Get to Know Your Zinester: Reliable Comics

Describe your zine style. What can we expect to find at your table?
I have three comic books that were published by Sparkplug Comic Books and I have an ongoing mini-comic called Crime World – I’ll have the new fourth issue at LAZF! I’ll also have some buttons and prints at my table, maybe some other stuff?

Where do you work on your zines?
At home, at work, at the kitchen table, in front of the computer. I try to get the copier to fold and staple the books so I don’t have to do it.

What are your three favorite small-press/DIY publications?
I like mini-comics by people like Tom Neely, Levon Jihanian, Alixopulos, Chris Cilla, Jeff LeVine

What advice would you give to a first-time zinester or to an aspiring zinemaker?
Do a small print run and don’t spend your life savings on it.

What’s the best thing that ever happened to you because of zines?
All of my best friends are small press artists.
