This first issue of Catazine, conceived by Kathie Bender and funded by Rock Market, comes out swinging with heavy Black Flag adoration, complete with a Raymond Pettibon illustrated cover and an extensive interview with the band inside. Chock full of album reviews, comics and a mail order record store, Catazine’s professional design and high quality printing make it a rare first issue for a punk zine of the time.
