From ZAPP:

This Saturday, January 30, 6-9 p.m., Fantagraphics Books presents the release party for "NEWAVE! Underground Mini Comix of the 1980s," a new book compiling self-published mini-comics of the '70s and '80s, at their store in Georgetown.

For every copy of "NEWAVE!" sold at the party, Michael Dowers, the book's editor, will donate $3 to ZAPP.

The "NEWAVE!" release party features original artwork from Jaimie Alder, Jim Blanchard, Wayne Gibson, David Lasky, Wayno, Steve Willis, Dennis Worden and XNO. Dowers, mini-comics creator and former editor of Starhead Comix and Fantagraphics Books, will be creating and distributing a mini-comic on site. Plus, an allstar comics jam with music by hot Seattle indie rockers Iji.

For more info, visit the Fantagraphics Web site. http://www.fantagraphics.com/index.php?option=com_content&task=...

“There is going to be some type of comics jam going on and ZAPP people would be welcome to participate ...” – Michael Dowers

That is sad. I didn't know.

I know this is kind of ridiculous but I made a ZAPP profile to have linked to our work email...thanks though for setting the group up David!

I have some very sad news to share: One of the original co-founders of ZAPP (originally 'ZAP'), Gary Greaves, has passed away. I got a chance to meet and talk with him for a few minutes at ZAPP's open house last fall. I found him encouraging and inspiring, and could see where ZAP got some of its powerful primordial spark. There will be a memorial for Gary on Friday (today):

Friday, February 20 at 10:00 a.m.
Central Lutheran Church, 1710 11th Avenue, on Seattle’s Capitol Hill
(This, I believe, is the church next to the Richard Hugo House.)

More info on the Hugo House site:

Many of you know this already, but for those of you who don't, there will be a Zine Librarians UnConference at ZAPP in mid-March. Here's the link for the press release...
