We Make Zines

a place for zinesters - writers and readers

This month: we're having a holiday sale! For anyone interested in such a thing, there are some deals to be had. Things have been busy, so many things needed to be restocked and they are good and obviously loved by others. We also got an wonderfully diverse array of new things this month, my favorite being Truckface #14, dang! So good. Oh, and for the next few weeks, we're going to try to ship everything out next day so as to help with any gift giving that may occur. Now on with the newsletter!
