Giant Robot Media

I make zines that are photo, and my older publication is Giant Robot Magazine and I have back issues and reprints! "From the Pit" zine and "Giant Robot". I also co-teach a class about zines at Pitzer College (4 years now).

When did you start making zines ... and why?

Giant Robot began as a stapled and folded zine in 1994. It grew to amazing heights and ended as a full color newsstand publication after a run of 16 years at issue 68.

In January 2017, we rebooted the magazine online and are working to print quarterly.

How do you create your zine content?

We interview Asian American artists, activists, chefs, entrepreneurs, and designers.

Why do you think independent publishing is important?

Independent publishing allows marginalized voices to speak for ourselves. It's crucial to define our narratives rather than let others do so.
