A zine is a handmade magazine or mini-comic about anything you can imagine: favorite bands, personal stories, subcultures, or collections. They contain diary entries, rants, interviews, and stories. They can be by one person or many, found in stores, traded at comic conventions, exchanged with friends, or given away for free. Zines are not a new idea: they"ve been around for years under various names (chapbooks, flyers, pamphlets). People with independent ideas have been getting their word out since before there were printing presses.

This book is for anyone who wants to create their own zine. It"s for learning tips and tricks from contributors who have been at the fore front of the zine movement. It"s for getting inspired to put thoughts and ideas down on paper. It"s for learning how to design and print your own zine so you can put it in others" hands. Whatcha Mean, What"s a Zine? is for anyone who has something to say.
