PZS 2017 Exhibitor Interviews: Computarded

This year PZS will have different exhibitors Saturday and Sunday. You will find Computarded tabling on Saturday. How did you get into zines? OR How were you introduced to zines?

I was initially inspired by artists like Winston Smith and Jamie Reed. These days I'm blown away by so many artists I'm...

PZS 2017 Exhibitor Interview: Phil Gerigscott

This year PZS will have different exhibitors Saturday and Sunday. You will find Phil Gerigscott tabling on Sunday. How did you get into zines? OR How were you introduced to zines?   I've been reading and creating comic books since about the time I started wearing big boy pants, but I didn't get into zines until college.
