Mini Review By Sarah Thompson

This is an exceedingly strange zine. I don't quite know what to make of it. Many of the stories are humorous, but it's a very grim kind of humor.

My favorite things in the zine are the poem "Hell" and especially the illo that goes with it-- the wall scene from "Rumours," but with the positions reversed. Servalan is running her hand through the hair of the chained Avon. Yum. (Of course, it's not altogether accurate as an illustration-- he looks to be still in pretty good shape in the picture, whereas in the poem he talks about how they've been beating him in an attempt to get him to reveal the location of Orac. But I suppose one can't have everything. :)
