In the final days of the ’90s, poetry activist Juliette Torrez paired underground writers with up-and-coming comix artists, publishing their works in twenty-seven hand-stapled mini-zines brimming with gritty urban stories and comedic poetry, accompanied by quirky comic art. Excerpts from each mini-zine feature early works from David Cho, Jordan Crane, Steve Weissman, Ivan Brunetti, Beau Sia, Kevin Sampsell, James Tracy, and many others.
Editor Juliette Torrez co-founded Albuquerque’s Poetry Slam and co-organized the 1994 Lollapalooza Festival‘s poetry side stage. She is the author of three books, and lives in Oakland.
