On the new issue: Moon Press Issue 12 explores the connection between humour and the moon - specifically, how humour may be used as a tool for disruption, provocation and agitation. Starting from the etymological roots of β€œlunacy” & the moon’s intrinsic silliness, the issue looks at the role of humour in times of political and economic crisis. From shitposting as soft branding to the mechanics of virality, online humour and IRL comedy are examined as potent means for communication and political solidarity.
