What Kerouac was to the Beat Generation, Aaron Cometbus is to the East Bay punk scene. Here is his well-loved zine. This issue is devoted entirely to one story: “The Loneliness of the Electric Menorah.” Chapters include “Rambam,” “The Food-wearing Jew,” “The Hungry Oy,” “The Kingdom of Shambala,” and more. Writing and b&w illustrations.

Cometbus, published since 1981, may be America’s longest-running underground magazine. Each issue is different, some featuring novel-length prose from editor Aaron Cometbus, others filled with short stories, interviews, and art from a cast of hundreds —plus the occasional all-comic, flier, or audio edition. This issue contains: Best-ever account of Bookstore Wars. While specific to Berkeley’s Telegraph Avenue and the genius/lunacy of Moe, it will make anyone who has lived in a college town laugh with recognition. Hell, you just have to be human and literate to love this issue.
