A zine about zines, edited/compiled by Billy "Proof I Exist" McCall (aka Billy Da Bunny aka Billy Roberts aka the guy who founded Loop Distro).

This zine about zines is for people who are already deeply involved in the culture. Cover by John, of King Cat Comics! So happy to have him be a part of this. He also wrote an article comparing zine fests to comicons. Articles by Todd Taylor (of RazorCake), Jacinta Bunnell (of Girls will Be Boys Will Be Girls...), Ed Kemp of The Word Distribution, Liz Mason from Quimbys, and the list goes on.
