MISADVENTURES & MUSINGS FROM THE TRAIN BRAIN - ADAM VOID
This dense zine packs in multiple stories of the nostalgia, pain, and sublime found in the adventure of "roughing it". From freight trains, to rope swings, and wolf reservations; the Train Brain will not disappoint.
"In Misadventures & Musings from the Train Brain Adam Void jumps the present day rails, and this is a catalogue of those journeys: the yearning for the vast expanse of landscape, the thrill and reality of riding open porches, the dust of experience. Adam's zines have a distinctive style, partly the result of the cut & paste of urgent typewriter. But the writing is compelling too, and brings to mind some of the early work of Cometbus - I guess the wanderlust of this issue also helps contribute to that."
Nathan Penlington - Syndicated Zine Reviews
"Old school design, yahoo!!! I love the aesthetics of this publication - lots of black and white photos and collages. This works well. Here you get a lot to read - honestly, a lot - and I'm glad about it! ... I hope that I get the chance to read another issue of this very well-done zine."
