MRR Review

In the new issue of Maximum RocknRoll (#364) Dreams of Donuts #17 gets a pretty nice review! 

Dreams of Donuts #17
This cute little comic-zine really amused me.  Heather is currently living in Sacramento, but used to live in the Bay.  Part of this issue is about a visit she recently made back to Oakland.  It was interesting to see places I've been to mentioned.  This girl is a pretty talented artist, as well.  While her artwork is relatively simple, sequential art is really hard to do and despite this, her stories were very coherent and readable.  Props!  She also interviewed a friend of hers about his walking-trip from Reno Nevada to Seattle Washington.  I really appretiated that this story isn't a Crimethinc. tale- no one's life problem's get fixed forever by having an amazing adventure.  The dude does this amazing thing and is still kind of sad and miserable afterwards.  However, based on the kinds of things this guy says in the interview, I don't think I really like him as a person and that made it hard for me to appreciate this particular part of the zine.  Overall, I'd say this is a really cute perzine that reps local Cali shit.  I'd like to keep my eye on it.  It doesn't hurt that Heather mentions people I know in her acknowledgments sections.  I love to see my buddies get props!  (AR)

See, it's nice!  Thanks AR!  Also I got in the zine top 10!!!

P.S. Sacto's own RAD get's an interview in this issue too by Sacto's own Ken Fury.
