Comic by Sparky Taylor from Adventures in Menstruating zine #7 (reprinted from #5), edited by Chella Quint.
Boxes, highlighting and arrows by me.

Though the days of couples carving their initials into treestumps and undeniable love-at-first-sight reside only in fiction, the fact is, you can't deny the appeal of falling in love while wrapping yourself in a Snuggie and slurping instant noodle soup. Online dating services allow users to construct and hide behind tippy-top versions of themselves and simultaneously lust over the photoshopped versions others. While one could argue that these websites such as OK Cupid attempt to build love from sham, statistics show that online dating was the root of  17% of last year's marriages. 

Two months after the fact, I'm finally getting around to cataloging zines I purchased or traded for at the Feminist Zinefest, held in Brooklyn on February 25.

There's going to be a panel with the authors of the graphic novel Marzi: A Memoir this Friday, October 28, in Butler Library, rm. 523 at 4:30. The novel takes a unique look at growning up under communist rule.
