Yard Sale! zine

Post by alongwaltz » Tue May 12, 2009 04:29

I am starting my very first zine. It is called Yard Sale! and tentatively focuses on music and comics. I might choose a more specific direction (i.e. just Canadian artists) after I see how the first issue turns out.

#1 is in production at the moment and will feature interviews with Bonjay, The Endless Bummer/The Diskettes, and papercubs.com founder Kristin Cheung.

Also, my trip to Toronto Comic Arts Festival, reviews, contests, puzzles, and photos of cats.

to keep informed of when it's finished and available. It should be within a couple of weeks.

That sounds nice. Would you like to send us a few to sell through Caramel? We're due an update soon so let me know and I'll send you some money.

Definitely. Your store stocks pretty much all my favorites.

What should I do?

Yaw, the Facebook group is my one-stop place basically because I found that easiest.

And $3 Canadian.

That does include postage worldwide. It might cost me a little more than $3 to send out a copy to the UK but I counter those charages by making $2 off every copy I sell in person.

Done.


And, future UK users, you will be able to order a copy directly through Marianthi & Co. at the Caramel distro saving all of us on postage costs!

You'll just have to wait a week or two.

You're still the only person to purchase a copy that I don't actually know in person.

So, if you like it, feel free to tell people and recommend them buying one.

Well, Yard Sale! #2 is all finished!

I just got back from the office supply store and cranked out 19 copies using the photocopier.


Yard Sale! #2 is a full 6 pages longer for the same $3 and features interviews with members of The Most Serene Republic and Daps Duo/Hooded Fang/Tonka Puma. Also my trip to Portland, Oregon, a new comic strip called Li'l Moz, reviews, art, games, and more!

I PayPal and ship for free. Head over to the Facebook group (listed in the first post above) for more details!

Thanks!
