Light was a long-running and highly influential Canadian zine published by Leslie A. Croutch. Like Fantascience Digest, Light maintained a strong and fairly consistent aesthetic across many issues. Light features a well-executed and busy layout, brimming with compelling illustrations from a variety of artists. Of particular note is issue # 135, an “all-girl” issue featuring content from female artists and writers.
