I always had a deep affection for NOT MY SMALL DIARY. I celebrate the concept, diversity, and talent captured in every issue. I know, seven dollars is a lot to pay for a zine. But this zine reads like a who’s who in the self-publishing world. Plus, NMSD is thick, fabulous and re-readable.
Every issue centers around a single theme, and contains high-quality comics, stories and artwork. Issue #15 focuses on brushes with celebrities, including Madonna, Morrissey, Mr. T, Brad Pitt, the Beastie Boys, Kim Deal, Roger Ebert, DJ Premier, Mark Harmon, the Dalai Lama, Ron Jeremy, Robyn Hitchcock, Yoko Ono and more!
Highlights: Max Clotfelter’s Mr. T story, Ayun Halliday’s snarky and cute list of celebrity sightings, Aimee Hagerty Johnson’s comic about Sister Wendy Beckett and Carrie McNinch’s (of THE ASSASSIN AND THE WHINER ) exchange with Tammy Faye Messner.
