Attention has deservedly been drawn to De_Ziners this morning, a UK-based collective, posting images of zines on Instagram, but there are other great resources for this kind of thing, too, including the web site Zine Love.
While it’s a useful way to quickly scan a huge range of independent zines out there, most available in print, and comics, too, I would caution that Instagram is a totally useless platform when it comes to sharing links. So this aggregator of the interesting can only really send you down the tubes of the internet in a limited way
In my opinion, you’d be well advised to also bookmark sites like the fantastic Zine Love, dedicated to highlighting all thing self-published and small press, if you want to explore a particular creator or publisher’s work in any meaningful way.
Jam-packed with snapshots of interesting independent comic and zine creations, not only did Zine Love direct me toward De_Ziners but has also highlighted the comics work of the most excellent Robert Wells, creator of the thought-provoking bio-graphic novel, Back, Sack & Crack (& Brain); assembled links leading to the work of James Corcoran, artist on indie hit Alex Automatic and Gareth Hopkins; and interviewed those involved in comic creation and dissemination such as comics reviewer Nicholas Burnam, among others. Well worth adding to your favourite news gathering service.
