Doris #25

Doris is a perzine created by Cindy Crabb. It covers topics such as gender roles, sexual abuse, anarchism, depression, and the author's personal musings. The zine often features stick-figure drawings as illustrations. Twenty-nine issues have been released. Many issues are photocopied, although at least one was printed on newsprint, ranging in size from mini to half-legal.

Reviews of Doris have described it as a "renowned personal zine" with "language that evokes the intimacy and immediacy of journal entries or letters between close friends" (Library Journal). "This cut and paste perzine is honest, intimate and raw. ... Cindy conveys her struggles, whether they be psychological (as a survivor of abuse) or physical (trying to camp in the freezing rain), in a fresh and unself-conscious way." (Zine World) Read More...
