Right now team Save WMZ has decided to go the WordPress route. Several of us are comfortable with that platform. Our big decision is whether to go Bulletin Board or Social Network. @Quasifesto had a survey up for that. If you want to help save WMZ, he's the person to message. He's the project manager. 

Presently I'll be hosting the site on my server. We have a wordpress installation setup and we're waiting for a decision regarding which direction to go before we start implementation.

Hey Ed! I just received the 5c news and Manifesto - THANKS!  I love the attention to detail.  Esp. the cigar band around the 5c news...nicely done.  Thanks for the kudos on the "Times mark can talk about feelings comic too". 

mark's demise #2 is in the works.  I look forward to trading next editions in the future.

Thanks again!

I mailed your zine package today as well Ed.  Thanks!  Also, if you're interested, I posted a bunch of pictures from yesterday's Cleveland Cavaliers parade on my website www.marksdemise.com (was going to make a photo zine, but I couldn't wait to share ha)

Your zines showed up today. I enjoyed them. Thanks

I got your zines today also!  I am very impressed by your design work.  I have seen a number of zines lately that are pretty crude.  I especially like the little cigar band wrapper on the 8 pager.  I want combine my two mini zines by printing back to back like you did with the skyscape.

Hey Ed

I'm in Seattle.  I have a couple of quick and dirty 8pagers. Working on a couple more polished projects...

OK, Ed.  Thanks for the info.  Will get back in touch with you, hopefully sometime next month.  Take care and thanks for expressing interest in trading.

Google+ Zine Community

Posted on May 11, 2016 at 5:38pm 5 Comments

Hello Zinesters,

Some time ago, I started a Google+ Zine Community, mostly because there wasn't one already.

So far, crickets. I think we have 3 members and no one (including myself) as posted a thing. I though it would be a good place to post a photo of my zines with a link to where they could be purchased.

I know that Google+ is a big stinker. But I figure, it cannot hurt. If…


Handwriting Font

Posted on May 4, 2016 at 11:30am 1 Comment

I ran across zinester, GreogeRgR who used to make fonts out of samples of folks' handwriting.

After reading his profile, I started looking for someone who still did that type of service. I stumbled upon a site that will translate my handwriting into a font. The process is straight forward; you downloaded their template, used a black in…

I am jealous of zinesters who can put out zines on a regular basis. I publish Manifesto – a compzine -- but it takes me more than a year to put an issue together. Then I look at zinesters on here like Fishspit and Ken (of the Ken Chronicles) and I wonder, “dang, how do they do it?” I could never get that many issues out or that often.

For years, I have kept a journal where I write or draw anything that interests me (more…


Making an 8-Page Mini Photo Zine

Posted on January 14, 2016 at 9:30pm 2 Comments

I got the idea to make one of these zines from We Make Zine’s own Sophie Sherwood. I had known about the 8-page mini zine format for a while, but like most folks, I thought they worked best if you drew directly to the paper master and xeroxed from there.They are fast, easy and cheap. Just the thing if you want to make a zine that is political or topical that needs a quick turn around.

I had never considered…
