on Zine Culture
Hello, My name is Aron Nels Steinke and I've been making my own self-published comics since 2006. Because the zine and comics world are merging together more and more I ended up immersed in the Portland zine community unintentionally. The thing is, making a real book on your own even if it is just a couple staples and photocopies is incredibly empowering. To me, my zines are my art and my blog is where I just put up information. Again, like Martha and everyone else has said before me, having a real tactile book in your hand cannot be duplicated with an ebook. Also, zines are so cheap that anybody can do them! You don't need to own a computer. So if you're going to the downtown farmer's market this weekend, be sure and find the Smith Ballroom at Portland State University where you'll find us.
