This issue of BP gets off to a very funny start - page three has a photo of Dann seconds after being accidentally head-butted by bare-breasted stripper and People columnist Jewell. Haw! But as Dann writes, "It's OK, she consoled me afterwards."
Also in this issue: Amanda Palmer; Lady Gaga; Dann's gig report of a Murder Junkies [GG Allin's band] show; Canadian gay comix creator Patrick Fillion; Jim Balent's Tarot: Witch Of The Black Rose; Dann's criticism of Erik Larsen's Savage Dragon superhero comic series (with replies from Larsen); Dann's quest to read 30+ years worth of Legion of Super-Heroes; Dann's "irrational love for B'wana Beast" [DC comic]; a Sticky interview with Dann; street art making a comeback in Sydney; a tribute to Scream Queens; a hatchet job on Ben Elton [Ha! Good! - SS]; a "Stone Cold" Steve Austin interview; Randy "Macho Man" Savage; Tura Satana [1938-2011]; Bob Guccione [1930-2010]; Musings on Stripping; a couple of Great Feuds Of Our Time (Tila Tequila vs The Juggalos, and Jessi Slaughter [age 11] vs The 4Chan Trolls).
And of course many, many photos of gorgeous women in various states of undress. And more! This baby is jam packed. The only minus is that I can't read BP on the bus (and you know how I LOVE to read on the bus, especially zines). With breasts and butts (and even gigantic cartoon cocks in this issue) popping out from almost every page, this zine is not public transport-friendly.
