DEAFULA!

Fook yeah. I am overarching the moon over so many copies/issues of this zine in my greasy mitts. Deafula is a ’70s horror movie done entirely in American Sign Language, but also, & even betterly, it is Kerri’s funny, no bullshit reflection on her experience of deafness. Over four issues & counting she covers a lotta ground – the deafness spectrum, the Deaf/deaf community, deaf-hearing communication, sign language(s), health insurance & associated fuckarounds, employment & more. It’s a humbling opportunity to see inside the life of a deaf person in a predominantly hearing world and is a rad resource for allies.

I have issues #1, #2 & #4! Hit me up for copiez if yr keen.

Aw yeah! So there are a buncha new titles up you should take a gander at if yr so inclined:

Abolish Restaurants. Part anti-capitalist analysis, part call-to-arms against the hospitality industry. Read it & weep.

Al-Habaab. Most adorbs of all time, illustrated plays on words of حَبيبي (my beloved) in Arabic.

Both by Chance & Circumstance. The final word on funemployment.

Cheap Toys #8 & #9. Punk show travel zine in English & French.

As always, ya can peruse/cruise on the Etsy, or read more here.
