We Make Zines

a place for zinesters - writers and readers

What are some of the best zines you've ever read; the favourite ones that you like to read over and over?

Mine would have to be Alex Wrekk's Brainscan. I usually have one stashed in my bag to reread in waiting rooms, on the subway, walking, etc. Her layout style is so distinct, and she's got a great balance of visuals vs. text.

I tried to get one of these posts going last week and received very few responses. Perhaps people just don't want to own up to their influences!!

Anyway, I've read and reviewed about 150 zines in the last six months and here are some that really stand out (and, to the best of my knowledge, are still being published):

Avow
Degrassi Digest
Eaves of Ass
Fuzzy Lunch Box
Hot Milk
Low Hug/ Syndicate Product

My all time favorite is probably Murder Can Be Fun, which has, sadly, gone the way of the dodo bird. I do re-read other zines from time to time, but MCBF is almost like a reference library!!

Anyway, I can't vouch for my own tastes, but I truly enjoyed the aforementioned zines. I certainly hope you can search out some pleasing reading material among them.
Thanks for the suggestions!

I love many many zines... but one that I really LOVE reading because i get so involved and lost in the stories is Sad & Beautiful World.
my two favorite zines are osa's shotgun seamstress and this other one called fallopian falafel. LOVE THEM.
