Canzine 2013: Zine Reviews and Links

When people ask about Canzine I say its the indie little sister of TCAF – low key, local artists, and most of the zine and comic price tags are under $10. I picked up a couple of zines and comics on my Canzine adventure, and I’ve decided to do some fittingly little reviews for these little books. I also thought it might be fun to share some links to some of work done by the artists and creators at this year’s festival.

Alice’s ‘Been Reading’ – April & May 2013

I’ve decided to create this new segment on TdotComics – ‘Been Reading’ – to collect all my instagram ‘Currently Reading’ posts and to do a short paragraph on each book now that I’ve finished them and had some time to think. Since this is the first month doing this segment I’ve decided to double up on the fun and cover two months worth of material.
