Soo… I made a small Panic Book for people who suffer from anxiety. It can easily fit into your pocket or bag/purse. It has about 14 pages full of techniques to calm down and distract you, as well as words of encouragement and reassurance. All techniques in the book are psychologically proven to help people with anxiety :) So it’s not just a bunch of made up bull in there.
Wow, that’s a really nice ask! Thank you for that!
I’ve had better days tbh. My stomach condition has been getting pretty bad and as a result I’ve been low on spoons. But I’m pulling through. I’ve been wanting to print copies of these pocket-sized mini-zines to add to the shop, but with my schedule I haven’t been able to print them yet. Hopefully I will get them selling by the end of the week.
New zine series! Zinelets will be tiny zines - made of one page folded into a pocket-sized 8-page zine - published (ideally) monthly, with a new fandom focus each month. It’ll be available either for free with SASE, or for a moderate printing cost. (Like, twenty-five cents USD, maybe as much as a dollar for color issues.)
Each zine will have either 500+ words of story or at least 3 drabble-length stories, plus art, and other fannish content of some sort. (Puzzle, quiz, short meta bit, filk, poetry, etc.)
Fandoms are not yet decided! It’ll be one fandom per issue. First issue will be a “classic” zine fandom - something that had heaps of paper zines, when those were popular. Second zine will be a fandom that has, as far as I can discover, no paper zines yet. After that… could be anything!
Fandoms being considered for the first issue:
Beauty and the Beast (1987 tv series)
Doctor Who (probably limited to pre-9, but not necessarily)
Lord of the Rings (book versions)
Sherlock Holmes (not BBC Sherlock)
Star Trek (any: TOS, TNG, DS9, etc)
Criteria for first zine fandom:
Must have had more than 100 different print zines made for it
I have to know and like the fandom
A few of the fandoms being considered for second issue (but suggestions are welcome):
Undertale (video game)
Grrl Power (webcomic)
Critical Role (webcast)
The Addams Family (were no zines made for this show? Or have they just not made it to Fanlore?)
Dead Like Me
Miss Fisher’s Murder Mysteries
Or a movie, maybe one of these: Big Hero 6, Frozen, The Martian
Criteria for second zine fandom:
No known paper zines, including doujinshi
I have to know and like the fandom
Let me know if you’ve got suggestions or other thoughts!
The mods would like to apologise for the way we replied a few asks that we had received! This is with regards to the one below. We meant it with a tone of humor (which was of course, lost over the internet;;) Some people found this rude, which we never meant! We were trying to sound more approachable to the people who want to get the zine, instead of coming off as cold and totally professional to the point where we intimidate people from our askbox, so we are very sorry about that. We will work on our tone to come off as friendly, and professional at the same time in the future! :)
Another thing to note is that there has been some confusions regarding no reprints or there being too little zines! We had decided on there being a limited number as mods will be forking out money from their own pockets to print the zines/merch/extras first; so that we could start printing while POs are open so that when POs close, the zines would be on its way to us already. If there was to be an overwhelming amount of orders, then we would open a second run for zine only.
Some people are confusing limited bundles with limited zines!
Take note that zine bundles would remain the same number as stated, but the zine only itself can change in quantity any time. We apologise if we were not clear on that!
A last thing to note is that both mods are in different countries, so while both can work on printing together, only one will be able to deal with shipping. That is another reason why we had wanted a limited amount of zines as both mods are doing this in their free time with full time jobs at hand! Thank you for your understanding!
Hello! Now that I have done some research, I am officially ready to announce that I am starting a Rick and Morty fanzine!
This zine will be 16 pages total, counting the cover pages, and it will have 10 pieces of art, one piece drawn by each applicant. I currently have 9 slots opened, so if you want to apply, please message me over Tumblr or Skype. If you do not want to apply, you don’t have to, but it would be wonderful if you could reblog this post to spread the word to those who do.
All art for the zine MUST be related to Rick and Morty, but it doesn’t have to feature Rick and Morty themselves; you can draw a tribute to any of the supporting characters or even some of the creatures that have only been seen once on the show or in the comics. Pocket Mortys related art is also welcome! If you are considering in drawing art for the zine, all pieces of art must be 5.5 x 8.5 inches.
Thank you for reading this post, and I hope you apply for the zine! :) Applications will end on August 13th.
It was back in 2012 that artist Cam Evans became interested in collecting old VHS tapes from swap meets and anime and sci-fi conventions. This all started with a longing for the warmth of VHS and a nostalgic connection with the characters. Fast forward to 2014 when Cam decides to start experimenting with the tapes in the VCR and begins to photograph the results. After much trial and error, @anime-on-vhs was created on Tumblr and the project continues to grow.
