Behind the Zines #7
Imported from Antiquated Future, a brilliant American zine distro based in Portland, Oregon.
Behind the Zines is a zine about zines. Think of it as a small-scale Broken Pencil or Xerography Debt, a biannual publication that puts a spotlight on what's going on in the zine community. In this issue: scene reports, zine fest travels, zine spreadsheets, zine reluctance, and zine reviews. It asks how personal is too personal, and includes an interview with Kara Comegys of the zine Clumsy, discussing zines, sexual assault, and using art to heal. It also has the results of a zine survey, so there's even zine pie charts, statistics, and graphs.
Contributors include: Billy McCall (Proof I Exist), Jess Hogan (Neither/Nor Distro), Jake McWilliams (Making Edible Playdough is Hegemonic), Kelly Shortandqueer (Shortandqueer zine), Keith Helt (Flotation Device), Anna Jo Beck (Biff Boff Bam Sock), Ed Tillman, Ed Chops (The Word Distro), Frederick Moe (Tin Can Telephone), Jessica Mills, Giz, and Kari Tervo (Shards Of Glass In Your Eye!).
