Woe to the comedy fan who insists that print is dead; he or she is going to miss out on Pendulous Breasts Quarterly, a new comedy zine (yes, a zine) helmed by John Harris of The Onion. According to Harris, Pendulous Breasts Quarterly takes as its primary inspiration Simpsons writer George Meyer’s Army Man, a comedy zine that ran for three issues in the late ‘80s and garnered a strong cult following.
But Army Man — and zines in general had their heyday before the Internet was widely available, so Pendulous Breasts Quarterly needs to boast an impressive roster of artists and comedy writers in order to gain attention, right? That’s why its contributors include writers from 30 Rock, The Colbert Report, The Onion newspaper, The Onion News Network, Vanity Fair, and cartoonists whose work has appeared in The New Yorker.
You can preview Pendulous Breasts Quarterly at this Tumblr. And if you’re then still on the fence about paying for dead-tree content created by a team with unassailable comedic merit, you should know that all profits will be donated to the venerated 826 National tutoring organization.
Also, how fun will it be to meet an acquaintance for coffee and casually ask, “Have you read the new Pendulous Breasts Quarterly?”
