My copies of the beautifully designed clip-art zine Crap Hound are among my most treasured possessions. Sean Tejaratchi, the creator, has a Kickstarter to reprint Volume #6, which has a theme of "Death, Telephones & Scissors!"

All the new material is in the supplement, the only change to the magazine from the 3rd edition is the cover.
