Far Cry #9 is out!

The great great Anika Balaconis has done it again with Far Cry #9, the biggest little speculative fiction zine in the scene, published while she’s not punking down and running her own restaurant in Greenfield, Massachusetts.

Authors Andrew Massey, Jean Paul Garnier (namesake of the condoms and glowsticks on the cover) and Joe Urson are featured besides Anika’s own story, and she put one of my stories in too!!! Audio version of the latter here for those of you too busy, too nonprofit or too ‘post-literate’ to read. Cover artist London Roman also has an illustration in the back, like a single page from a longer comic, to round it out.

The cover image also gets my approval for featuring the west coast, and a punker wailing on a guitar. Get on Far Cry, or find Éxitos Gnosis, and get yourself a copy today while they last!

2-Strats and the Boabab

At band practice, 2-Strats debuts his latest opus. Luke-Ass and Cornhouse aren’t going for it, and in his rage 2-Strats threatens to use force.

Super Old 2-Strats #5

Another bong-hitter dated 5.05. This one got fucked with in the intervening years so it’s taped on the back of the upper left corner. Note the Aqua Teen Hunger Force reference in panel 2. I guess I’d recently learned that Crohn’s Disease is someone’s name and not a super-mean disease name for old scary women, or crones, as the fairy tales say, and felt the need to create contrast.

I recall one of my friends being very pleased with the idea of Doom Porn after I made it up, as doom metal was a hot button in those days. He’s like what, is the porn like “uuhhhhhggghh” and he moved his hips downward really slowly. I’m like, exactly.
