Winter of the Mind by Nick Norman. $7. Oversize format, 20 pages, black and white cover and interiors.

Nick Norman checks in with another zine that at first offers primarily visual thrills, but upon reading, reveals itself to be quite a prose statement as well. Norman's work is unlike a lot of his peers: while the visuals impress greatly, there is real emotion coming from his writing. Basically, he's a true cartoonist with words and pictures working in concert. This zine offers up a running monologue of dark, critical thoughts directed at the creator of such thoughts. More great stuff from Norman.
