New Zines to the distro at www.dorisdorisdoris.com/zinecat
Skinned Heart This is a beautiful and intense personal and political zine about racism, feminism, child abuse, rape, mental illness, cultural appropriation and a bunch of other life things. This is the kind of zine that first got me into zines and that I don't see enough of these days - that takes personal experiences, sees them through a political lens, and makes you feel, not just think.

Cometbus was the first zine I ever read. It is stories, social commentary, interviews, mini-novels, punk. This issue is half Aaron Cometbus's writing and half Maddalena Polletta. Aaron has an interview with the founder of PUNK magazine, back in the very beginning of punk. and a couple stories, one of which mentions the time I stole a car to come visit him.
Maddalena's stories are about her mom dieing and the aftermath. Very beautifully written. Bleak and stunning.
