Zinewatch Episode 3


Wednesday, March 29, 2006
 
What's new on the 'zine front? Glad you asked.

First up, those fine fellows at ThugLit bring you Issue 6, full of - wait, let's let them tell it:


  • A Super needs to find a way to save the kids in his building from the Meth lab they call home.

  • A man is given the choice: rob the bank or lose your wife.

  • When you're ex-girlfriend shoots you in the face and steals the drugs, what's a man to do?

  • A tricky car alarm forces some fast answers... From the man who's boosting it.

  • They say it takes a thief to catch a thief. What if you're trying to catch a killer?

  • A P.I. goes south of the border to find a Senator's daughter and scope out the burrow she's in... Or the burro that's in her.

  • A man of the cloth tries to be his own avenging angel.

  • If you're going to mess with another man's wife, make sure that man doesn't have a gun.

  • The best laid plans of mice and men often go awry. This also applies to convenience store robbers.

  • What do you do when the man inside might snitch? Then, how do you get him outside?

  • A crippled detective needs to help his punk rock princess's boyfriend broker some valuable gardening implements.

  • When the price is flesh, you don't care who pays. As long as it ain't you.
