We Make Zines

a place for zinesters - writers and readers

I live in Vancouver BC and I'm new-ish to the zine game. I am here because my hermit impulse is to photocopy a dozen of whatever I got going and then retreat back to the darkness, fondling my toner-smelly pages and giggling with satisfaction while eating a victory dinner of peanut butter toast and getting crumbs all over everything.

 

But it occurs to me that zines are best shared, not used as coasters, toast-holders, or spider-whackers.

 

So it would be good to touch base with fellow comic zinesters, just to have that nice community sense of what-what.

 

On the zine front, so far I have two comic volumes out, "Economy Cookies" and "Don't Feel So Hot." Both contain miscellaneous autobiographical tales of miscellaney.

 

 

Economy Cookies - Comic Tales (Autumn 2010)

 

A hodge-podge of from-true-life tales.

 

Including:

  • life in a decaying fishing village
  • a mouldy convenience store that sells only mix, lotto, and weird porn
  • having a farewell lunch in a half-abandoned mall
  • eating off-brand cookies until the point of nausea - and beyond!

plus more! The pain!

 

 

27 pages, comic, b&w $3 (including postage)

 

 

Don't Feel So Hot - Comic Tales (Spring 2011)

 

More personal stories zipping back and forth in time between a dismal youth and half-arsed adulthood!

Including:

an abandoned cat ("Mew"), a disastrous church carnival ("Mormon Hot Dogs"), drinking Bacardi at the cemetery to pass the time ("Tombstone Technology") and me and my reclusive gran go out for lunch ("Fish n Chips Shack") but I'm filled with doom the whole time. Also, I punched my dad in the balls ("I Punched My Dad in the Balls.")
