It’s Not Hot Enough!

It’s Not Hot Enough!

Issue 1 (?)

If you happened to be in the right place at the right time (or if you read Ink Nineteen a few years ago), you’d definitely remember No Bare Feet , Mike Mullarkey’s ziniest of zines. And I say that in the kindest way — NBF contained just about every cliche you could imagine from a fanzine… except Mullarkey’s open and straightforward voice saved the stapled, photocopied publication from becoming its own cliche and placed it squarely in the realm of archetype. It was what others aspired to but didn’t quite achieve.

It’s Not Hot Enough! continues that fine tradition. Though Mullarkey is now in San Diego, this particular issue details (over ten pages, both sides, two columns, with plenty of [photocopied] pictures) Mike’s Texan routine, his thoughts and memories. Like a dam bursting at the therapist’s, Mike unburdens himself, but in a manner so light-hearted and positive that it is actually refreshing to hear about his weirdnesses. Send $1.50 to:
