Amber the Arsonist #12

This zine opens rather oddly: with reviews of previous issues from other publications. So before I’ve read more than two pages of the zine I’m incredibly worried. Is it just going to be about soap operas?

Thankfully it’s not, though they are briefly mentioned (along with the superbowl and baseball; these are not the contents I expect from zines!), instead there’s random snippets from Rebecca’s life, passages from emails she’s sent to people, random quotes, and reviews of other zines.

The best part of the zine are the emails she sent to her friends while she was temping for a cult. That seems like the strangest temp experience you could have, and I’m glad I never experienced it. Brrrrr. Crazy people are scary.
