BLOG ZINE! The Most Interesting Man In The (Zine) World

by Kari Tervo

You want to talk zines, Gene? Then you should read the FAQ, Jack.

Oh, also? I haven't been getting a lot of my post office box mail since July. They thought I was dead.* So, if you sent me something for review, I just got it. And if you sent me a trade or something, I have things all sorted and will be tackling that stack regularly!

*I am not dead. Unless this is The Sixth Sense. In which case, you are also dead.** 

**Spoiler alert! Movies that came out in 1999 don't require spoiler alerts!

Proof I Exist #16
Rating: !!!
Price: $2
Billy the Bunny
iknowbilly@gmail.com

He doesn't need to go to Kinko's, because his zines reproduce asexually.  

He provides food-grade glue sticks to kindergarteners.  

He has never had an awkward interaction at a zine fest. 

His long-arm stapler is actually made from his arm.  

He is. . .THE MOST INTERESTING MAN IN THE (ZINE) WORLD!

Also, his zine, Proof I Exist #16, reviews itself! He's Billy the Bunny, and it's a good thing his zine reviews itself, because I used all my creative energy on those Most Interesting Man things. Here are a few nuggets you'll find/read about in this zine:
  • Embarrassing confessions
  • Gender bending
  • Navy ship slip-n-slides
  • Famous roommates
  • Thoughts on the noon vs. midnight distinction
  • An artistic habit unsettling to its subjects
  • Naked graffiti
  • He wants to see you naked, and he means that
As if that last one weren't enough.

In transparency, I want to let you know that Billy sent me Proof I Exist #16 as part of a donation to my volunteer project, Zines for Troops! I check out all the donations before I send them, in accordance with Operation Paperback guidelines (e.g., no racism, no pr()n). I was so delighted going through the thing that I want to encourage you guys to pick it up!

Billy also writes a number of other zines, and hosts a YouTube zine review show called Bling. You can find the latest episode, Bling 47, hyah. You should go watch it. I mean, his YouTube videos have won Oscars. . .
