Cometbus is a punk zine started in Berkeley, California in 1981 by Aaron Elliott. Writing under the pen name Aaron Cometbus, Elliott has self-published his usually handwritten zine ever since, despite a few breaks. The name "Cometbus" was coined by Gregg Turkington during the early days of the magazine when the name changed from issue to issue. Cometbus consisted of band interviews, personal diaries, artwork, and observations on the punk subculture in the San Francisco Bay Area and beyond.

Back issues are available from Microcosm, the nonprofit, collectively-run publisher and distributor of cool zines!
