FurryTimes #1


via NeuFutur Magazine by admin on 2/13/08

This is a very cute little zine that places animal species in the roles that one would usually attribute to humankind. Pieces in this magazine include interviews with Monica Lewinsky’s cat, Umberto, a trans-species cat, and a cat that teaches other cats and mice how to successfully co-exist. Every piece in this magazine is immensely funny, and not for the simple fact that they are talking animals, but because Melinda, the writer, makes the humor situational from the viewpoint of the animals directly. If one is looking for a short zine that is extremely fun, clean, and cute for everyone, I would whole-heartedly say to pick up this little zine. There are simply no pieces that fall flat on their faces, and actually, to the contrary, all the pieces are short, funny, and don’t leave anything to be desired. I realize that this review is extra-ordiniarily short, but that is because there just doesn’t need to be any commentary with this zine. I mean, it is so much harder to write praise for a magazine instead of cutting it down to its constituent parts. So, while you can, send a dollar to Melinda Smith, 3037 Woodland Hills #35, Ann Arbor, MI 48108.

Rating : 6.5/10.
