Who and What We Are

Xerography Debt is a review zine for zine readers by zine writers (and readers). It is a hybrid of review zine and personal zine (the ancestor to many blogs). The paper version has been around since 1999. This blog thing is are attempt to bridge the gap between Web 2.0 and Paper 1.0. Print is not dead, but it is becoming more pixelated.

This submission for review came in without a review sheet, so I'm not sure how much it costs. Some googling led to online outlets (it's on Amazon and Barnes & Noble for $7.99, so I'm going with that), which is probably where you'd need to order it as well. It's a perfect-bound book done in black & white, featuring stories that have never before been published. Most of it is pretty squarely placed in the horror/Twilight Zone genre, spooky stories, dark thoughts, death -- if you're into horror, you'll dig this collection. The construction of the comics themselves are bold and the book is clearly organized, including an introduction about Dissmeyer's work and the period of time in which he composed these works (I mean, over a span of two years, this is a lot of work!). It's a solid book with a substantial amount of material.
