L.A. Zine History: Kill Zinesters Tour ’96

Golden Apple Comics (which had its own Zine Fest back then) and Amok Books were stops on this cross-country tour back in the summer of 1996.

From the zinewiki page:

“The plan was simple, rent a Winnebago and tour the States hyping zines, with assistance from local zinesters in each city to organize, host and promote an event… most of the prominent zine publishers in each city of the tour helped organize their leg of the event and hundreds, if not thousands, of zines participated in the 18 different zine conventions and events.”

Apparently there was some controversy along the way, but in the end, stuff got done.  We certainly aspire to have thousands of zines at our Fest alone!
