Potential Mode #3

Potential Mode #3
digest, 24 pages, $2 + $1 shipping
Another installment of Jeremy's zine features more of the same: bits of stories told mainly in comic form that are continuations from previous issues and remain unconcluded in this issue. I would categorize the bulk of the stories as fantasy, which is fine except that the offerings are so brief that it is difficult to really develop any interest in them. Most of my appreciation for this zine is for the artwork, which, for the most part, I am consistently impressed with. I think the highlight of this issue is the first act of a two act musical play featuring a bored housewife yearning for excitement and her clueless and ambivalent husband. Excitement ensues, but it's probably not the excitement that the wife was looking for. Song lyrics are included, but you'll have to make up your own music for them.
