Razorcake/Gorsky Press, Inc. and Skylight Books are teaming up to together to celebrate California Bookstore Day with an “Ask a Zinester” booth at Skylight on Saturday, May 3, from noon to 10 pm. Stop by to meet some new zinesters, ask questions about everything from binding to copy-scamming, and get answers from wizened old zine makers. It’s gonna be FUN!
Hooray! Awesome mail day, I received this amazing zine from @briannedonut Thanks again for trading with me!
See what can be done with a quarter-sized format everyone? Selections from the library…
I am hard at work on a comic/zine exploring the subject of La Llorona (my favorite ghost story). It is getting weird. Due out by mid June! It’s called “Brujaja” ✾꒡ .̮ ꒡✾

Fair is fair. Do any of us - the writers, the zinesters, the get up in the middle of the night and write sentences on scraps of paper people - owe anything less? Writing zines is like giving blood for practice. No real reason. Like sleeping on the floor when you have a bed, or riding your bike in a blizzard for money. No good reason at all to risk so much pain and stupidity. Except to see what it feels like. And because writing’s like blood in that once it’s out you can’t put it back in. A puddle of bad spirits and liquid iron on the paper, and you give it away at shows.
Zine ends. Year ends. You wake up in a different city and you say the same things, but for real this time. — Ammi Emergency, from Emergency zine #5 (via rustbeltjessie)

New Issue of Guacamole available at EXTERMINATOR CITY this weekend in Seattle.
Seattle Weekly says:
"For the first time since the ’90s, Seattle is in the midst of an underground-comics renaissance. This explosion of new work comes in part thanks to the unifying power of the Short Run Festival and the monthly Dune Comics night at Café Racer. These two events aren’t necessarily breeding new comic artists; rather, they’re bringing disparate, secluded artists together in one place. All sorts of wonderful scribblers have been coming out of the woodwork and dazzling folks with their heretofore unknown talents, and we couldn’t be more excited. The newest alt-comix gathering is the inaugural Exterminator City, where 16 artists will show and sell their work all in one place. Members of The Intruder, the Ballard Sketch Team, Seattle Indie Comic and Game Artists, and participants in the Dune Comics night are among those who’ll be hawking their doodly wares. Half of the tables are reserved for women, so ladies need not worry that this will turn into a Comicon-style sausage fest. Push/Pull Studio Gallery (Greenwood Collective), 8537 Greenwood Ave. N., facebook.com/ExterminatorCity. Free. Noon–6 p.m."
