Regeneration 32 pages, half size $2 US, $3 outside US, trades accepted Ashlee Swanson 8150 W 30 ½ St. #306 St. Louis Park, MN 55426 email@example.com
For those of us who trembled at the thought that there was no replacement generation of zine-creators, think again. Ashlee Swanson's excellent zine on the confusing, twentysomething experience is a fine representation of the next generation of zinesters.

We at the Ms Valerie Park Distro are headed to Boulder, Co in the morning to attend this weekend's Utne Reader awards ceremony because our very own Ariel Birks got nominated for Zine of the Year for Jesus Christ Superzine! Kinda weird, we're totally going to be the only zinesters at the thing, but how often do you get invited such a thing? For us, not very often. We'll keep y'all posted on the… Continue
