We Make Zines

a place for zinesters - writers and readers

Some of you may know I'm building a Mini-Comic and Fanzine Database. Essentially, it's a database for comic zines and zines about comics that includes cover scans, publication data, contributors and more. It's been a pet project of mine for several years but it's time to kick it into high gear and make it something readers, publishers and fans can really use.

The Database currently contains entries for 6,600 individual comic zines and related items (catalogs and flyers, for example). But that's only a drop in the bucket. I've got an astounding amount of cover scans and data to get through but I need time to do it. And that's where mini-comics and fanzine fans can really help.

Please check out the Patreon link for more info as well as some sample entries. The Database site is not currently open to the public but will be soon!

Hi Rick,

You may already know about this, but I just wanted to spread the word. Here is a link to xZineCorex project that attempts to make zine databases mesh with one another in the hopes that one day there will be but one big database that will encompass all printed material.
