Fanzine Miguel #19
I have almost no idea what is going on in here. The comics in this zine are written almost entirely in Spanish or Portuguese (my knowledge of those languages basically doesn’t exist) except for occasional words or phrases like “capitalist alienation”.
There are a few comics that are in English, but they seem to contain considerably less text than some of the others, and the English in them isn’t the greatest. However, based on them, and what I can figure out of the other ones, these are autobio comics about travelling around Europe, and talking about zines, punk, and politics.
The art is simplistic to the point where the characters are all armless blobs, but I thought it was cute, even if I wondered how these armless blobs used computers or played guitars. There’s also a comic with some sort of wolf monster that made me laugh out loud despite not having any idea what the characters were saying, and the page below which I really liked.
