The answer to, and winner (if any) for,
our last contest question of:
Name the first pulp magazine.
or first all fiction magazine (1896).
Argosy! It started out as an adventure magazine for boys and girls in 1882. Then shifted from a kids magazine to one for adults, and in 1896 it became the first all fiction magazine printed on pulp paper.
We had no correct answers
It seems y'all were lost in the jungle on this one!

Here are arm wrestling experiments that mutated into singing and dancing adventures from the Cartoonist Conspiracy San Francisco jams as well as the Rock Paper Scissors Zine Workshops. The activity of making comics is a loner's world, and collaborations don't occur so often. It's a joy to be able to jam with other artists when the opportunity arises much the same way musicians jam.
I took an excellent and highly recommended animation… Continue

I spent most of my freetime for the past month scanning old zines of mine and posting the pics on my blog. sddzine.blogspot.com
its a personal history of my experience writing and reading zines. It was fun digging into my old boxes of mail, re-reading zines I hadn't read in 10 years (time goes by so goddamn fast) and thinking about how easy it is to loose touch with people. Anyway, if your interested check it out.

Last night was the first meeting of the collective! A brand new group of artist coagulated together into an inky wordy blobby mess and shared their art ideas, skills and experience with each other. Check out the pics, I taught our first workshop [non toxic prontoplate printmaking] and we all created works for the zine!…

I was thinking today that I should really have a set theme to keep me focussed on the zine as i have so many other things going on right now in the real world.
So........The theme will be about following your dreams as this last year I've just returned to art college and it's been a struggle to juggle everything (ooo stuggle to juggle.....may use that phrase!) Also I would be good for anyone that is stuck in a mundane job like I am and wants to do something different. So I guess… Continue

I know that I've made 121 because I photocopied them all again for the exhibition "Avoiding Myth and Message: Australian Artists and the Literary World", which is currently on at the MCA, Sydney.
If you do go along, do write me a postcard - there is a shiny red postbox and a stack of blank cards for this purpose. Keep the numbers of messages from primary school kids, and teenagers quoting the Mighty Boosh down, write to me!
The exhibition's on til the 12th of July.

...are (finally) being added. And more on their way.
I've been a little confused on how to go about shipping charges and have been doing this $2 flat rate (in the U.S.) that allows people to buy as much as they want and it will just be two bucks of shipping, which seemed great for people who wanted two records, a cd, and a zine, but kinda sucked when someone just wanted one zine. So, now there's no shipping on zines and the price just kind of includes shipping. It's hard to keep the super… Continue

I'm pretty ashamed of my lack of writing for the past months. Not so much that I haven't been writing, but everything is just listed out "what i did today" "to do" "This pissed me off...blah blah blah." Trivial stuff. Journal things. One sentence proclamations.
Anyway, a few nights ago I got on the computer and typed out a good concrete nine/ten paragraphs of abstract writing. I finished reading "Please Don't Kill the Freshmen" by Zoe Troppe for the second time. I'm always amazed by… Continue

The media watchdog, FAIR.org (Fairness and Accuracy in Reporting) has the perfect sum up of my media concerns. It encapsulates everything I've been trying to say in a couple of paragraphs. I wanted to reprint it for you and I encourage you to check out their site for more. The media isn't tough on itself, but fair is tough on the media.

It is finished. I spent the entire weekend putting it together. Damn I feel like I accomplished something for a change. I'm already starting another issue... the writing part anyway. And I'm working on an 8 page mini that will be nothing but doodling. I may send it along with other stuff as an extra.

On April 25 my daughters and I attended Kids’ Comic Con 2009
at Bronx Community College. We were invited by Mike Weiss, whose daughter Jessica is co-producer of PB&J Comics and a fixture at East Coast zine fests.
This was a really interesting event. For one thing, I haunt some key NYC comic stores regularly, and never heard a thing about this (it was the third annual con). I’m not sure how it was built, but the turnout… Continue

On Friday, April 24, I received a letter of rejection from the Texas Department of "Corrections" for Absent Cause
#2. Copies of the zine had been requested by four prisoners on death row in Huntsville.
The reason given is "Publication contains sexually explicit images" on pages 45 and 49. These are the painting "Tofu's Kiss" by Toni Lynn Crane and the photograph "It's What's Inside" by Heidi Calvert, featuring model Sash Suicide. Both are provocative explorations of women's… Continue
