Ottawa Zine-Off Zine Roundup #17
Pancake, Issue #2, February 2014
by Sacha KW
22 pg. at half-letter size
A new issue of Pancake! I liked Issue 1 of this zine, which I picked up at the September zine-off, and was glad that Sacha was amenable to letting me stock it at the zine rack, since it is a funny, engaging zine by a young local writer, which is definitely a thing I would like the zine rack to be about. I’m also really into there being locally-focussed Ottawa zines now, where I can read about the people and things I know and love.
In Issue 2, Sacha writes an advice column, previews upcoming local shows, reviews records, and writes about lazer tag. There is even a picture of my roommate in this zine, it truly has everything. Also no big deal but I am thanked on the back cover along with the author’s parents! Sacha’s writing is funny and awesome and I look forward to reading more of it.
