Issue Five - "The Final Issue"
In 1991, Caroline Azar, Jena von Brucker, G.B. Jones, Johnny Noxzema and Rex released Double Bill.
Often referred to a 'hatezine' (as opposed to 'fan'-zine), or sometimes as an 'anti-zine', Double Bill introduced a new category into the the self-publishing world. Double Bill compares two Bills: fat actor William Conrad, star of Cannon, Jake and the Fatman and Nero Wolfe, as well as narrator of Rocky and Bullwinkle, to too-thin William Burroughs, misogynist wife killer and pederast. Burroughs invariably comes up short.
Five issues of this cut and paste zine were published from its headquarters in Toronto, Canada, during its run from 1991 till 2001. The zine was nominated for a Trillium Award in 1992, and was the subject of several articles in magazines such as The Village Voice, usually provoking angry letters to the editor in response.
