Still Warm #1

Still Warm #1
digest, 32 pages, $?
A new compilation zine based in Australia. This issue has a loose childhood/children theme. Various contributors write about childhood experiences or things related to being a child. My favorite story was about a 5-year old who got drunk on wine and later experienced his first hangover. Another fun one was the comic of two young girls playing with toy ponies and expressing their very naive views on sex. Another interesting contribution that didn't really have much at all to do with childhood was an interview with an Anatomical Pathology Technician (a person who does autopsies). The layout of this zine is beautifully done and includes some great photography and artwork. The editors of this zine are seeking contributions for the second issue and would like to get the word out to people around the globe to send stuff in.
