In this edition of the comic book, Baby Dyke goes motorcycle riding, gets lessons in looking butch and "packing", goes to a Tribe 8 show.

Girlhero Issue 3
The cover of this comic features a diorama of a drawing of a woman that's been riveted to a wooden cross and photographed so it has shadows and looks 3-d. I thought the highlight of the issue was a really cool story about two temp workers, one from the past, one from the present, who switch time periods. The woman who's travelled to the future can't figure out the copier, while the woman who's travelled to the past can't take shorthand. Both of them have lecherous bosses. This issue also includes another episode of the story of Bottlecap and her riveter friends who are organizing against the Boehaeuser corporation. The battered wife of the corporation's president is hiding Animata, after a bomb blast that blew up the rebels' hideout.

Teen Fag Issue 4
*The theme of this "Damage Control Special" issue is bad homos, people the gay community would rather not acknowledge. Gordon Gordon and his writers do some in-depth research on queer serial killers and other skeletons in the community's closet. By the way, in his editorial, Gordon clarifies that despite the name of the zine, he's not actually a teenager. Dion Hansen explains why she hates Camille Paglia, who's so busy complaining about lesbians that she never manages to mention Tribe 8 or Susie Bright. Miles Long profiles several Gay Republicans, whom he refers to as "House Niggers of the New Right." Kathy Sawhill report on the Pro-Life Alliance of Gays and Lesbians (PLAGAL), a group of homos who are actually anti-abortion. Gordon interviews Bill Andriette of the NAMBLA Bulletin, who joined NAMBLA at age 15. At the bloody heart of the issue are profiles of bad, bad homos Jeffrey Dahmer, Roy Cohn, John Wayne Gacy, Aileen Wuornos, "Patient Zero"ĘGaetan Dugas (though I think Teen Fag should have sought opinions besides Randy Shilts on this one), Leopold & Loeb, and the trio of queers from Tacoma who faked a hate-crime attack on their home. The review section includes an in-depth analysis of Boiled Angel and Baby Sue comics that is the sort of reviewing that should be undertaken by more zines. Plus lots of comics by Blair Wilson, Bea Bea, David Kelly, Goat Boy comics by C.A. Fig, VelVeeda, Tony "Anonymous Boy" Arena, Sarah Bell, etc.

When I grow Up i Want To Be Bobby Gillespie Issue 1-2
The way Dean Talent writes about bands, it's almost like prose-poems. The writing really captures the essence of the music in only a few words. But he also Blasts the music industry in true Wyndham Lewis style. And there's definite queer content, with pieces about kissing boys, wearing dresses, and a guy named Idaho. #1 includes pieces about the Voodoo Queens, American guitars (in general), Damon & Naomi, Pavement, writer Sarah Schulman, Suede (anti), Pussycat Trash, etc. #2 covers All About Chad, Bratmobile, Mambo Taxi, Bikini Kill, Heavenly, My Boyfriend's Dead, Madder Rose, and, strangely enough, Take That (the U.K. NKOTB).

Your Head On A Platter Issue 1
This is a dream diary zine. That isn't explicitly stated, but as I was reading it, I realized that the weird logic of the happenings in these pieces could only come from dreams. Another clue is the call for submissions: "Looking for dreams featuring: horses, gender trouble, swimming pools." One dream is about trying out for the part of a drag queen in a play. Another is about a whorehouse for both men and women. And one is about going to a piercing parlor where Jodie Foster works. There are also nice pen and ink drawings illustrating some of the dreams.
