I prefer to read words accompanied by pictures and so I naturally gravitate toward the comic zines in the Zine Collection. Of all the comic zines I have read, I recommend that you check out You Ain’t No Dancer Vol. 3. This solid anthology has bunches of comics from 30 creators. As in past volumes of YAND, there’s more than a few creepy comics, funny comics and weird comics to wet your appetite and (fortunately) there are no super-hero comics. Well, there may be one super-villain comic, but I’ll let you figure out which one that is. Overall, the artwork and writing are great but a few stand out. Jason Turner’s romantic “The Day of the Builders” is one of the best in this anthology. You can also see his work in the True Love series right here in our own Zine Collection. Another bright spot is “War of the Acorns” by Lars Brown. I love the image of the woman with the acorn in her teeth. That image alone makes this book worth checking out.
