Different Shades of Normal #3
It was difficult for me to read this zine, as the writing is very abstract and the ideas are very familiar. A randomly-chosen example is "And yeah, this world can suck sometimes but it doesn't always suck. Cause even though life can be rough, I know I'm not the only one fighting to make things right." Multiply this by 200 and you have the zine. There are lots of abstract observations about "life" and humanity and struggling. But I didn't read any ideas that were new or insightful or helpful. Also, the art doesn't come together with the text.
My favorite part of this zine was the ending where Zippity lists some facts about themself. It was nice to have something concrete.
