Razorcake #76, #77, #78

( Between the comics, Rev. Norb, and at least one good feature an issue, there is more to actually read in a contemporary Razorcake then there was in some of the best issues of MRR in the 80s (when the ads and brief scene reports were the best things in it and the interviews/features/half the columns were unreadable). Obviously it was cooler to be punk rock when punk rock meant more (pre Internet, Green Day on Broadway, Hot Topic, etc.), but I still think Razorcake has carved out a pretty decent spot in punk zine history. I'm also noticing (especially in issue #77) that they have some pretty stellar band photography, which gives you something to dig about the band interviews if you aren't into the bands.
