Well, the disto is up and running full speed ahead, and while we continue to grow our stock of zines (and hopefully soon some buttons and patches!), we thought we’d take a brief moment to highlight some of the titles new in stock! We’re still actively stocking the shelves, and are really excited for zines that are coming our way, and just wanted to remind you that if you’re interested in us potentially carrying your zine, just shoot us an email, we’d love to chat and see if it’s a good fit!
“Jane was a clandestine abortion counseling service which effectively provided safe, humane services to thousands of women prior to the legalization of abortion in 1973. Jane is an inspiration a beautiful example of the battles that can be won without begging, of women taking their lives into their own hands and taking responsibility for their actions.”
Cheer the Eff Up
Reading Cheer The Eff Up is like getting to know a warm and inviting friend, and makes you just want to send Jonas a letter and become penpals. (Which, PS, is totally plausible). If you haven’t read Cheer the Eff Up yet, we suggest you start at the beginning.
Issue #1: What part of Cheer The Eff Up is fiction? What isn’t? In the end, it doesn’t even seem to matter. Issue #1 starts with a letter to an unborn daughter and takes us traveling through Jonas’ life. Going to college, making friends, losing friends; supporting friends. Most of the zine is about what happened to all of Jonas’ friends after college, and stories about family, peppered with little wisdoms for aforementioned unborn daughter, including “cheer the eff up.” There is a also bittersweet story that ends with a passive aggressive message on a cake. And that’s amaze-balls.
Deafula is a rad zine about a girl and her deafness
