It’s been a while since Logos has carried Cometbus, but here it is! Just in time for the new edition, Cometbus #54 In China With Greenday. This latest edition compares choices he and his friends made in the 90’s, the way they viewed those choices then, and how they view them now. It is a fascinating conversation between the elegance and virtue of DIY culture and the difficulties of sustaining that lifestyle.
For those of you who have never read Cometbus before, let share this beautiful quote from Wikipedia which sums up my feelings quite well:
Cometbus captured a slice of life in Oakland and Berkeley, California from the late 1980s through the 1990s. This includes squatting, collective living, falling in love and other perils of the punk rock lifestyle. His writing is characterized by stories of loneliness and alienation, tempered with episodes of brightness and perennial hope in the ability of humans to connect to one another.
