Suicide or Die #1

Suicide or Die #1

by Shannon Meyer

If I were to describe Suicide or Die in one word, it would be "amazing."  If I could have two words, I'd add an expletive.  Subtitled "Suicide Throughout History," this zine does just that - take us down memory lane of famous, infamous, and lesser known suicides.  These are methodically broken down into categories and subcategories.  You'll find mass suicides dating back to The Battle of Numantia (133BC), well-known cult suicides such as the Jonestown Massacre (1978), the suicide pact of Cleopatra and Mark Antony, modern day internet suicide pacts in Japan, and dozens more.  Suicide or Die doesn't attempt to glorify or vilify suicide.  Instead, it works to document suicide throughout history within each occasion's context.  The brief, factual descriptions of each act of suicide will pull the reader in until the very last page.
