Go, Read: Write-Up On 'Zine Find

imageThis report on a late 1970s/early 1980s British comics 'zine is less interesting to me for its description of the 'zine itself than for a near-throwaway comic about the quality of one of the interviews. I am also of the mind that interviews better served history before social media and the industry coming completely on-line made routine candor a potential multiple-day headache and outright bridge-burner. I know from working on a book about a decade ago that most of the good published stuff we found was fanzine material. That's one reason I'm desperate to see this material cataloged and archived, and hope that we can find a way to get back to candor minus the fear of punishing personal retribution.

Even if you have no use for arcane assertions like that one, there's some neat art in there.
