This might seem kind of random, but do you think it is better to have a zine that starts with the letter "A"? I mean, when I'm reading reviews, I don't usually read them all. Just the first few and the last few. Am I weird this way, or is this true?
i gotta agree it's a kind of silly concern. worry about making a bomb ass zine instead of whether or not people will read the review based on its alphabetical listing. even if the zine starts with "aa" it could still be not so good and get a poor review and then it wouldn't really matter that it was at the top of the list, now would it? ;)
(and yes i understand you weren't really considering doing that. it's an interesting thought, that's for sure. i've never really worried about reviews though i never really submit mine anywhere FOR review in the first place. i think ISO 1600 is a good name, so you should stick with it!)
I think of all the possible options for naming your zine, which letter of the alphabet it starts with is probably a very minor concern. If it happens that it starts with an A, you might find yourself earlier on in review listings, but even that can't be relied upon.
