Just Another Stupid Zine

Just Another Stupid Zine.
Zine: Just Another Stupid Zine
Issue: Unknown
Created by: Unknown
Format: 8 1/2" x 11" full-page
Where: Fort Worth, TX
When: 1991

I remember absolutely nothing about this zine. I have no idea who created it, but it's from 1991, so I can imagine it was created by someone I'd corresponded with or traded zines with in the few prior years. There's a full-on Alberto Kroeger page with some of his usual artistic brilliance. The Robert Brown: A Man Of Few Words page is gold. 

Notes: This zine was copied with full 8 1/2" x 11" pages, stapled at the far left side. No half-fold letter paper here.

When: 1989

An underused concept in making zines, this issue of Disobedience is like a split 7" by your two favorite bands. Kroeger does issue seven as the first half of the zine, Wendzel does the flip side as issue eight. I only have issue five and this one... I wish I had more.

Notes: I did rotate the second half of the zine in Photoshop so you wouldn't have to turn your computer upside-down. Kroeger's current work and zine Girl Greaser are available at Backward Messages.

Zine: Disobedience

When: 1989

Disobedience was one of those prototypical zines that everyone wanted to make, that everyone wanted to look like, that everyone wanted to feel like. It's some serious badass cut-and-paste. Great layouts, incredible use of type and a cool handwriting style – not to mention Kroeger's artistic stylings – made Disobedience one of the legendary zines of the late 80s. This issue has a cool opening contents page and it just gets better. 

Notes: This was my first introduction to Alberto Kroeger. Who knew that 25 years later, we'd meet up for Mexican food in Austin, Texas and swap boxes of old zines?

Format: 8 1/2" x 11"
Where: West Chester, PA
When: 1989

Somehow I missed out on issue three, but this is the next and last issue of Mike Ging's Vital Force that I've got. Traditional black and white copy of the cover this time instead of colored card stock. Number four is a photo-heavy issue with a ton of great shots. 

Notes: This was damaged in the mail, returned to sender, and then returned to me with a new mailer and this note...
