What is your favorite part of making zines?

The best part about making zines is getting your message or vision out to the public. From there, input and feedback will help the energy around the project grow. That's how it worked for Giant Robot #1 in 1994. The generous feedback inspired the following issue and we only got better from there. If the zine is not for the public, it's still great to get something down on paper for the sole reason of having your thoughts and visions expressed as a marking point. The idea is to keep on going.

What advice would you give to someone who wants to start making zines?

The first step in making a zine is actually doing it. You shouldn't imagine any type of "fanfare" ahead of time. The first step in making a zine is to actually get started and from there, you'll hopefully see the magic of "zine energy" take control. Sounds cheesy, but that's my experience in making a zine. Sometimes you won't know what the ending will be until you put your hands on the project.
