Weekly Top 10

1. Cometbus #54 In China With Green Day by Aaron Cometbus $4.00 – Okay, mister, so you’re old friends with Green Day and they ask you to join them on their bonkers tour of China. Of course you’re going to do that. Don’t tell me you’re too punk for your old friends, cause that sounds pretty fucking pretentious. Just join them for a little piece of their crazy-ass ride and see what happens, ‘kay? Oh, wait….you’re not old friends with Green Day? Well, Aaron-Fucking-Cometbus is and was in this very situation and not only did he go on tour with Green Day, he also wrote this huge, funny, frought and generally terrific issue of his zine about corporate tour mayhem and sorting it all out. It’s awesome, in case you needed me to tell you that. -EF

2. Cursed Pirate Girl TPB by Jeremy A. Bastian (Olympian) $20.00
3. Coming Insurrection by The Invisible Committee (Semiotext[e]) $12.95 – This eloquent call to arms arising from the recent waves of social contestation in France and Europe is written by the anonymous Invisible Committee in the vein of Guy Debord—and with comparable elegance—it has been proclaimed a manual for terrorism by the French government (who recently arrested its alleged authors). One of its members more adequately described the group as “the name given to a collective voice bent on denouncing contemporary cynicism and reality.” The Coming Insurrection is a strategic prescription for an emergent war-machine to “spread anarchy and live communism.”

4. Handbook vol 5 #1 2011 by by Darren Ackenbauer $6.00 – Super cruisy scene over here.

5. Boneshaker #43-100: A Bicycling Almanac (Wolverine Farm Publishing) $8.00

6. Uptown Problems #1 Win 10 11 $4.00 – From the tender side of twenty comes a tell-it-like-it’s-been “aborted journal of radical self help” ladelled out in snippets with the bitterness and bravado of a washed up child actor. -EF

8.    Maximumrocknroll #333 Feb 11 $4.00

Weekly Top 10

1. Jin & Jam #1 by Hellen Jo (Sparkplug) $5.00 – Jin and Jam is a head-on collision of California 2 Cool 4 School and Tekkon Kinkreet. -Yeah, it really is that good. Hellen Jo’s drawings are perfect and her action-packed San Jose misfit tween girl rampage fights dirty the whole way through. It’s an impeccable tornado of an issue and if you come out with a black eye and gum in your hair, you’ll consider yourself lucky. -EF

2. Spotting Deer by Michael DeForge (Koyama) $5.00 – Michael DeForge continues to wrangle an Elvis Studio sense of drippy design chaos into creepy and beautiful amorphous narratives. This is a comic that’s about a field guide that’s about an oil-skinned mollusc that’s really about cultural displacement, wikipedian information templates and the fetishization/exploitation/commodification of subcultures and identities. Heavy- but full of laffs, in bleedy full color, and with a great slug sex scene to boot. -EF

4. Ice Haven by Dan Clowes (Pantheon) $16.00 – Same ol’ Haven, now in softcover to match your old Garfield books.
