Our zines are a wide array of autobiographical, comics, anthologies, educational, food-related, mental health, and fanzines. We are kindly requesting a full table for space to feature all our zines for the Arizona zine scene.
My name is Jean Munson and I’ve been making comic zines since 2010 and teaching comics and zine making since 2017. 2016 was the year I encouraged my community to make comics and we worked together every year (minus pandemic years), to put out a comic anthology zine. I would love to participate in our neighboring state of Arizona to learn about their festival and build community with each other by making, sharing, and reading their zines. I’ve had a wonderful teaching relationship with Wasted Ink Zine Distro and have nothing but respect for what your scene has achieved in bringing creatives and literacy together.
My name is Gina and I have been drawing comics since I was 12 years old. Comics have been a way for me to record memories and get my feelings on paper. I draw a lot of autobio comics, so I represent myself as a simple cartoon character. I’ve always believed in comics as a way to reach people and to make ideas simple.
I got involved with the Las Vegas comic scene when I met Jean in 2017. I attended an Adult Comic Writing workshop hosted by her at a local coffeeshop, Tiabi. We connected on being women in the comic scene who drew autobiographical work. Since then I have participated in many comic anthologies, as well as distributing my work through zines. As my work grew, I realized a common theme in my comics were anxiety and mental health. I love to connect with people who are like me who might be anxious and I love inspiring others to work on their art. That is why I like to reach out to artists through events like zine making hangouts and artist pop-ups.
