APR was the first national publication to give Christian Angst an audience. I stumbled across the magazine one afternoon while perusing a bookstore in Boulder, Colorado and immediately emotionally connected with it. Self-labled as a guide beyond the mainstream, editor Jason McQuinn quarterly – for the most part – reprinted what he deemed to be the best from the alternative press and zine world, often times with an admitted libertarian and anarchist bent. In my usual “what do I have to lose” attitude at the time I mailed him a collection of strips and the result was a twelve year relationship that gave the comic more exposure than I ever imagined possible. You can certainly see the evolution of the strip as the years went by, as my access to technology and clipart increased. APR eventually succumbed to the pressures of the internet and the growing costs associated with print media, but I will always value and appreciate the generous time and space Christian Angst was afforded in its pages.
