High on Burning Photographs #10 / $3 / 2 oz high 10
Ocean’s zines own my damn heart. And this one is extra special because it’s so much longer than previous issues! She crams in so much — tales from the cities & punk houses she lived in throughout the years, of making it through dangerous & threatening situations, the process of how she self-published her book, & on & on. Much of the writing is centered on being queer and feeling like (& being read as) sometimes a boy / sometimes a girl, & how this affects the way both strangers & lovers interact with her. I recently said of Ocean’s zines “They slay every time” & it’s true. Get this.

In Our Hands #1 / $2 / 2 oz in our hands
The subtitle of this one is “Using a Community Accountability Approach to Address Sexual Violence, Abuse, & Oppression.” Compiled by a community accountability group in Pittsburgh of the same name, this zine documents the basic practices the group has taken in its formation: the language they use when discussing accountability & sexual violence, a thorough process map that guides readers through a community accountability process, and other helpful information on how to help survivors heal. This is a fantastic resource for folks looking to start an accountability process in their community, or even for those who are looking to simply support a friend who is in need of love during a time of healing.

It’s Alright: A Truckface Anthology (Volume One) / $15 / 13+ oz it's alright volume one
The first of two Truckface anthologies, this thick book (360 pages!) contains issues 7 – 11 of LB’s long-running & exceptional zine. From the back cover: “From scooping chicken salads to selling dirty clothes to shelving books to teacher training, It’s Alright: A Truckface Anthology details years of embarrassment and missteps. This volume contains stories of rowdy backyard brawls, awful customer service, awkward social interactions, underpants dance parties, staying angry and learning how to try.” Truckface is the best zine out there, and we’re fortunate to have another chance to dig through its earlier, out-of-print issues. Read this & feel alive. Highly recommended.

It’s Alright: A Truckface Anthology (Volume Two) / $17 / 13+ ozit's alright volume two
The second volume of the Truckface anthologies is even more massive than the first — 448 pages! From the back cover: “Through strikes, standardized testing, violence, bouffant wigs, school closings and drawings of wieners, It’s Alright: A Truckface Anthology documents the life of one Chicago public high school teacher. Simultaneously hopeful and hopeless, volume two contains issues 12-16 of the long running zine.” LB’s stories are sometimes agonizing, sometimes hopeful, but always moving. I want to force this book into the hands of everyone I know (truly — even my mom bought one). Highly recommended.
