We Make Zines

a place for zinesters - writers and readers

Very suddenly LB's Truckface has become one of my favorite zines. And now we carry them! Hoorah!

Truckface #10- This is what got me hooked on the goodness that is Truckface. There was a copy of it in the car on tour last spring and it got passed around until we'd all read it and were making jokes about "the most famous leaf of all," cracking up about "perverted men who want everyone to know they love tits so much they can only stay hydrated though the glass nipple." Included within: working at a novelty gift shop, dealing with sexual harassment, Detroit, underwear, post-Katrina New Orleans, plus LB's awesome Ralph Steadman-esque drawings. Her ability to mix humorous pieces with more serious ones is really awesome and probably is a reason why I like her zines so much.

Truckface #12- This is probably my favorite of all the Truckface issues. From a year of subbing in Chicago public schools comes a slew of stories that are at once funny, sad, beautiful, and kind of disturbing. Totally one of
the best writers working in zines today.

Truckface #13- This issue's all about her first year as a full-time teacher in the Chicago public school system. Portraits of "education's true heroes" are interspersed within stories of periods, parent teacher conferences, queer issues, language barriers, the merciless ridicule of students, and much much more. As she says at the beginning, "this ain't no freaking Dangerous Minds."
