Underworld Crawl #5

Underworld Crawl #5
40 Pages, Pocket Size

This is a nicely produced little zine. This issue is all about contempt for work, bosses, and co-workers. It begins with observations on the absurdity of motivational campaigns and corporate job-love rhetoric, and I find it somewhat pathetic, despite the obvious ability of R. Lee to write. Just as I am thinking this is going to be one long ice pick in the eye, he grinds it into gear recounting stories of the workplace and the thing lurches forward. There is nothing particularly pleasant or enlightening for the remainder of the ride, but to the extent he sticks to storytelling and steers away from propagating, it ends up being a very readable series of glimpses into this slice of his life.
