Get to Know Your Zinester: zach!

Who: zach!

Describe what your zines are about in two sentences or fewer.
I like to play with the medium of delivery, and different authorial voices. If I’m writing a zine from the perspective of a little kid, I want every part of the zine to feel authentic. Ditto my stuff written from the perspective of a loner sexually attracted to Bigfoots, or a paranoid ultra-right wing organization that’s obsessed with cats, or my Choose Your Own Adventure styled memoir that’s about a planet of killer space ants and alcoholism. People have this idea that zines have to look or feel cheap, which I don’t agree with at all. If done well, the physical artifact of the zine can inform and elevate the material, which is something I attempt the best I can.

But also, like I said in the other answer, funny and sad and weird. That’s my goal with everything I do.

What’s the last zine you read that you really enjoyed?
Reverse Flaneur by M. Sabine Rear. A beautifully told and illustrated comic zine about traveling, fashion, and existing in public spaces while blind.
