There were a couple one-panel cartoons in the Seth Friedman Factsheet 5's called "Flicker Snickers". They were sort of parodies of old 60's/70's-era newspaper cartoons, but brutally grim. I've been thinking of appropriating them in a zine, but I thought (climate of opinion being what it is these days) that maybe I should ask the creator if he minded. I've looked on Google and found a lot of "flicker snicker" references, but none seem to be to the cartoons or its creator I'm looking for. …Continue

Get Fit For the Pit is a zine dedicated to fitness and nutrition for folks in the punk/activist/etc scene. I have noticed that our subculture puts a lot of emphasis on touring, traveling, going to shows, running on little sleep, etc. These things do not always add up to a healthy lifestyle, especially as some of us are getting older.
I wanted to put a zine out about taking back our fitness and health.
Issue #2 is going to be all about nutrition. Some ideas…Continue

For the longest time I struggled to make a perzine that really captured the biggest aspects of my own life. I'd g through writing story after story but would never be satisfied with what I had. The problem was that I felt like I had no interconnecting theme or layout. I wanted more than a zine that talked about the downs and the ups and the immediacy in them. There was always something missing.
However, I now believe I've got it. I've been writing like a fiend, getting closer…Continue

Has anyone done a zine related to pet peeves?
Is anyone interested in sharing their pet peeves in a zine?
How do you deal with your pet peeves? Why do certain things set you off?
Some of my pet peeves are:
people who walk slow in front of me...
people who drive with their blinker on when they are not turning...
bread crumbs on the counter...
crying children in restaraunts and movie…Continue

So after a lot of faffing about, I got Splinters #1 ready. I have a few copies printed (#1 - #10) so those will be numbered and given to whoever wants them, and if there's more demand then I'll be printing more. I'm pretty pleased with the cover art especially (at the bottom of the page)
It's a personal 'zine full of my ramblings and recollections about various things in my life, and friends I know or have known. The articles are;

“Johnny America,” a little 'zine of fiction and humor published by the Moon Rabbit Drinking Club & Benevolence Society, is seeking submissions for our next, ninth issue. We’re particularly interested in items that work within the very loose theme of “Kansas.”
We’d like to emphasize the looseness of the theme. A pithy review of Greensburg’s “world’s deepest hand-dug well” would certainly qualify, as would using Kansas as a barely-present backdrop for…Continue

SO GUYS I HAVE THIS IDEA.
Basically, it involves the following:
1. anyone who wants to e-mails me a title of a list (that they come up with). (clara.lipfertATdresden.us)
2. I write all the titles everyone has come up with on pieces of paper and draw them out randomly, assigning each list title to one of the people who has contributed one. (you give a title, you get a title.)
3. you write out your assigned list on a 4.25" by 5.5" (that's a quarter of a regular…Continue
