in the previous volume of Think Again, one can only judge how the magazine is from the six-page newsletter that is this issue. This means painfully few articles dictate whether or not one will wish to return for this zine. The crew that creates Think Again is thankfully skilled enough in their writing to provide readers with a short and concise read that mixes together humor with some serious (a focus on the philosophy concerning the moon landing and nihilism) pieces. While the cost-effectiveness of running the entire magazine in color is a little confusing (nothing necessarily needs color, especially when the spot-color used is only of static stills of people like Tom Jones), the pieces (especially with Pastor Jack (a member of the Church of Tom Jones)) show a color that even the pictures are unable to bring forth. The only problem that I can see concerning this issue comes in the tremendous amount of space that Think Again uses for printing out the correct answers to a quiz that was on the immediately precedent page perhaps more information could be crammed in if the editors just had number, answer responses instead of using so much white space on the page. Most philosophy zines are boring to tears but Think Again do the impossible and make learning about famous dead white guys at least a little bit fun. Try to pick up a more current issue, perhaps they have expanded their content and by extension, made this an even harder impacting zine.
