Gang Bang Bong #2 by Ginette Lapalme and Ines Estrada $10.00 – Want a tremendous 100% solid anthology of experimental comics? GANG BANG BONG!!!! It’s like if Gary Panter raised 33 feral children, each one with a different diet of psychotropic drugs and B vitamins. Standout moments in a pile of great are Ana Albero’s cafeteria blues, Johnny Negron’s horny porny kool squirts, Abraham Díaz’s rat face dumpty chaos, and Aisha Franz’s fryin’ lion. There’s more too, like new work from house favorites Mickey Zacchilli. Michael DeForge, Lizz Hickey, Aidan Koch and Austin English. I’m more than happy to vouch for this one. -EF
Black Mass #5 by Kyle Patrick $5.00 – The build up to The Big Punk Off continues in furious dripper dropper style as Patrick Kyle’s Black Mass rages on. This issue is full of unsane ramble-ly tangents, which is the bloody beating spaghetti sauce heart of the series. The punks bicker over toilet lager, Bizarro Turdswallo sux a soul, Dingball flashes back to the charmed 40 that changed his game and Turdswallo Junior sorta undorks. Meanwhile, Turdswallo Proper gets his mojo back and thee punx swarm. There’s secrets, mutiny, goofy murder, shapes with no scientific name, fucked up drawings of the Crass logo, and maybe someone has some weed, too. On top of that, the plot is both funny and cohesive and the dialogue is so clowny, its fresh again. It’s tops, get all of theeze. -EF
