6 pages, 11.5" x 8.5"

HY! comes out monthly. Pretty amazing, I don't know how they do it. Even when one of them went to prison this frequency was maintained! For a few pages stapled in the top left hand corner with a raw, cut 'n' paste layout, this zine is extremely addictive. The first page always features Mark's poetry. What? You don't like poetry? HY! will change your mind. Also still running is Gary's prison diaries which are wonderful to read, as are Mark's tales of travelling to and attending gigs and what kind of beer he bought and how much it was.
Like many others, I love making lists, and HY! would be firmly in my Top 5 Zines of Today. Great stuff! And regular! HY! truly spoils its readers.
