The first page introduces the zine as "A few drawings & bits loosely based around serial killers. Cool."
Uhm. I know that popular culture in the western world (and perhaps other parts), are totally obssessed with serial killers, but I don't really care for them. Sure there are some good pieces of fiction about them (that issue of Sandman for example), but I'm at the point where I just ignore anything that mentions Jack the Ripper or most other killers.
Inside this zine there are some drawings, a creepy account of impaling woodlice/carpenters on pins as a small child, and some other stuff. None of it really stood out to me, and the fact that it's apparently all based around serial killers kind of puts a bad taste in my mouth. The success of movies and stuff about them probably puts me in the minority on that one though.
