from Heckler #46: My two fave zines this month are polar opposites. Skatedork has been written about previously in these pages, but it keeps getting better, so here goes again. Skatedork is all about having fun skating. B&W zine style layouts that are half computer, half cut & paste with above average photo quality for a zine, with a design ethic that keeps getting cooler. But the best part of Skatedork is the writing. Check out TWSk8 for the inspiring photos and then check this zine for the inspiring writing. There's a bit of a punk rock ethos to the zine, with columns up front and articles on things like friendship and bearing maintenance. gave us a nice review.
