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 split zine with Brainscan #29 and no More Coffee #4

Brainscan #29 - Ben Spies (no more coffee zine) threw out the challenge of fiction to my land of perzines and this is the grim result. These three short stories are my stab at fiction wrapped in the usual high contrast cut and paste layout you would expect in and issue of Brainscan. One story is about leaving a hometown for greener pastures only to make a stop half way there to visit an old friend and includes thoughts and reflections about the past. The second story is about a weird housemate and his strange perception of the world through Woody Allen tinted glasses and odd notions about art. The third story is about weighing the value of our short lives against the rock wall embankment of a cemetery. I admit that the voice is similar to mine and the subject matter doesn't stray too far from what you would expect to find in an issue of Brainscan, but it was a really fun experiment and I'm glad that Ben talked me into doing this split.

No More Coffee is a zine of fiction for people who stay up too late. Stories like these are how I get the black bile out of my system, so to speak. Alex and I agreed to do a fiction split not knowing how morose it would end up, but we're on similar wavelengths, I guess. I'm still writing fiction because I love it and because I'm too scared to write about my own life, but even if these stories never happened, the people in them did. "Photographs of the Dead" is about what the residents of a suburban apartment complex doesn't know about their neighbors. "Exit 121" is about an impetuous woman living at a truck stop. The untitled story is about Sunday breakfast at a diner.

Pieces 6.5 & My Aim is True 5
Perzine 1/4 size : 82 pages
This is a split with my friend Carrie and while we tell two very different stories about body issues, there are many underlying threads that are the same. Pieces covers a long-waged battle against acne. My Aim is True covers a struggle with weight. Both are about the need for self-acceptance, self-love, and the people who helped get us there.


Available for $2 or trade.

Not exactly a NEW issue,  but I recently discovered this copy of a zine I did in 1985! Yes,  I am REALLY OLD!  And still making zines. I scanned it and posted it at https://www.scribd.com/doc/87458413/Bizarre-World  if you want to check it out...

i'm too tired to do a fancy post about recinerated #3 (new job! started today! exciting two hours of daily commuting!!), so i'm linking all the pertinent details, photos, etc. here, ok?

Our first issue of the zine is complete. Get it for free or trade. Just send us a message.

or email vacantmindszine@gmail.com

Vacant Minds is a mix of text, doodles, ramblings and art.

It's 16 pages, black and white, A5 size.

Hey! I finally got around to putting List 15 and Everydaypants #2 on-line for sale. I mean, right here.

List 15 is $4.
This issue is about moving to a new city to try to move on from a past relationship and to try to find a place that feels like home. It's about new figuring myself out, saying goodbye to the past, and opening new chapters. Some list samples are: big plans, things i miss/don't miss about chicago, being a confident introvert, adventures in dating, all the things that have happened since list 14, traits i admire in other people, how i ended up in a relationship, the things i think are most important, places i've been and what i remember about them, and many more!

(see sample pages here)

Everydaypants #2 is $3. 
I drew all of these comics throughout the year 2011, for various things, and wanted to see them all in one place and in print! This includes a selection of pages from a 115 page, long-term comic series I've been working on about my first year in Philadelphia (to be printed at the end of 2012). 
Everydaypants #2 is filled with short comics about music, diy, nannying, and moving to a new city. 
This is 24 pages, black and white, and saddle stitched!

(see sample pages here)

If you wanna order one, you can paypal monies to everydaypants@gmail.com or send me an email (everydaypants@gmail.com) if you want to order through the mail, and I'll give you my address. 

It's also for sale on my etsy, but if you wanna just buy through me directly it saves me dumb etsy fees and I won't charge for shipping. How about that?

If you prefer etsy, however, my etsy shop is at http://everydaypants.etsy.com

Got my package today (thanks!) Taking it with me on vacation for a few weeks.
