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!

A new issue of my mental health zine functionally ill is out and available for trade.  Please contact me here or at robotmad (gmail) to arrange trades. Thanks very much.

 

Issue ten is about using the word crazy, what mad love means to me, how my crazy manifests, and how I feel about my best friend Arrow's self-harm.

So the big secret is that I'm releasing Candy or Medicine Volumes 14 & 15 simultaneously. The reason? 1. I've never done it before. 2. This is the first time that I've had all of the material for two issues at one time (thanks to all the contributors for being very punctual!).

Clothed
 
So for $2 (plus shipping, of course), you will receive both issues, held together by a handy dandy, uhh... jacket? I'm not really sure what to call it. Note: if you are a subscriber (hi, all three of you!), this obviously counts as two issues. You can order at my blog or on Etsy.

The new issue of DrunkenWerewolf is out! It features reasons to love/hate Glee and interviews with Slow Club, She Makes War (a zinester herself!), Phil the Tremolo King (an incredibly hardworking/nomadic musician currently based in New Orleans) and Beth Jeans Houghton (who's also an amazing visual artist).

Margaret Kilgallen (1967-2001) was a painter and a graffiti artist, a member of the Mission School art movement in San Francisco in the late 1990s, along with her husband, painter Barry McGee. Kilgallen was prolific in her short career, which ended with her death in June 2001. This zine is about my search for more information and insight on Margaret and her work, and tells the story of my own artistic journey as well as thoughts on art in general.

 

There is more about the project here: http://miss-sequential.blogspot.com/2011/09/meta.html

 

The cover was block-printed from a block I carved by hand and printed on paper bag card stock.

The zine is quarter-sized (4.25 inches x 5.5 inches), and is 24 pages long (not including the cover).

 

It can be ordered through my shop on Etsy. If you need to order some other way, please email me at thimblewinder [at] gmail dot com and we'll work something out.

Printaissance #4 : The Fall of the American Empire is new available!

 

The fourth issue is a socio-political lit zine which uses historical accounts, modern day headlines, poetry, angry hippie insights and more to compile this ranty look at the parallels in the fall of Rome and the looming fall of the 'American' Empire. It is titled The Fall of the American Empire as a foreshadowing, and foreboding, hint at this possible future that it seems the United States is barreling towards. This issue is certainly an opinionated romp through the darker side of our country and is not for the faint of heart.


Issue 4 (41 half page pages / available for trade)

Drastic Frivol 1) Travel is 46 pages of stories and ruminations on diverse travel experiences and difficult return. There's also an essay on the German notion of Fernweh. The interior art was mainly clipped from 19th century geography books. 

It is available for USD $2 or €1.50 plus postage and can be sent either from the US or Germany. Contact me at erik@spybeam.org if you'd like a copy.

Issue 4 (41 half page pages / available for trade)

These are the two zines I created this year.They were each released already but have been repackaged and reprinted.

Brainscan #27
A tiny zine that reads like a snapshot. 1/12 legal sized (3"x4") 28 page mini zine, A single story wrapped in photocopier art. This zine takes place in an elevator between a 9th floor divorce lawyer and the ground and a bike ride home. It explores disappointments and the human inability to consider endings.

"We rode 9 stories down in silence like shedding 9,000 stories of our own"

Brainscan #28
1/6th legal (4.25" square) 28 pages with color covers and color fold outs. This is my 24 hour zine for 2011. It was created in 24 hours at the Independent Publishing Resource Center. The theme was to answer the question "what do you do?" I explored the fact that most people want to know how you make money. I have a sort of strange income to some people so this will answer the question. I also talk about the cats that live in my house and how I have learned to love cats, even though I always thought I was a dog person. I also answer the question "how long have you and Paul been together?" in a fold out time line that includes color photos of us from years past.

This was originally sent to the people who sponsored me in the 24 hour zine challenge. also made 50 copies to trade at the Portland Zine Symposium. After the sleep deprivation of creating a 24 hour zine I wasn't sure if wanted it to be an issue of Brainscan. I decided to go for it and after a bit of tweaking and reformatting I'm re-releasing it as Brainscan 28.

Syndicate Product 20 / The Meta-Comics Issue
44pg / Digest / $4 US

In this Meta-Comics issue, contributors write and draw about what goes into making their comics, why they read comics, creating comics as a form of therapy, trying to adapt favorite novels into comics, favorite creators and long lost characters and imprints, memories of first comic books and dusty comic book stores, some favorite writers and artists, comics used as comfort during childhood (and adulthood), and finally reading those “racy” comics that they peeped at as a teen but never actually purchased. There are a few first-time Syndicate Product contributors in this issue: Alisa Harris, William Brian MacLean, and Dan Shoemaker. You’ll recognize many regulars as well: JB Winter, Delaine Derry Green, Andrew Wales, Andrew Coltrin, Mike Faloon, Davida Gypsy Breier, Jen McCleary, Ken Bausert, Sean Stewart, Eric Lyden, Steve Bojanowksi, and Juleigh Howard-Hobson.
