Three issues of this late 1980's Gloucester art zine from the Discordian milieu, which describes itself in the first issue as "sort of a Newsletter/Billboard/Soapbox/ Rant Space and/or Creative Outlet for several groups / non-groups &/or other organizations / Disorganizations such as the 2nd or 3rd Psychic Church of Julie Newmar & Hot Dog Stand, The Correspondence Conspiracy Co-Op, the Chipped Paint Legion of the Church of Wood Island, and the Manchuck Assassination Investigation Machine (MAIM), among others." The zine included comics, much material on assassinations, metaphysics, crime, chaos, etc. The third issue is an all-comics issue.
The list of contributors seem to largely be pseudonyms. Lansing is thanked in the foreward to the first issue.
OCLC suggests that no participating institutions hold the periodicals.
Very good with some minor toning and slight rusting to staples, and some occasional creasing. Item #27470
