"This issue's centerpiece is an article on John Holmstrom, the publisher of 'Punk' and the one to blame for putting the word into my vocabulary. It serves as a companion to the history of Bay Area bookstores (and alternative culture) in Cometbus #51. On the one hand it is the story of a man and his mag, but it is also a journey through half a century of underground publishing, with Holmstrom as the link between many different coloful characters and the forces they represent."
