Feedback by John Isaacson (Zine Review by Anika)

Posted in Comics, Music, punk, Rock, Zines on July 5, 2017 by Mr. Winch

Feedback by John Isaacson is a zine that features reviews of live music shows. Each page features a clipping of the poster for the show and opposite to the poster is a comic of some interactions John had while at the shows, and some are quite funny.  This zine is a great compilation of comics and artwork. Each page tells a little story about the experience John had and just from that, you get the whole mood of the show. This zine has a whopping 13 different shows in it plus bonus album reviews in the back. This zine was made with care and lots of thought. It is clear that John’s love for the music scene is immense.

As You Were (zine review by Anika)

Posted in Comics, Music, Zines on May 19, 2017 by Mr. Winch

As You Were “Issue #1” (compiled by Mitch Clem) is a very interesting compilation of comics about house shows. All 19 artists in this zine use a different style so all the artwork is very different.  They all explore the house show scene in a different way,  like how house shows can be amazing or anything but amazing–awkward or weird. Every story is a different perspective on how it is at house shows and really covers it all. This zine is very cool and show so many different views and art styles.

Review by Mason Atkins (New Urban High School)

Bone by Jeff Smith is a funny and interesting comic book.

Bone is funny because the characters have a hilarious personalities. For example, Phoney Bone has stupid ideas and most of the time is angry. That doesn’t sound funny, but it is.  He got angry in “Book 2” because Smiley Bone made the worst cow suit. Smiley is funny too.  He’s pretty stupid and ruins all the plans, for example the plans to rebuild the farm house in “Bones 2.” Although Bones is entertaining, it also is interesting.

Bone is interesting for many reasons. They have villages that have never heard of money, and also there are dragons and also monsters called rat creatures. The dragon is the protector of the Bone cousins, and the rat creatures are ugly monsters that live in the woods and work for a king rat creature called Kingdok. The rat creatures are chasing down the Bone cousins and have not succeeded in capturing them because of the dragon. This is just one of the many reasons the plot of this book is riveting.
