Zines

Hedwig Lives: The Complete Collection of Fan Theories that Proves Harry Potter's Owl Still Lives is the best Harry Potter conspiracy theory zine around. Meticulous analysis of the source texts by Paul DeGeorge of long-running Harry Potter fan band (and wizard-rock inventors), Harry and the Potters.

Comes with an iron-on patch! (For true believers.)

Illustrations throughout by Cameron Lamontagne...[ continued ]

Last copy! In The Hid Are Out, Noah D. writes about growing up in Dayton, Ohio in the '90s and discovering fellow Dayton natives The Breeders. Told through short personal stories, the zine is a heartfelt tribute to the band and an example of how music can change the course of a person's life.

In How Are You?, Moe Bowstern reviews cancer. What comes out of these "reviews" is a tale of being changed—feeling different on a fundamental level and not being able to explain it to anyone. The zine is real, sad, hilarious, and wise as all hell. 

"One of the more exciting experiences we can have as human beings is almost dying," Moe writes. "Brushes with death don't need to be all that close to have a tremendous impact on our psyches, reminding us the close line we walk between the worlds at all times...[ continued ]

Ten zinesters talk about an album they love. From The Wipers to The Breeders, Elton John to Ol' Dirty Bastard. With great pieces from Billy McCall (Last Night at the Casino), Katie Haegele (The La-La Theory), and Ed Tillman (Manfiesto). My personal favorite: a delve into five forgotten '90s soundtracks.

I F#cking Love This Album is a quick, fun, and affordable read that has a charming made-on-a-word-processing-program-in-1994 aesthetic...[ continued ]

The issue that started off this amazing, hilarious, zine series. Before the well-played themes of later issues began, they traversed the cinematic spectrum of Road House to Showgirls, Sleepwalkers to The Pick-Up Artist, all in one issue. Well-written and able to appeal to just about everybody.

52 pages, half-letter size.

A fantastic new issue of I Love Bad Movies, the movie review zine that is as hilarious as it is well-written and insightful. This issue’s theme: “Early and Late Roles” or, “Before and After They Were Famous.” It’s kind of brilliant.

The highlight: a wonderful interview with Alex Winter (AKA: Bill S. Preston, Esq., of Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure!) about his role in Death Wish 3 and Charles Bronson's love of bananas...[ continued ]

From Aj Michel of the great Syndicate Product zine, I've Worn All the Shirts in the Drawer is a daily diary of quarantine by way of t-shirts. Photos of shirts accompanied by their stories, and a day-by-day account of watching the world crumble. Bleak fun, fandom, and the mundane.

"As the days piled up, I wrote less about the shirts and more about pushing through the days," Aj writes, "what worried, disgusted, and frightened me...[ continued ]
