Why do you make zines?

For me, zines are a way to DIY publish my comics. My comics range in genre from action adventure, personal thoughts, and comedic stories. They are a way for me to practice telling better stories whether they are fiction or not. I hope someone either learns something from them or just has a good time.

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

Want to make a zine? Start small and start right away! Whatever your idea is, make it small and manageable. 8 pages is a good length to start with. The more times you do a thing, the better you get at it. You will learn so much from doing that small first zine that making the next one will be a lot easier.
