Zine Me Up

Hey Internet, does anyone know of a place where I can just send some money and get back a mixed selection of zines and/or minicomics? I’m interested in sampling some of each but starting from scratch title by title seems like an exhausting proposition.

SE Zine Fest

This Saturday October 20th in Charleston SC will be the first Southeast Zine Fest at the Redux Contemporary Art Center . It is free to attend, and sounds like a lot of fun. Because zinesters are not morning people, the event starts at noon.

I would love to go but don’t think I’ll be able to. The goal is for this to be an annual event, which I hope is the case as I would like to attend next year. If you live in Charleston or driving distance and want to help bootstrap the zine community in this region, please consider going and showing your support. Pick up some stuff and hang out and generally participate. Do it for me, do it for the kids!
