Zines

Dug up from the out-of-print depths, this classic zine is a perfect gathering of Moe Bowstern's words in one place. Taking pieces previously published in other zines (including some of the '90s greats like Nosedive and Mudflap), Second Set Out has stories that never made it to the pages of her legendary Xtra Tuf zine. Within: fishing boat adventures, hitchhiking tales, an abortion story, the praises for long-distance bus travel, and so much more...[ continued ]

Part of Rachel Lee-Carman's continuing series of zines (Show & Tell, Shoe & Tail, Offerings of Grace & Mischief), The Thread is a whirlwind of travels, realizations, dance floors, and sunsets. 

Through hand-written text, photos, comics, and collage, Rachel's zines capture the kind of discovery that zines should embody. Everyday revelations while stumbling, all the highs and lows, figuring it out as you go...[ continued ]

After over a decade in Portland, Oregon, Zach and his wife decide to move out before everything that was once good about the city gets sold off to the highest bidder. They decide on Zach's hometown of Rochester, New York and attempt to get their vintage home goods business, animals, and various belongings across the country. (Spoiler: Everything goes wrong.)

The same tragicomedy that Zach brought to his bestselling book Love is Not Constantly Wondering if You're Making the Biggest Mistake of Your Life is in full effect here...[ continued ]

Another zine classic from Portland's own Moe Bowstern. In the third issue of Xtra Tuf (the zine all about the world of commercial fishing in Alaska) Moe tries out the old ways. Instead of dealing with the drama on the boats, she joins some friends on beach and hauls nets by hand. What follows is an entertaining peek into a world most people don't get to see.

Xtra Tuf #3 is also a zine epic to top all zine epics...[ continued ]
