We Make Zines

a place for zinesters - writers and readers

I know we're all going to do it, so I guess we could keep it neat and tidy by putting it all in one thread. So here goes, JUST post about your new issue in this thread, don't discuss or reply, that way new members can easily see what output we're all responsible for!

14 pages long, black and white printed on pink paper, Pretty Pussy! is a minicomic piece on the topic of pubic hair grooming and body image.
Iv been working on it steadily for the past few weeks, had the idea in my head for forever. I wanted to do something feminine and uplifting, and heres what Iv come up with. Tips on hair removal and how to keep your skin clear afterwards of ingrown hairs and rash. While it is of course focused on women, all the tips would work just as well for men who want to shave. :)

Its my first ever zine so Id really like to get it out there! I would love to do some trades if anyone is interested.

Iv also listed it on my ArtFire account for 2.50$

After a lot of effort - first of all in getting hold of the technology, and secondly in painstaking hours of typing, I am proud to present JOURNEYMAN 3 - THE ZX81 ISSUE!

Unlike my mainly-made-on-a-typewriter previous issues, this one was made entirely using a 1981-vintage Sinclair ZX81 computer, and printed using an Alphacom 32 thermal printer of similar age.

It's very difficult to type on a ZX81, and the computer is VERY limited in what it can do - this 16-page zine completely filled the 16K of memory I had available! It's all been made by setting up the pages on the screen and printing each screenful as it goes along. It's made out of a BASIC program over 400 lines long, that's stored using cassette tapes and takes about four minutes to load. :)

Anyway, in this issue, you have...

  • Music and TV reviews
  • Why I like using old technology
  • Some graphics and patterns using the ZX81's awesome 64x44 pixel resolution!
  • Camera of the Month - the Olympus XA2
Here it is in its 11cm wide glory:

Note: the first few copies will be printed in blue like this, but once that particular roll of thermal paper runs out, further copies will be printed in slightly more conventional black. :) Please let me know if you're desperate for a blue copy - once that roll has gone, they will all be black...

Available for £1.50 in the UK, £2.00 by airmail to everywhere else in the world. Order using the appropriate button below - please ensure you choose the right postage option.

Little Grrrl Lost & Found Issue No. 7 is now available for trade and purchase. This is a special edition zine that focuses on the HOT topic of bullying among teens. The zine contains information on what constitutes bullying, the various forms of bullying, detail regarding cyber bullying, statistics, resources, and a special section dedicated to teens (how to handle bullies and what to do if you witness another student being bullied). The zine also contains a list of warning sigs for parents: How to tell if your child is being bullied and How to tell if your child is a bully.

The topic of bullying is very close to my heart. My daughter who is 14 has encountered some bullies at school and there was a time last year when she feared going to school because of these bullies who threatened to beat her up every day. This is a topic that deserves attention. Education is key in reducing and ultimately stopping bullying. Please refer this zine to anyone you know who may have children or teens or to those who work with children on a regular basis.

Zine is availavle for trade.

If you would like to purchase a copy please vising my etsy shop (www.blambert1.etsy.com). Zine sell for $2.00 (U.S. currency).

I have a new zine! And it is basically the What's the Deal With You And Microcosm? blog post  plus a little more including a paragraph from Cindy Crabb clarifying a bit of her request.


get it?

I'm just going to say that this zine is not for everyone. 26 is my leave favorite number and I ended up writing about my least favorite topic that just will not go away!


In 2006 I wrote the zine Brainscan #21: Irreconcilable Differences. This zine was about my personal experience of realizing I was in an emotionally abusive relationship, finding the courage to move on and challenging other people to identify power and how they use in in all of their relationships. In Brainscan 21 I did not name name because I did no think it was useful, but in this zine I do. Several other people have approached me with issues they have had with the same person and I thought it might be helpful for people to hear a bit more of my story tying my personal experience with Joe to my business experience.

This zine is based on this blog post http://alexwrekk.wordpress.com/2010/07/29/so-whats-the-deal-with-yo.... People have kept asking me about it so I thought I would put it in zine format. The blog post is about my least favorite subject: my history with Microcsm Publishing, Joe Biel and his attempted and failed accountability processes plus input from a few other people. To lighten the load I also talk about some of the other stuff I have been involved with and things I'm looking forward to next year. 32 pages 1/4 sized and uncharacteristly text heavy. Back cover illustration by Steve Larder
