Marker, paper and a copy machine.

50 Watts

An extraordinary collection of book & zine illustrations. It’s the variety - black ink, woodcut, elaborate stipple from all over the world. Leisurely scan the imagery and soon enough you are transported.

SARDINE MAGOZINE

I will NEVER forget Charlie McAlister. Oh boy his zine showed the way to zine—returning fish sticks through the post with grateful letters enclosed, hobo-styled restaraunt reviews where you just felt sad for him. He sang about falling down the stairs and cheese sandwiches like a regular person and now he’s gone. I’ll never meet you; but I’ll think of you when I’m walking in the muddy creek behind my sister’s house. We haven’t lost his zines and songs, no how.

5¢ense

A webzine of nonsense, arcane notebooks, txt-style vernacular (trading ‘lols’ for ‘bedder-½’), beat-up cassettes by (mostly?) Derek White. It feels Irish to me, all the best things in life do. I’m new to this, but it’s been around since 2003! The new project for 2018 is to walk all of Rome.

kuš!

An international comics anthology—count on a wide variety of surprising styles. Even more in the zine vein is their buddy Popper.
