Shelf Life issue 1 - "The East Village Triangle"
Debut issue! A chronicle of me and my girlfriend's adventures in used book hunting. Issue 1 covers NYC's East Village. Part store review, part book review, part perzine, part travel guide. Includes original photographs and illustrations.
Over the past few years, the two of us (Annie and Tim) have become obsessed with digging through shelves, stacks, boxes, carts, and racks in search of great used book finds. We even plan our vacations around visiting every bookstore we can manage within a given area. So we decided to write Shelf Life as a way of sharing the stories of our adventures in used book hunting. We write about the stores themselves, as well as about the books we found there, and our experiences passing through the various cities we've been to. This first issue focuses on our home turf and on some of our most beloved and frequented shops. Future issues will center around different cities or regions we've visited.
Stores visited in this issue:
- Strand Book Store
- Alabaster Bookshop
- East Village Books
Plus, "Have You Read _____?" - a dispatch from the Strand carts.
Black and white
Cardstock cover (in "Strand bag yellow!")

I just finished printing the first copy of the first new zine I've done in over 5 years!Resist Zine #47 is the first one I've done since writing How and Why: A Do-it-yourself Guide. It spans some pretty serious life changes, but it still covers the topics that have been standard in Resist for years. It's still coming from the self-sustainable, DIY mindset that it's always come from. I write about gardening, bike riding and repair, and building musical instruments. I also spend some time on DIY home improvement projects, though in more of a storytelling format than a step by step guide. I cover our first experience butchering a turkey in the same way. 52 nearly half sized pages. It'll run you $4 plus $1 for shipping.
I lost my old website because I didn't get the bill paid in time, so now you get zines from http://bicyclelaneindustries.weebly.com/zines.html.
You can also mail cash to:

In the latest edition of this long-running fanzine of freedom, you can read about the E.T. video game and other gaming flops. Read about the most idiotic idea for a comic book-inspired YouTube video ever.

My latest comic is out now!
Daniel Edgar Sickles was a rising political star in the United States in the years leading up to the Civil War. He had achieved both personal and professional success. He had many close and powerful friends in Washington D.C. including President James Buchanan.
Yet, Sickles’ world was about to be turned upside down by a series of events…
This is based on historical events and I spent several months researching this topic and the sequence of events that are portrayed in the comic.
The comic is 20 pages, all black and white and measures about 8.5" by 7" and it will sell for $5 plus shipping and available now.
