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.

Canzine 2012

Canzine is an amazing festival, and I think every comics, magazine, craft or print fan should attend it at least once. Not to mention all the people who liked reading zines to begin with. Zine is short for Magazine – but it’s an abbreviation of the concept, not just the word. In short , it’s an indie thing – zines are little collections of poetry, articles, found images and art collages, and most are hand printed and bound.Canzine is an amazing festival, and I think every comics, magazine, craft or print fan should attend it at least once.
