The inaugural issue of this simple 28 page zine (dubbed vagabond #4 incognito), features a wrap-around cover by Ang Kiukok, tightly packed with artwork and comics by Mike Tolento, Bitter Pie, G. Tod Slone and Brian Hagen, among many others, comic and zine reviews, some letters, a short story and a couple poems for good measure... the printer dude at Copy Max, upon scanning through the pages as they were being copied, ceased looking me in the eyes... he actually flinched when I offered him one at the end and said "OH NO!"
Perhaps the material was a little harsh for joe schmoe the copy guy. With images of dudes jerking off, getting blow jobs, talking to hags pissing on the street... the Karl Koweski story JESUS FUCKER illustrated by Low Down, religious zealots shoving a cross down somebody's throat... the poem by Gary Goude that begins "God sucks dick / Fuck you / God" ... Colin Delzell's sketches of iggy pop and deborah harry bar-b-queing, joey ramone and richard hell sitting on a couch hanging out with yoko ono and blondie, patty smith, lou reed's lincoln lean ... and straightjacket fashions by Jennifer Stanley ...
The zine that was rejected by its namesake, a favor gone awry, the future of phampleteria, and the last of its kind, the vis-a-septic zine remains like roadkill on the ventura freeway, something you don't want to miss. beat that blaspemy, mother fuckers.
