(aka Vol 2, Issue 1)
Squid Grrrl: Nedra Frangelico
Print run: 400(?)
Notes: The first issue that we actually printed out on our free craigslist copier, Sanjay2, saving a truly massive amount of cash. Layout by Natalie Ferguson. Funpage puzzle comparing Barack Obama with Baraka from Mortal Kombat completely fails to garner controversy.
Includes our first and most successful movie parody, “Touch My Pecs!”, which totally jumbles the plotline of 300, because Editor D has never seen the film.
