Double Bill [No. 1]

Toronto: Bitch Nation/S.K.A.G. 2000, [1991]. [28] pp. 8vo. Saddle-stapled in illustrated self-wrappers. Photocopied with drawings, comix, and photo- collages throughout. Minor rubbing along spine, else fine.

First issue (of five total) of this Toronto queer fanzine-cum-hatezine, co-created by a number of that scene’s most notable figures, including G. B. Jones, Jena von Brücker, and Johnny Noxzema. The zine was devoted to the simultaneous denigration of American writer William Burroughs and the rather unexpected championing as queer hero of William Conrad, an American actor perhaps best known for playing the lead in mid-1970s detective television series Cannon. The zine opens with surprisingly earnest (given the subject matter) introductions by Brücker and Noxzema; thereafter comprised of various texts, drawings, comix, photo-collages, etc. The centerfold is a swastika-shaped board game called “Nowheresville,” whose stated object is to “land exactly on the ‘LAWRENCE, KANSAS’ space at the heart of the swastika,” which features an image of Burroughs’s face. Scarce; OCLC locates only three libraries holding any issues. (Bronson and Aarons, Queer Zines, 2nd Ed., p.56).
