Yes, zines are still a thing!

While the term "zine" originated in the 1930s and 1940s, it has seen a resurgence in recent years, particularly among indie and alternative communities.

Zines continue to be a popular medium for self-expression, creativity, and alternative forms of communication and information sharing.

They are often created and distributed by individuals or small groups, and they are not limited to any particular topic or genre.

They can be found in a variety of formats, from traditional paper to digital forms, and are often distributed through zine fairs, independent bookstores, and by mail.

They are also an accessible way for marginalized communities to communicate with each other and gain visibility.
