The Best of Intentions - The Avow Anthology by Keith Rosson

(Microcosm) This compilation of the fifteen year-old Avow zine is impressive not only because of the writerly late issues, with Keith's vivid vignettes about the insecurities of being a tattooed punk rocker in a cold world, but also because of the zine-ishness of early issues (there's a great Bikini Kill interview). Tales of getting his ass -kicked, great xerography and comix art, and an interview with  a dead artist's ghost make this hefty book worth  a look.
