I just received the new issue (#6) of Jason Rodger´s zine review zine "Media Junky" & listen to this kick ass review of my humble lil´ zine "Going Postal!":
"A fabulous work. This zine is devoted to mail art & zines, as social phenomena. This looks at the personal & political relevance of alternative communications. There is no lack of theory, nor the relevance of personal experiences. The material maintains a critical stance, not only covering positive aspects. Articles on the history of zines (beginning much earlier than the standard article on the subject), Arthur Moyse (an obscure yet prolific artist), the subversive potential of the mail art form, and zinecraft as a method of taking control of identity construction. Art is provided by the excellent John Mountain throughout. This comes highly recommended."
Well, Jason, thank you very much. That´s probably the best review I´ve ever received. If anybody is interested, I still have roughly 50 copies of "Going Postal!" #1 left (out of 250). If anybody is looking for a new zine review zine, here´s Jason´s contact info:
