8. Truckface #13 by LB $3.00- A huge little zine about a nerve-wracking rookie year teaching reading and writing to high school freshmen. This would basically be my nightmare job, and LB minces no words about how impossible, frustrating and life-consuming it can seem- but at the same time, there’s tons of funny shenanigans and the illustrations are beyond good, in a madcap Esther Pearl Watson way. An epic account of struggling through the school year and making out the other end with your sense of the ridiculous and amazing intact. -EF
