Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Initially a showcase for underground music reviews, Cometbus has evolved to include interviews, essays, short stories, and reader forums. Covering everything from travel adventures to dumpster diving, Cometbus forms a literary soundtrack for the lives of its readers. Despite Everything contains dozens of photos, illustrations, and the best material from all 48 issues of Cometbus, one of the original punk zines. ?One of the finest examples of self-publishing in the United States today.... [Cometbus] could be the best-loved zine ever.? ? San Francisco Bay Guardian

Synopsis:

Collected here are selections from the first twenty years of Cometbus; including the ultra-rare intros, notes, and a scrapbook.

Joshua Okrent, January 5, 2011 (view all comments by Joshua Okrent)
Cometbus is a legendary zine, self-published irregularly for more than 20 years from locations around the world. This is an extensive retrospective collection, weighing in at more than 600 pages, featuring comics, interviews, low-budget trips through Europe, stories of hitchhiking, reviews of coffee, cereal, bookstores, and lots of punk rock adventures. Cometbus remains a testament to what can be done when an artist rigorously applies DIY punk ethics to his own life. Entertaining and inspiring.

Even though it is no lightweight pocket paperback, this is great road trip reading.
