A group of incredibly talented trans writers and artists — including music critic Niko Stratis and comic artist Mattie Lubchansky of The Nib — have come together to produce this delightful new fanzine offering critical trans perspectives on The Fast & The Furious franchise.
I mean, just look at that cover!
Here's the official blurb, via BigCartel:
More than 40 trans writers and artists have joined forces to explore the deeper meanings of the Fast & Furious franchise (and also gender). There's really no way to know why this exists, but it does, and you can own it! Suitable for F&F fans and newcomers alike. Contributions include:
– A new short story by Manhunt author Gretchen Felker-Martin
– A demolition derby driver's perspective on 2 Fast 2 Furious's derby scene
– An essay contemplating the queer symbolism of Cipher's bowl cut
– The scoop on the franchise's only canonically nonbinary character
– Instructions for an F&F-themed tabletop roleplaying game
– A contemplation of which Taylor Swift album represents each F&F character
Plus: Bingo cards! Comics! Haiku! And, of course, hot gay erotica…
2 Trans 2 Furious is edited by Tuck Woodstock & Niko Stratis, with cover art by Mattie Lubchansky and zine design by Shay Mirk.
This zine is 8.5" x 5.5" and perfect-bound like a real book — fancy! Interior pages are black & white. We're guessing this baby is like 100 pages long but we'll get back to you on that.
If you want a copy, head on over to BigCartel — they're $18 a pop. Currently only shipping in the US, though the creators plan to add Canadian shipping and a PDF option soon.
