My new zine "Dangerous Truth (pt.I)" is now available, and #2 should be finished by the end of the month. Unfortunately, I do not have photos of it yet, but I can tell you about the content: 24 pages w/ inlay and bookmark, subjects including my experience with DIY gaming, Dungeons and Dragons,mental health issues, and writing culture. I'm really looking looking to trade, but will offer them for $1.50 cash if you want to buy them (by mail only). Send me a message or email me at…Continue

A few of us comic and zine making types have been meeting up recently to talk, share ideas and general plot world take over by the DIY press here in Bristol. We've also started a collaborative comic-zine, called Bearpit. The first issue was released earlier this year, and the second is under-way, slated for a summer release. You can read all about it here.
Most importantly, though, we're an open forum, so if…Continue

So I was at a store earlier because I needed a 500-pack of paper to draw on. I noticed that the regular paper was 5.99 and the 30% recycled paper was 7.99.
This first thing that popped in my head was that 'someone' was profiting on the fact that people might want to buy recycled paper. Shouldn't recycled paper be CHEAPER? I don't know all the manufacturing techniques but I just figure that it costs more to turn a tree into a piece of paper than it does to recycle old paper into a new…Continue
Can I call you my friend? Maybe we don't know each other very well, but I still consider you a pretty cool person, and you've always been nice to me. You probably wish that I would leave you alone when we're on the bus together and you have to study, but the thing is, you always put up with our forty-five minute conversations on your way to your partner's house. Sometimes you even show me pictures from your many overseas trips, and this is something I really appreciate. I've had something…Continue

There are all sorts of trite things I could say about not having seen you in forever, or the usual things people say when they miss somebody they used to hang out with almost everyday, but honestly, none of that would be appropriate when it comes to our relationship. Certain things remind me of you, and every once in a while, I do actually miss you, but honestly, I am relieved that you are over a thousand miles away. It's been about three years since the last time I've seen or heard from…Continue

When I first starting reading and making zines (A whole nine months ago) it was a super secret. I gave my mom a heads up so she wouldn't put throw out mail that was addressed to Inertia and shared the ones I made with a totally cool librarian but that was it. No in my life one except the totally cool librarian (And I guess her boyfriend) ever read my zines. I don't know why I felt such a need to keep it a secret.
But I did. When I would collect crap to use as backgrounds or…Continue
well,this blog,possibly one of the best blogs on wmz,has a new mission.after much speculation and thought,i've decided really that,after close examination of my self promotional,sick twisted and fucked up comics and zines,the time has come to take action against me.that is why i am proposing a boycott of my own zine.there are several reasons nobody should ever buy my zines.honestly not that many people buy them anyway.but thats not enough-no one,anywhere should ever buy any comics or zines i…Continue

Looking for mail art!
Send me some creative postcards! (I make my with thin cardboard from food boxes cut into the right size)
If you send me anything, I will send you something.
I'm always looking for things to include in my zine. Pictures, quotes, instructions, jokes, anything.
Don't be afraid of using profanity, adult content, drugs, alcohol, or fart…Continue
I guess I have always know of Zines existence, but wasn't ready for them yet. I would pick up some of the larger titles about music at a Newbury Comics when I was in that area, but beyond that, I was unaware of the complete awesomeness of the underground publications. By the time I was ready for Zines and their experience, I couldn't get my hands on them and didn't know where to start.
My love for mail and mail art sent me to Swap-bot.com. There I spent all of my money and…Continue

Dear Anonymous 2 is on its way and I'm once again looking for letters!
Lessons learned from DA1:
*250 words or less is good (for one page)
*500 words or less is good (for two pages)
So, basically, you're right in the 1 - 500 words range, but shorter is better. BUT, this blog is about expression, and I don't want to force anyone to clamp down on their passion just for me. I'm flexible. :)
As for content, these letters can be confessionals,…Continue

this issue is more sad/despairing than most of the zines i’ve done. i wrote about:
my time working at child protective services (trigger warning), trauma stewardship,…Continue
