Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This 280-page tome collects the entirety of Avow zine issues #11 through 16 and selected entries from the first ten issues as well. Avow is a collection of artwork and stories. Keith owes a few nods graphically to Aaron Cometbus but does a lot of his own ink drawings to develop more on creating his own style. He has done unique artwork for Microcosm, Submission Hold, Against Me!, HeartattaCk zine, and plenty more. His stories cut into the darker side of life showing growing up in a small coastal fishing town and the mischief that ensues each time he returns. He reminisces about the days when demo tapes were commonplace and CD-Rs were non-existent, puts a good spin on his tales of figuring out how to obtain his next meal, and learns a lot from society, the hardcore community, and college that he employs into the analysis in his writing. Keith is a great storyteller and does a good job of deeply probing his brain to share these stories.

Synopsis:

A big ol' whopping collection (issues 11-16 and selections from 1-10!) presented here as a one-stop-shop of a book. Keith Rosson's stories and art show him neck-deep in a hard-living knockaround life. This is existentialism done punk rock style with a good sense of humor to lighten up all the bloodletting. Keith has done artwork for Submission Hold, Against Me!, and HearttaCk (among many others) and the illustrations here do not disappoint. If you're into Burn Collector and Cometbus this is essential per-zine action!

Synopsis:

Keith Rosson's stories and art are gathered in this collection of issues 11–16 and selections from issues 1-10 of his zine Best of Intentions. With topics such as
punk-rock ideals, drinking, politics, and music, these essays are self-depricating and can be categorized as existentialism done punk-rock style.
