Xerography Debt #26

Xerography Debt #26

by Joe Biel and Davida Breier

Davida Gypsy Breier's review zine, Xerography Debt, is a labor of love and obsession. Now on its 26th issue, Xerography Debt (Xerox Debt to fans) is "the review zine with personal tendencies," allowing its hand-picked cast of contributors to essay both the zines they love and where those zines find them in their lives. Issue 26 is 50 pages of zine-love goodness, with contributors like Microcosm founder Joe Biel, Eric Lyden, and Fred Argoff reviewing zines as varied as Portland comic diary Milkyboots, the now-defunct Hungover Gourmet, and subject-specific one-offs like The Rainbow Connection--Richard Hunt, Gay Muppeteer. In an age of blogs and tweets, Xerox Debt is a beautiful, earnest anachronism, a publication that seems to come from a different era, but is firmly entrenched in the now. As says Breier in her review of The Ken Chronicles zine, "It is a slice of life packaged in zine form." They want to review your zines in future issues: Davida Gypsy Breier / PO Box 11064 / Baltimore, MD 21212 USA

"This is less a zine review zine than a Zine Revue zine, for while they do review tons of zines (often having varied reviewers contemplate the same publication) what they really do is put on an amzing show about the history, mysteries and magic of zines in general The mechanics of publishing, the philosphy of zine-ism, the search for the first zine, a Where Are They Now of 90s zinsters, a journey into "non Profit" status, and more More MORE! This is basically a multiple zinegasm!"
