We Make Zines

a place for zinesters - writers and readers

I'm pretty sure there might be a thread similar to this one somewhere... but since I've been absent in the whole "zine scene" for a while, i just want to see what or who everyone is reading now...

you can mention genres or even be specific and mention titles or zinesters that you love to read
:)

thanks everyone

the d.i.y. events calendar one was exactly how it sounds: how to make a d.i.y. events calendar for your town, how to solicit events from people, distributing the calendar, how it's good for bringing a community together, etc.

im really interested in this one... drop me a line when it comes out? i think its something id really need soon. stupid events planning....lol
I liked the stories in it, about the comics, but not really the comics inside.
however the writings are good !

Yeah, I was excited to see that BURN COLLECTOR 14 was over 150 pages, but then seeing how many of them were comics.... meh. Al Burian is definitely a better writer than a cartoonist. In fact I think if his writing wasn't so good I'd like the comics more because I wouldn't be thinking about how much more I enjoy his writing.
I recently read this pretty great zine by Geoff Slagheap called Resistance of Dreams, but it doesn't seem to have a date or issue number, which is really annoying. I got it from Free Society Distro at the last Canzine, it's half-legal type-written text-heavy stories about travel, train-hopping, memories, night-time, wearing dresses, protests, etc. Pretty wonderful punk rock perzine from the US, I kind of loved it.
Would you like to trade for my zine that teaches you how to draft a custom skirt pattern and then sew it the proper way?

why do you usually avoid perzines and poetry zines? i've always thought most people were interested in perzines...

I find most perzines kinda boring. I primarily read zines that teach me something--a craft zine like Craft Leftovers, or a guide to being more creative, or a DIY health and cleaning guide like Make Your Place.

Of course, these zines have personal aspects to them, which I appreciate, but they're not just a list of "here's what I did today," or "here's my feelings about [whatever]," which I'm not super interested in. I've read a lot of really lame perzines--only the well written ones with unique things to say will keep my interest.
I've just finished reading Cultor Sore #15, which I found tucked between some random books on my bookshelf as I was packing things into boxes ready for moving house
DreamWhip #12
Give Me a Dollar (by Robnoxious)
Brève d'Orgone (a comic-zine from Nice, FR)
No Quarter #5 (radical history zine from Calgary, AB)

these were the last one.
I'm reading a comic zine called Potential Mode (which has some amazing art!) and a perzine called Black Carrot. Both are excellent!
Reading the new Ax Wound and loving it!
Reading some comic zines: the new Clutch, Ten Thousand Things to Do and one called Black Tea, I think.
oh YAY! I am so glad your diggin it!!! <3
