Twilight World #8 [January 2011]

12 pages, 11" x 8.5", $2.00, Don Fields, 266 Ramona Avenue, Grover Beach CA 93433, USA + oddlystupid [at] yahoo [dot] com + donosdump.com + "somewhere at Etsy.com"

This issue gets off to a great start, where Don in his introduction traces the beginnings of his "art life". I found myself nodding [nodding along, that is, not nodding off] to his list of "the usual suspects ... Factsheet Five, Love & Rockets, R. Crumb, Dan DeCarlo, 8-Track Mind, Evan Dorkin, Peter Bagge, Flaming Carrot and too many more... and near top of that list is Harvey Pekar."
 Don tells the story of finally meeting Harvey at the 1992 San Diego Comic Con.

I love the note in Don's 'Thanks' section... "...and to those of you who are still reading this fine print nonsense, this zine was named after a Swing Out Sister single, NOT from those stupid 'Twilight' movies and books...and if you still want to believe it, go get a fucking life and watch some old 'Buffy The Vampire Slayer' episodes! I'm not a fan of this show either, but it has better writing and a sense of humor!"

There's a terrific piece about Super Fanboys [featuring two in particular] and their main targets at conventions - Artists For Hire; some fantastic drawings of "..old parts of Vegas that nobody remembers and cares for." and a couple pages of reviews, including the audiobook of John Waters's Role Models.

TW has rapidly zoomed up my Top Ten Favourite Zines chart!

Thanks for the positive words on this issue....also thanks for forcing me to unload the dust and spiders webs out of my LJ account, which I hadn't touched in 6 years.

As you can tell, I HAD to do something when Pekar passed away....other than playing the soundtrack from his movie over and over in his honor. So much sacrificing my hearing in the name of the arts.

Re: Thanks
No worries! And glad I could help with the dust and spiders!

You will receive another diary comix collection from me any day now, along with a letter bugging you for more of your back issues. Heh heh!
