Start at the beginning.

So the other day I was talking to a friend who was vigorously working on this little book thing. When I asked him about it he said he was working on making a zine. I had only kinda heard about it before, but never really quite new what it was. But the stuff he was working on was awesome and then he showed me some other zines he had gotten and traded with other people. So, now I'm realizing that its a way bigger idea then i had ever thought.
 
So i guess my question…

Layouts and Call for Help

Hi everyone!

I am lucky enough to be spending a month researching zines and making one for an independent project. One of my objectives is to create an interesting and unique layout. I am planning to do it by hand, because doing it on the computer doesn't give me the same rush and feeling of satisfaction.

The reason I am posting this is I am looking for someone to talk to about laying out zines. Just emailing back and forth (Letters would take too long, even though I love…

Merit Badge: Revenge



The Revenge of Print


In early January I learned that Baltimore's Atomic Books and Quimby's Books in Chicago had sent out a sort of call-to-arms to anyone who has ever produced a self-published zine, mini-comic, or full-sized comic book. The stores were encouraging bookmakers to turn out at least… Continue

1 year

April is the one year anniversary for new zine reviews on the blogo sddzine.blogspot.com. It has been a really great experience that has allowed me to connect with a bunch of amazing artists, writers, and ornery opinionists, and to re-connect with some of my old friends. I started the blog with the simple idea of highlighting the world of zines a bit, as well as to create some kind of online archive. The response has been nothing but…
