FACTSHEET FIVE

If you want to know what's going on in the kingdom of zines (zinedom) then Factsheet Five is the thing to read. It is a metazine, a zine about zines. The issue I have (#63) boasts more than a thousand zine reviews. That's about all it has. One article was a brief history of zines, but it read more like a bad high school term paper. The other article was an interesting documentary of the various forms that zines take: pop-up zines and flipbooks to name a few. There were two pages of news about various threats to the freedom of speech. The rest was reviews. Not to be a meta-reviewer, I'll simply say that the editor did a good job of capturing the feel of each zine. I laughed until I cried at some of his commentary.
