Zine Review: Cloud Factory #3

Cloud Factory #3
48 pages / $2.50

Ryan is in jail. Laura is not. They collaborate on Cloud Factory, a zine that on the surface seems to explore a self-limiting concept. Yet it isn’t. Issue three is as immediate and essential as the first two. Ryan’s writing digs below the mask self to expose the reality of days lived in the tedious & torturous milieu we call jail. In his artwork we glimpse his psyche bled out on paper – intense, intricate, naked. The energy that Laura and Ryan invest in Cloud Factory is almost tangible. You will not find a more compelling zine.
