A while ago, I want to Chicago Zine Fest, as discussed on Bombast Podcast episode 11.  Here is a rundown of the books I picked up!

Clutch / Invinvible Summer issue

Papercutter #17 Tugboat Press
Papercutter #8, #10 and #17

A great indie comics anthology.  A mix of slice-of-life, fantasy, whimsy, and memoir.  I particularly liked the story where all the charaters are fruit.

Rum Lad #5
by Steve Larder
Rum Lad is the tour diary of Steve Larder in the band he’s in.  Cool snapshots of their time as the travel the country, see the different sights, play shows in bars, or the basements of houses, sleep on people’s floors and spend long hours in the van.

If you only read one teenage punk rocker reincarnation story mixed with sci-fi court drama, this should be the one.  Also, check out Liz Suburbia’s long-form webcomic, “Sacred Heart” for free at her website!
