The Lowbrow Reader #12 edited by Jay Ruttenberg. $4. 36 pages, black and white.
I've been following Lowbrow Reader for close to two decades now...editor Jay Ruttenberg continues to put out a unique zine, focused on comedy but more accurately described as a zine lit mag with a wide range of tones and interests. Any issue of Lowbrow Reader is exactly what zines (in my opinion should be): free in approach and form of critique...and, in Lowbrow's case, very funny. This issue features poetry by Richard Hell (!!) and articles on Rodney Dangerfiled. If you want a real publication enthusiasts publication, this is for you.
