2011: Revenge of Print Update


RevengeOfPrint2011, originally uploaded by sugarfreak.

The Revenge of Print train keeps a-rollin'!

We have almost 150 folks signed on to make at least 1 zine in 2011. Just think about that. If everyone keeps their pledge, that's at least 150 new zines in 2011!!

We have over 450 members Join the Facebook group.

I just wanted to take a moment to point out a couple things. In the discussion area of the Facebook group, I've started topics for Distribution and for Reviews.

If you have a store, distro, library, etc - please take a moment to post your contact info. For those who are making zines - we encourage you to distro you zines.

If you review zines, have a review zine zine or a blog, etc. - there is a topic where you can post your contact info also. Again, folks are encouraged to send out review copies as well.

A healthy zine culture means we need access to and critical discussion of zines.

Here is just a small sampling of the folks participating: Attempted Not Known, Booty, Brainscan, Caboose, Cashiers du Cinemart, Cinema Sewer, Creatrix, Crimewave, Culture Slut, Damaged, Daybook, Divine Exploitation, The East Village Inky, Exploitation Retrospect, Fish With Legs, Found Magazine, Free Press Death Ship, The Future Generation, Hoax Zine, Jape, Kung Fu Grip!, Leeking Ink, Meniscus, Micro-Film, Moxie, Negative Capability, Paracinema, Razorcake, Rigor Mortis, Sassyfrass Circus, Secret Prison, Slither, Smile Hon You're In Baltimore, Syndicate Product, Tail Spins, Too Much Coffee Man, We'll Never Have Paris, Xerography Debt... and WAY too many more to mention here. (They're all listed in the Facebook group though).

This project is endorsed by Atomic Books, Quimby's Bookstore, Razorcake, Xerography Debt, Zine World, Grrrl Zines A-Go-Go, Las Vegas Zine Library, Nic-Fit Comics (distro)
