New (and final) issue of Shotgun Seamstress

"The brand new and (gasp!) LAST issue of Shotgun Seamstress is here and is so good. There is so much in here: interviews with Trash Kit, Ms. Jacci Gresham, Leah Lakshmi Piepzna-Samarasinha, and (the one-and-only) Poly Styrene of the X-Ray Spex before her death earlier this year. Plus a Manifesta excerpt from Cocoa Puss- one of my favorite (and former Tacoma, Wa-based) zine, 80’s DC hardcore, a Camping comic, punk through the African diaspora, and more. But the highlight of this zine is Osa’s introduction, where she lays out what Shotgun Seamstress has meant in her life. And, while she says she never wanted it to be a personal zine, this brief moment of perzine sentimentality is so moving and important. 44 pages, half-legal size."
