Peach Melba Issue 11
PO Box 74
Someday I will manage to catch up on all the issues of Peach Melba Pearl has put out and actually finish reviewing all of them. But not today. Not that reading these zines is a bad thing, as Peach Melba is my favourite intricately folded zine created by an incredibly prolific 13-year-old girl. Actually, as that’s a category of one (or is it?), I should just say that it’s just one of my favourite zines in general.
This is one of the smaller issues, and to be honest I really prefer it when Pearl uses both sides of the paper instead of stapling it so only one side is visible. But that’s not to say there isn’t rad stuff in here; there are lists of different types of cat, things Pearl has never said (“George Bush is my hero”), clichés Pearl hates, and things that she’s learnt from watching Scooby Doo (which was reprinted in another issue I read, but is still funny the second time around).
To be honest, at the end of the day this zine is literally a 1000% rollercoaster ride of awesomeness. And that's all the clichés I can fit into one sentence.
