While on the subject of Cristy C. Road, I thought I would also add this review that I wrote of Indestructible. This review originally appeared in Zine World #24.
Indestructible: This short illustrated novel by long-time zinester Cristy C. Road tells the coming-of-age story of a young, queer, punk woman of color having adventures and struggling through adolescents in the 1990s. I found the writing unremarkable, but the illustrations are phenomenal. The book is worth the asking price for the artwork alone, but the whole thing is very slick and obviously not produced at the local copy shop. Microcosm Publishing, 5307 N.
