Coffeeshop Crushes: Tales of Love and Lust in Coffee Establishments

Coffeeshop Crushes: Tales of Love and Lust in Coffee Establishments Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This is the third edition of Nicole Georges & Jon Van Oast's compilation zine acataloging the sometimes awkward, sometimes painful interaction between the java we love and the dreamboats who sell it...the zine is split between amusing anecdotes about secret crushes and illustrated comics that chart jittery attempts to gain the attention of beloved baristas. While a good many of the crushes remain simply that, a few gain purchase as lusty encounters of promise that end with embarrassing failures or broken hearts.aaUtne Reader

Includes contributions from Nicole (Invincible Summer), Shannon Wheeler (Too Much Coffee Man), Shawn Granton (10' Rule), James Squeaky (Sincere Brutality), Lizz Zitron, Greig (Clutch), Aaron Renier (Spiral Bound), Rainman, Nate Beaty (Brainfag), Brad Adkins (Charm Bracelet), as well as MANY anonymous pieces (go figure ).

Synopsis:

As raunchy and graphic as it is sweet and coy, this compilation is full of sex, lies, and über-embarrassing shoot-downs. The sexy, confusing, hilarious realm of server/customer romance (both requited and, sadly, otherwise) is humorously explored with contributions from folks like Too Much Coffee Man's Shannon Wheeler, Brainfag cartoonist Nate Beaty, and Constant Rider's Kate Lopresti.
